American Eagle Boycotts Black Jesus, Thanks To One Million Moms

default_2939e8acdf9ef1b900e739faLooks like conservative pressure group One Million Moms have claimed their first scalp over Black Jesus.

Last week they issued a campaign for readers to write to those advertising during the Cartoon Network show.

And they got a hit! American Eagle Outfitters wrote back saying,

Dear One Million Moms,

Thank you for expressing your concerns.  American Eagle Outfitters does not support or affiliate ourselves with messaging of the show Black Jesus and have pulled our spots from their particular broadcast times. Advertising during this show was an oversight on our part and we sincerely apologize for any offense this may have caused.

Thank you,

Kayt Pritts
American Eagle Outfitters
Associate Manager, Communications

One Million Moms also say,

After recent victories, a few of our supporters have expressed they would like to send out a thank you email when a company responds positively to our concern. We encourage you to visit the company website and send your comments through their "Contact Us" form.

So, if you wish your voice to be heard by American Eagle regarding this decision, feel free. Right here.
