AOL Inc. says it is suspending its advertising on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show in reaction to his derogatory comments about a law student who testified about birth control.
At least seven other companies have pulled ads from Limbaugh’s show because of his comments.
AOL says the company determined that Limbaugh’s comments “are not in line with our values.”
Limbaugh called 30-year old law student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and “prostitute” last week. Fluke testified to Democratic members of Congress in support of a requirement that health care companies provide coverage for contraception. Limbaugh apologized over the weekend.
