A number of companies have pulled their ads from a Fox News Channel show as fallout continues over comments made by the host. According to The Hollywood Reporter, at least three corporate advertisers have fled “Justice with Judge Jeanine” over the comments made by Jeanine Pirro.
As we reported previously, Fox News was among those denouncing the comments by Pirro, who suggested on her March 9 show that Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is “Sharia-compliant” because she wears a traditional hijab head covering.
The report quotes a spokesperson for one of the companies, the online marketplace Letgo, saying today: “We absolutely condemn Ms. Pirro’s comments, which are offensive and completely contrary to our values. We are in the process of ensuring our ads will no longer run during her show.”
Pirro’s show, which airs on Saturday nights, has been on Fox News since 2011.
Also among the companies pulling their ads are personal finance company NerdWallet and Novo Nordisk, which advertises the diabetes medicine Ozempic on Pirro’s show.
THR quotes NerdWallet saying: “We’re no longer advertising on this show and don’t have plans to in the future.”
