There has been a lot of attention paid to Arby’s announcement that it no longer would advertise on the Limbaugh show.
It was particularly interesting because Arby’s did not advertise to begin with, so it purely was a political statement, and was the subject of a Limbaugh tweet on Friday.
That has caused a lot of action on Twitter, with Arby’s blocking conservatives who complained, only to unblock them after a firestorm erupted.
On Arby’s Facebook page, there has been dialogue like this going on all weekend:
I don’t particularly care if anyone eats at Arby’s. I do care that advertisers who make needless political statements and join in Media Matters-inspired boycotts accept responsibility.
If you are on Twitter, you can reach Arby’s at @arbys, or at its Facebook page, or at its Contact page.
