Home Depot wants you to shut up

Oh, you’re gonna love this. Home Depot is now telling its customers that if you have the audacity to complain about BillOReilly.com’s death threats against Hillary Clinton and suggestions of a terrorist attack against the US Capitol then YOU are the problem.

Here is the letter Home Depot is sending its customers:

Our advertising campaigns have one simple objective to communicate with audiences in the most effective way possible. The Company is receptive to many forms and styles of media as we seek a balanced representation of programming to reach our customer base. Unfortunately campaigns like this one cause us to take time away from our sustainability goals and address a variance of political views.

Get it? If you complain about Home Depot sponsoring Bill O’Reilly’s hate, then YOU are hurting the environment because you’re wasting their precious time.

Somebody in corporate communications is going to get fired.
