CBS Rejects Gay Dating Ad for Super Bowl

Feb 1, 2010  •  Post A Comment

CBS turned down a $2.5 million Super Bowl ad that would have promoted the gay dating Website ManCrunch, saying it didn’t pass muster with the network’s Standards and Practices department, B&C reports.

A network spokeswoman said CBS is always open to working with clients on alternative ads, but a source told B&C that the dating company’s creditworthiness was also an issue. ManCrunch wasn’t available for comment, B&C said.

  1. It’s about time somebody stood up to the sexual-deviate pressure groups that seem to have taken over this country. Once again, I am proud to be a CBS Alumnus, even though they fired me!

  2. Let me guess…
    They fired you for being a loud-mouthed, homophobic misanthrope, right?!?!?!?

  3. So, Jack, if disagreeing with someone and speaking out makes them loud-mouthed, scared of them (homophobic) and a hater of mankind (misanthrope) then that makes you loud-mouthed, Redblanchardaphobic and a misanthrope as well. Welcome to the club.
    Red, yes it is about time.

  4. I have been to gay clubs and have many bi, gay, transgendered friend, so I definitely don’t mind a gay advertisement. It was just this wasn’t done in good taste, and it was done for free advertisement that the media gave them. I dont think many up and coming websites have $2.5 mil to throw down for a 30 sec ad. If they did the money could be better directed to larger gay audiences on many different avenues.
