‘Personality’ boycott over Monica?
April 24 — Bush bashers aren’t the only entertainers being threatened with a boycott these days. Some outraged Americans are asking fellow viewers to boycott Fox Television’s “Mr. Personality” and all companies who advertise on the new reality show, which is hosted by Monica Lewinsky.
SOME OF the calls for boycott are being launched on — of all places — the show’s own message board.
“OK I turned the show on long enough to see who is paying FOX & MONICA’S salaries,” noted one viewer, who then supplied links to the advertisers Arby’s, Chevy and Hyundai, and told viewers how to complain.
“I too am really surprised and appalled for Fox’s choice of Monica Lewinski [sic] for anything,” another posting said. “One great way to get Fox’s attention is to watch the show, make note of every advertiser, and tell each advertiser that you will avoid using their product as long as they are a commercial sponsor for a show with ML on it.”
Some of the posts advocating a boycott, however, were removed after The Scoop called Fox for comment. A spokesman for Fox had no comment.
