SeekingArrangement.Com to Support “Sugar Daddy,” Rush Limbaugh, During Crisis
LOS ANGELES, March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Rush Limbaugh’s radio comments about Georgetown student, Sandra Fluke, in which he called her a “slut” and “prostitute,” have cost him dearly. In the past few days, groups such as Daily Kos Blog and Media Matters for America have called for a boycott of Limbaugh’s show. Two radio stations have dropped his show and 26 advertisers, including Quicken Loans, ProFlowers, Sleep Train, Sleep Number, Legal Zoom, All State and Sears, have currently withdrawn from advertising.
Despite the public outrage, SeekingArrangement.Com, the world’s largest “sugar daddy” and “sugar baby” website, announced today its decision to begin advertising on the Rush Limbaugh show for the first time ever. The moniker of “sugar daddy” is that of an older, successful, wealthy man romantically involved with a younger, beautiful woman, much like the relationship that Rush shares with his much younger wife, Kathryn Rogers.
“Rush Limbaugh is one of the greatest examples of the modern day Sugar Daddy,” says Brandon Wade, Founder and CEO of SeekingArrangement.Com. “We wouldn’t feel right if we didn’t come forward and support him in his time of need.”
SeekingArrangement.Com submitted its advertisement inquiry to the Rush Limbaugh show today, asking to purchase as much as $500,000 worth of advertising inventory from his show. If approved, 30-second and 60-second radio spots for SeekingArrangement.Com will begin running on the Rush Limbaugh show next month.
“Many will question why we are supporting Rush Limbaugh even though he is guilty of using the same terms that many in mainstream media have used to describe Sugar Babies,” says Wade, who holds a BS and an MBS from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “But we think he is being treated unfairly. While many in the mainstream media have yet to apologize for mistakenly calling Sugar Babies ‘prostitutes,’ Rush Limbaugh did. Sugar Daddy or not, the right to free speech should never be boycotted.”
