Groupon Inc. said it won’t let ads appear on the website for “The Apprentice” after customers complained about the political views of Donald Trump the real estate developer who stars on the NBC television show.
While Groupon isn’t a sponsor of the show, its ads occasionally appear on the related site, Julie Mossler, a spokeswoman for Chicago-based Groupon, said in a statement.
“Enough consumers contacted us to warrant ensuring that we don’t place ads on ‘The Apprentice’ home page in the future,” the statement said. “This isn’t a political statement, it’s avoiding intentionally upsetting a segment of our customers.”
Good for Groupon for doing the right thing...it's high time the sponsors of this show get on board.
