In an e-mail to a Letterman critic obtained by POLITICO, a spokeswoman for the Italian restaurant chain wrote that â€œthere will be no more Olive Garden ads scheduled for â€˜The Late Showâ€™ with David Letterman in this year’s broadcast schedule,â€ citing the talk show hostâ€™s â€œinappropriate comments.â€
â€œWe apologize that Mr. Lettermanâ€™s mistake, which was not consistent with our standards and values, left you with a bad impression of Olive Garden,â€ wrote Sherri Bruen, the companyâ€™s guest relations manager.
Excellent. Only three Big Ones left to go.
And I am now officially removing The Olive Garden from my list of sponsors who support a guy who thinks rape and pedophilia involving the 14 years old daughters of GOP candidates is pretty darned funny. Only Mars Candy, Johnson & Johnson, and Kellogs remain among the companies who support that guy.
