As the Rush Limbaugh show became embroiled in
Rush Limbaugh's attacks on a female college student are scaring off advertisers. controversy Friday, Cleveland Cavalier's owner Dan Gilbert made a hasty exit, declaring his company would no longer support the talk-radio host with advertising dollars.
Gilbert announced via his Twitter account that Quicken Loans Inc. was pulling its ads from the show in protest over Limbaugh's verbal attacks on a female college student.
"Due to Rush Limbaugh's inflammatory comments along w/valuable feedback from our clients & staff, Quicken Loans has suspended ads on his show," according to a 4:09 p.m. Tweet attributed to Gilbert.

Do tou think he should allow these advertisers to resume their purchases ehn this all blows over? I am sure they will want to purchase more spots.
As for Limbaugh, he wil continue to laugh all the way to the bank.
he will get better sponsors....
Who is “Quicken Loans?”
And Quicken loans is not a service I will use.
Go F$%% yourself!
So good of these slut-loving CEOs to give us a list of products to boycott.
Rush can sponsor his own show for as long as he cares to air it.
Where was all this outrage when sites like the Huffington Post called Bristol Palin a slut? How about when Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a slut? How about when Joy Baher called Christine O’Donnell a slut? What about when Elizabeth Edwards called Ann Coulter a whore?
What about when NOW sponsors “Slut Walks” and tells women they should “embrace the slut label”?
Who cares about Quicken Loans? Or Select Comfort. I hate the bed I got from them. It’s like it only raises up and down in one area, not my contour like they show on TV. Way over priced.
It’s time for some new adverts, I say. I’ll buy.
They don’t remember the Florida Orange Juice debacle where their sales jumped after being attacked as a sponsor on EIB.
Quicken loans is fairly shady anyway, glad to see him stop supporting them.
“Call 1-800-866-quicken. That’s one eight hundred eight six six quicken. That’s one eight hundred eight quick quick sicken.”
I read on Twitter that Auto Zone has now pulled ads from Rush’s show.
Dumb, whining sluts are many advertisers’ target market.
That says a lot about their products...
Do they advertise the sleep # bed?
Do they advertise the sleep # bed?
Gosh I wonder who actually buys loans from Quicken —lezbos and Occupy types? This will blow up in their faces, and quickly.
Amongst his many sponsors over the years were such advertisers as Florida Orange Juice, and Snapple. While they were being mentioned by Rush, their sales went through the roof, when they chose to drop him (for various reasons); their sales were never the same again. All current sponsors of Rush should keep this in mind.
Just a second short of loan-sharking.
Rush has so many companies waiting on the side to take the spot...
I guess Rush’s show was offensive to female auto mechanics. Auto-erotizone can now try airhead america for their ads.
Quicken can kiss my ass. Got along fine all my life without ‘em.
I would guess that Clear Channel has a waiting list for ads during Rush’s show. Maybe Trojan is next.
I’m sure that there are companies large and small lined up around city blocks waiting to take Quicken Loans’ place.
I was growing weary of their ads, anyway.
Also gives Rush more time to flog ‘2 If By Tea’.
It’s unbelievable those idiots expect us to pay for their recreational screwing.
‘Quicky’ loans, to go along with SlutFluke - who is too poor to buy Quicken anything, because all her summer money goes to buy her birth control parephenalia.
Can’t remember where I saw the advert brands but
I’m sure it was SC which is the sleep # bed.
You’re a coward and a wussy...
Oh, and YOUR TEAM SUCKS, TOO.
In other words, he bent over and grabbed the ankles.
have you found something better than select comfort? I am desperate.
El Rushbo, you need to come up with a rubber that fits to a Two for Tea.
Tut! Tut! Such language! ;-) You should have said: “Go Fluke yourself!” ;-) (We learned today that Fluke rhymes with luck, and other words....)
You go quicken! Respond to complaints from the occupy crowd - the folks with no jobs and no prospects for future employment. They’ll be good customers for you.
I wish they’d stop calling her a student. She’s an activist.
No problem for me O'Reilly Auto Parts is the best in town.
Wait a little while, they will be going cheap soon. Rush won’t mind. ;-)
When “TWO if by TEA” drops him, then I’ll worry.
the conservatives need to instigate a twitter dump of their own - first Sleeptrain, now QuickenLoans...two can play this game
I did like how Rush stated today that he had hope for the woman’s lib movement because they were gonna pick themselves up by the bra straps and carry their weight.
So this Georgetown woman is going broke because she cannot afford means to avoid becoming pregnant???
A caller posited (satire)that why didn’t she just go for an abortion which is already cost free?
On Thread, the leftist media is ill.
I wonder if they are already having trouble selling it in some markets...?
I get EIB on a FOX FM station that also carries Ingram, Savage, Hannity.
Im hearing A LOT more of Rush’s parody ads these days. I’m fairly certain these air in place of unsold local ad time.
Also - these Quicken and SC ads air during all programs - not just Limbaugh - so this could be hurting other conservative talkers on the same network - depending on how ad time is sold.
I’ll be sure to tell anybody who asks - - and I am in a related business and often get asked for advice - - to avoid Quicken Loans like the freaking plague.
Not yet. I want (can’t remember what they’re called) but it’s like a hospital bed.
I was going to look at SC. They have them but not now. I sleep setting up most of the time but I slide down and that’s not comfy. We bought our SC abt 1990 and it was close to 3,000 then.
Not sure about tempurpedic is made of. Sounds like it might cause one one to sweat. They make that kind of ‘hospital’ bed. Damit, can’t think what it’s called.
Why do you need one. Back?
Trojan! Now that would be funny.
The leftists are well organized and companies are scared of them
Are they also boycotting MSNBC??
The ads are so condescending.
It's like they are making themselves sound like some kind of low IQ redneck.
In some parts of Dallas it's called Vatos Zone...
That was last year, leftist ethics change depending on who is talking and what political advantage they can get from selective outrage.
I dropped Turbo Tax when they left the Glenn Beck show.
