Personally, I am not asking for a boycott. Someone in Facebook wrote this
A Manifesto for Willing Willie Advertisers
by Dennis Garcia on Tuesday, March 29, 2011 at 7:19am
Dear Advertisers on WIlling Willie
I am not for a boycott of products at this point. I am hoping your conscience will act on this matter. In facebook, there is a manifesto.
We will no longer sit by and watch as our children’s identities are formed by superficial and trashy TV programs.
We are sick and tired of the constant debasement and exploitation of the poor, the use of young women as sex objects – as well as the shabby treatment that impressionable kids get in programs like this.
From hereon, we are silencing the images that enter our homes and collide with the kind of values that we want our children to be raised with.
We will not hesitate to boycott your products if you continue propping up TV shows that are crass, vulgar and irrelevant to our lives.
This is not a threat but a promise.
If you have not seen the video, here is an edited one made just for the sponsors:
Look at what they are saying about your sponsorship. @bethangsioco says “Advertisers’ choice of shows to support reflect the values they have. Profit is not d end all and be all. Willie Revillame isn’t worth it.”
