Below is a forward of a message about another commercial. I will work on
getting contact information out.
I am not a Wrestling fan, but Sunday night I found myself watching wrestling
with friends on Pay Per View. It was the World Wrestling Federation Summer
Slam. Late in the show a promo for their web site was shown. It showed a blind
man walking with a cane right out in front of a bus and being hit and the
over says approximently "WWF dot com over 20 million hits a week."
Thought you might want to know or let others know. To me it was highly
offensive. This was the same wrestling match were Governor Jessie Ventura of
Minnesota was a referee so it was pretty widely viewed. They likely show the
promo on their on other cable channels during their programs.
