UPDATE: Verizon and Carl's Jr Pull KRXQ Advertising

Two more companies have pulled their advertising as a result of the offensive comments made by KRXQ radio hosts Rob Williams and Arnie States.

At 2:33pm EST, I received a statement from Verizon. The company provides phone, Internet, TV, wireless and service bundles to residential, business, government and wholesale clients.

In a one-sentence statement, Verizon wrote:

We have no plans to advertise on KRXQ.

Additionally at 3:40pm EST, I spoke with the Public Relations department at Carl's Jr. They confirmed the restaurant chain withdrew all of their advertising.

Carl's Jr wrote:

We have pulled all of our ads from KXRQ. We did this as soon as the matter was brought to our attention. We appreciate your concern and thank you for contacting CKE Restaurants on this matter.

Regards,

CKE, Public Relations

  • Chipotle

  • Sonic
  • Bank of America
