Whoopi yanked from Slim-Fast web pages

After Whoopi Goldberg's profanity-laden routine comparing President Bush and Vice-President Cheney to male and female genetalia during the New York Democratic Rally for candidate John Kerry last week, quite a few people contacted Slim-Fast Corporation threatening to boycott them if they did not distance themselves from Goldberg and her comments.

Goldberg is one of Slim-Fast's primary spokespersons. Her face topped all of Slim-Fast's web pages. At least until this morning.

Just FYI, the founder of Slim-Fast is a major Democratic donor. I refuse to give them any of my money.

What happened to the First Amendment? Does Ms. Goldberg not have the right to express her opinion?

There's a time and place for everything as the song goes. And speaking with such vulgarity in a public forum is going to have repurcussions. Yes Ms.Goldgerg was exercising her freedom of speech and slimfast was exercising their right not to have a person representing them with such a vulgar rep. Why is it ok for her to say anything but it would be repulsive if a Repub. called her a lowdown N****r. Lines shouldn't be crossed. Decorum. why must certain people in each party demonize the other side. We are all Americans and we should be working together not against each other or be so VIRULENT with our criticisms. but that is just my humble opinion.

Wow, you people argue like children. It scares me that you're allowed to vote. Yes, let's not buy from a corporation because someone who works there doesn't think like me. Jeeze, you're pathetic. People say what they want and just because their associated with something else doesn't mean they represent anything to do with the products of that something else. If I can figure that out and you can't, you confirm my fear that this country has no positive future.
