Lenscrafters, Tell Your Ad Agency to Skip A&E Bigot Central

Please draw the line on what your company is willing to fund in the way of programming. Don’t allow your advertising dollars to support shows that are driven by hate, resentment and bigotry.

Dear Sir,

Once again A&E states it is planning to air a hate-filled series aimed at viciously attacking my religion of over 45 years—Scientology.

Did you know there are confirmed acts of violence against my church and its members as a direct result of this Ms. Remini and her promotions?

Please draw the line on what your company is willing to fund in the way of programming. Don’t allow your advertising dollars to support shows that are driven by hate, resentment and bigotry.

Join other advertisers like this one who took action: “Following the outreach from members of your organization last September, our company added the ’Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath’ to our do not air list and updated our media buying guidelines to exclude programs that feature content like that seen in Cults & Extreme Beliefs.”

It is time for more voices of tolerance and reason.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Keith Miller
