(eTN) The Hate Hurts America Community and Interfaith Coalition (HHA) today announced that Universal Orlando Resorts has joined a growing list of advertisers that have stopped advertising or refuse to place their ads on Michael Savage’s “Savage Nation” radio program.
HHA, a group of religious and civic organizations seeking to challenge hate speech on talk radio, was formed as a result of Savage’s recent rhetorical attacks on Muslims, Islam and the Quran, Islam’s revealed text. Coalition members are calling on advertisers nationwide to stop airing commercials on Savage’s nationally-syndicated program.
Savage has a long history of rhetorical attacks on a variety of minority groups.
Advertisers that have already stopped airing, or refuse to air commercials on “Savage Nation” include AutoZone, Citrix, TrustedID, JCPenney, OfficeMax, Wal-Mart, and AT&T.
The Hate Hurts America Community and Interfaith Coalition includes public officials and civil rights advocates, as well as representatives of the Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Latino, and Asian communities.
