7350: Taking Hits.
Hitting the news in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• As Tiger Woods announced his “indefinite leave” from golf, a couple of sponsors were questioning their continued relationships with the man. AT&T is apparently reconsidering its connections—which is pretty bizarre, as there is an obvious text message advertising idea worth pursuing. Gillette is also reducing Woods’ presence in its campaign—which is good news for consumers, as those particular ads are terrible.
• MTV will not air footage of a character, Snooki, being punched by a drunk man in the reality series Jersey Shore. However, the network will still broadcast a PSA on violence against women. Additionally, Snooki will confess to being hit on by Tiger Woods.
