LOL, too funny!
Jenny Craig gets Monica and SlimFast gets Whoopi. What is it with the diet industry?
I haven't read the rest of the replies on this thread but slimfast's founder was a BIG Clinton supporter.
Done. I wrote to Unilever and to SlimFast.
The odorous cow must go before we buy any of their products.
Is there a list of the hollyweird Bush-Haters so we can target all their income providers, movies and advertising?
He's a Kennedy Catholic, that's how. Anyone else would have been mortified at being associated with that display. Not to mention concerned at how this is going to be viewed in "flyover country.
The clothing she wears on those commercials look like maternity outfits. Never will one see her "slimfast" in a tight outfit...It's total BS!
Thanks for the tip. I just worry (not to mention being bugged by my kids)about skipping too many meals. I have to also watch my budget. I'll check out the health food aisle to see what is available. If it tastes yucky, I won't be able to use it though.
As you probably know, Ms. Goldberg recently made highly disrespectful remarks about the President of the United States.
I know that spokespeople are selected to present an image of a company to consumers. I hope that this is not the image that you would like associated with your organization.
Although I enjoy your products and have used them for quite some time, I cannot comfortably continue to purchase your products so long as Ms. Goldberg remains your spokesperson.
I hope that you will reconsider her as a representation of your organization. Please keep in mind that every individual has the right to express their personal views, but when they do so in a manner that alienates a large percentage of the population, the image that they represent becomes tarnished, to the point that their endorsement of a particular product or organization is actually detrimental.
I hope that you will not send me a simple form letter saying that you do not agree with her rhetoric, but that she has the freedom to express her views, because when you choose a spokesperson, it is not only their celebrity personality that is affiliated with your organization, but also their character.
Here's what I wrote to Unilever:
Dear Ms. Goldfarb,
It was brought to my attention that Whoopie Goldberg, who is the spokesperson for SlimFast, presented a foul mouthed, drunken tirade at a Democratic fundraiser recently. Her remarks made toward the President were apalling. We cannot afford bad publicity, and I don't think Unilever would appreciate negative consumer reaction.
Your company might want to consider hiring a different spokesperson who represents a more positive image for your product, SlimFast.
Like I said, crafty...
Because some of them are owned by Heinz
Thanks for bringing this to attention. I should be mindful about dispensing this advice. Thing is, when my mother's doctor suggested that I try this, she was in the final stages of cancer, had no appetite and hated Ensure. The doc even suggested that I put ice cream in the blender with the mix. I guess he just wanted to make sure that she would keep something down.
These companies probably figure that Fat Boy aka Ted Kennedy will lose that weight one of these days.
Was there not one person who taped this event? And if anybody did, can we get it out onto the Internet?
"All the diet meal companies (Slimfast, Lean Cuisine, Weightwatchers, etc) donate heavily to the Democrat party. I don't know why, either."
Have you seen Hillary' butt lately? Think of what she would be worth as a spokescreature!! Maybe they could get her and ol' Crazy Al Gore as a team!
As for Whoopi, never trust anyone without eyebrows!
Her potty mouth doesn't bother me... her Marxist politics do.
Whenever CMT runs the Whoopi Slimfast commercial, I change channels.
Remind me not to photo copy anything on that machine. Yuck!
