Kellogg - Mental Health Mockery
FLOYD KNOBS, INDIANA -- Today, April 6th, 2013
While watching the Final Four game on Channel 32 broadcast from Louisville, KY, my family observed a crude, insensitive, and derogatory advertisement about Cheeze-Its crackers. It depicted a cartoon character in a mental institution suffering from a condition involving Cheeze-It crackers! This was not the least bit funny to us, nor should it be to anyone, especially to those who have or know someone with any kind of mental disability.
I contacted Channel 32 who said they had no control over CBS promotions and they gave me the number to reach CBS. Of course, no one was able to answer the phone and address the situation. So, folks, I'm giving you the number in hopes that you'll call them "during regular business hours" and let them you how offensive you think this commercial is, too. Thanks so much for your help!!!!!
