Howard Stern and his fans are gearing up for his big debut tomorrow on America’s Got Talent on NBC, and while some may be protesting the shock jock’s new gig, one famous pizza sponsor is not budging on pulling their ads from the show. So, who is the pizza that has Howard Stern’s back? Read on to find out!
Last week we learned that the Parents Television Council sent out a letter to over 90 sponsors of America’s Got Talent, over the fact that Howard Stern has joined the show. Despite the threats, TMZ reports that the popular pizza chain, Pizza Hut, has flat out refused to pull their ads from the show.
A rep for the company spoke to the gossip site, and told them: “Pizza Hut strives to maintain the highest standards of quality and excellence in our communications to the public. Our advertisements are no exception, and are designed to draw attention to our products and appeal to a broad audience,” adding: “Unfortunately, we may not always success in generating a positive impact on every guest, and we apologize if our methods offend some.”
To be completely honest, I have to agree with Pizza Hut here. I believe Howard Stern is going to draw people in to America’s Got Talent because people are going to be curious about the shock jock. Who knows, you may be pleasantly surprised by him on the show!
