Ford Sucks

As you've heard already, Ford's Jaguar and Land Rover divisions have decided to discontinue marketing specifically to the gay market. The company had a track record of advertising in gay publications such as The Advocate and Out Magazine.

Allegedly, Ford management changed their strategy due to pressure from the American Family Association -- the insanely conservative anti-gay organization that apparently does nothing but hate on homosexuals (and probably jerk each other off when nobody's watching). Ford's spokesperson said that the change in strategy came from budget cuts. Honestly, that's bullshit. How much does it cost to advertise with The Advocate and Out Magazine? Please.

For more information, check out Towleroad and AMERICAblog.

  • well, I just heard on the radio that they're closing some manufacturing plants because they're financially in trouble. They're laying off approx. 7500 ppl. So, who knows, maybe it is because they can't afford it. Although, you're right, it can't cost much to advertise in those mags.

  • Well good. Let them close the plants. Then there'll be more people hating on Ford.
