    Default Ice Cream flavor protested by women(likely fat) at grocery stores?



    Issue Details
    Ben & Jerry's Tasteless Ice Cream Flavors
    Ben & Jerry's announced their newest ice cream flavor which sounds anything but appealing. Schweddy Balls is the best they could come up with. The vulgar new flavor has turned something as innocent as ice cream into something repulsive. Not exactly what you want a child asking for at the supermarket.

    The name originated from a Saturday Night Live skit featuring Alec Baldwin as Pete Schweddy, owner of a holiday bakery called Season's Eatings. "There are lots of great treats this time of year," Schweddy says. "Zucchini bread, fruitcake, but the thing I most like to bring out at this time of the year are my balls."

    He then explains that he sells popcorn balls, cheese balls, rum balls—balls for every taste—and the ball puns proceed for about four minutes. Ben & Jerry's chose to go with fudge-covered rum and malt balls for their flavor. The skit culminates in Baldwin stating that "No one can resist my Schweddy Balls."

    In the past, Ben & Jerry's has released controversial ice creams, like a special edition of Chubby Hubby called Hubby Hubby last year which celebrated gay marriage. It seems that offending customers has become an annual tradition for Ben & Jerry's.

    The ice cream is being released in a limited batch, which means it will be distributed nationwide but only for three or four months. If it proves popular, another batch might be forthcoming, but we hope not.

    "The name is irreverent," says Ben & Jerry's spokesman Sean Greenwood. "But we've always been about having some irreverence and having some fun ... We're not trying to offend people. Our fans get the humor."

    TAKE ACTION

    Please send Ben & Jerry's Public Relations Manager, Sean Greenwood, an email letter requesting that no additional Schweddy Balls ice cream be distributed. Also, highly recommend they refrain from producing another batch with this name or any other offensive names or you will no longer be able to purchase their products.

    fat women would NEVER boycott icecream, even if it was named "eat it you fat bitch".

    Ruby Tuesday's new pretzel burger "Fun Between the Buns" ad campaign is tasteless, blurring everything in the middle of the burger similar to an advertisement that reveals inappropriate images. Ruby Tuesday is replicating a form of media that is gaining popularity and intended to be naughty but should be avoided if a company is concerned with its reputation.

    The only question is which is worse, the slogan "Fun Between the Buns" or the graphic that is included with it? Parents do not want their children repeating the slogan, and the graphic is equally disturbing because it is symbolizing nudity. Everything between the top and bottom hamburger buns is pixelated, including condiments, meat, cheese and other toppings. This should only be done when trying to protect someone's privacy and should not be tolerated when unnecessary in any other form of media.

    Marketing campaigns using sexual innuendos are never appropriate, especially when advertising food for a family restaurant. Offensive ads cause parents to lose their appetites and their respect for a company.

    Take Action

    Please send Ruby Tuesday an email letter urging the company to discontinue the "Fun Between the Buns" ad campaign immediately.

    Rent-A-Center has joined other companies in tasteless advertising. Its latest commercial begins with a man and woman walking into their store wearing nothing (their fronts and backs are pixelated) but obvious they are both n*ked. The commercial ends with a n*de man lying on a sofa with one leg propped up exposing a pixelated cr*tch.

    This isn't a first for Rent-A-Center. Rent-A-Center is following a trend in crude commercials. Their last offensive commercial had a male wearing a pair of women's th*ng p*nties peeking out over his daisy dukes while wearing a cropped tank top.

    This ad is airing as early as 6:00 pm ET/5:00 pm CT when children are likely watching. It is airing on numerous networks including family channels. This ad is vile and disgusting; Rent-A-Center should be ashamed of themselves.

    TAKE ACTION

    If you agree this commercial is inappropriate please give Rent-A-Center a call asking them to pull their pixelated ad immediately at 1-800-665-5510 for Customer Service or 1-800-422-8186 at their Headquarters. (Rent-A-Center is possibly blocking emails sent from our server. You may use the link on the right and follow the instructions to send an email from your server.)

    NBC's newest program, "Camp," could be misleading to parents with this title, but with a TV-14 DLS rating you can be assured this will not be for family viewing. The name of the show along with the age of the cast members will attract young viewers. The content in this program (and even in its commercials) is inappropriate for tweens and teens and will send the wrong message to America's youth. New episodes air on Wednesday evenings at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 CT.

    Unacceptable content in the program included:

    "This is a p*rn desert."
    "Fifty Shades of Little Otter" (Little Otter is the name of camp)
    Mom (camp director and owner) walks in on son m*sturbating
    G*mbling add*cts
    P-word used and one camper has g*nital h*rpes
    S*xual innuendos
    Politically Correct situations with a h*mosexual couple

    (An asterisk is used to ensure our emails get through to those who have signed up to receive our alerts. Otherwise, referencing specific words would cause our emails to be blocked by some internet filters.)

    NBC's newest show is irresponsible and tasteless. It is appalling that NBC intends to air a show that features immoral behavior in a positive light while attempting to draw in young viewers with the title and adolescent plot of the program.

    Take Action

    Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's program "Camp." This week's national sponsors were: Applebee's, Geico, Miracle Whip (Kraft), Macy's, Lexus, Outback and Petsmart.

    Urge advertisers to place the program on their "do not advertise" list in protest of the attempt to desensitize America and our children by promoting inappropriate behavior.

    That Arctic Monkeys album cover and burger ad were merely suggestive as in there was no graphic imagery, but they got censored anyway for being suggestive. I'd only give it as much as a 12-rating. Most 10 year olds have seen porn.

    If you watch your average pop/r&b/etc videos there's plenty of blatant graphic imagery in those and graphic lyrics too but they don't get censored. It's all fucking bullshit.
