Charlie Sheen dropped by Hanes

January 7th, 2010 // 26 Comments

While CBS busts out the whitewash because your dad thinks Two and a Half Men is hilarious, Hanes immediately dropped Charlie Sheen from it’s ad campaigns the day following his arrest, according to the AP:

“It’s a pretty standard, straightforward call when somebody who’s in your commercials is arrested on suspicion of something of this magnitude,” Hall said. “And we would suspend the ads both for the company and, really, for Mr. Sheen and his family as well. Given the publicity, it makes sense to not air those ads during that time.”
Hall said the television ads were stopped effective Dec. 28, the first business day after Sheen was arrested. He said some print ads will continue to appear into the spring.
“Unfortunately, the production schedule of those publications do not allow us to pull those ads,” Hall said.

Ironically, however, Hanes continues to sell wife-beaters. (I’m on to you.)

    All kidding aside, it is refreshing to see someone do the right thing for once.

    Hanes did the right thing because I honestly believe Charlie Sheen is going to go and do an O.J. on somebody(s) in the not too distant future. He looks like he isn’t all there….if you know what I mean.

    I won’t be buying any Hanes products in the future, and it has nothing to do with the miscreant Sheen. I’m not putting my money into a company whose advertising is illiterate: “A collar that lays flat”?

    ‘Lay’ takes an object: “the hen lays an egg,” “the mason laid some flagstones on the patio,” etc. Hanes is referring to a collar that lies flat. They’re either genuinely ignorant about the language, or they’re deliberately talking down to the great unwashed masses.

    Either way, I don’t trust them next to my nether bits.

  22. In fine roots of the 2010 spring tide,Christian Louboutin has incredible cake followed by the release of this super loose,do not think the designer was a little resistance to trend means,as if exhausted the infinite creativity of our expectations,this time we finally see the dawn of shoes innovation and focus on the heel on the limitless possibilities.
