“When we heard that our ad aired during Jill & Jessa: Counting On, we decided to adjust our media plan,” a representative of Combe Inc, the company behind the products Just For Men and Vagisil, said.
Accordingly, apart from Combe Inc, seven other advertisers demanded to have their ads taken down from the Duggar family’s reality show. Among them were Wrigley, Ring.com, Combe Inc., Credit Karma, Gazelle.com, RCN Corporation, X Out and Chattem Inc.
It can be recalled that prior to this report, seven advertisers previously aired out their desire not to appear on “Jill & Jessa: Counting On.”
Cici’s Pizza, The UPS Store, Pure Michigan, Whitewave Foods, Choice Hotels, Mattress Firm and Verizon were one in saying they do not want their brands shown on the spinoff of “19 Kids and Counting.”
“Cici’s prides itself on being a family-friendly restaurant,” a rep pointed out about not being associated to “Jill & Jessa: Counting On” show.
“When we learned one of our ads was placed adjacent to controversial programming, we took immediate action to stop it.”
Back in August, People reported about Josh Duggar’s “double life.”
The reality star allegedly cheated on his wife and even had a pornography addiction.
“I have been the biggest hypocrite ever,” he said in a statement. “While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife.”
The “Jill & Jessa: Counting On” cast continued by saying, “I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him.”
