2GB and Advertisers: Immediately cease association with Alan Jones over "died of shame" comment #boycott2gb

***THIS CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN AN OVERWHELMING SUCCESS: NO MAJOR SPONSORS HAVE RETURNED TO ALAN JONES' SHOW. FOR NOW, WE HAVE DEACTIVATED THE PETITION. OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS WE WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE PROGRAM AND WILL REACTIVATE THE PETITION IF NEEDED. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR ONGOING SUPPORT.

“The old man recently died a few weeks ago of shame.” -- Alan Jones

 

 

John Gillard, a psychiatric nurse, passed away earlier this month after a long illness. 

But last weekend, broadcaster Alan Jones told a function that Julia Gillard’s father “died of shame” because his daughter “told lies every time she stood for parliament.”

He also signed a jacket made out of a chaff bag -- a reference to his comment last year that Julia Gillard should be put in a chaff bag and thrown out to sea. 

Today, Jones explained, defended and finally offered a qualified apology for what he said -- but not once did he say “I’m sorry”. 

These comments are cruel, reprehensible and utterly shameful. There is absolutely no justification for attacking someone’s loved ones and disrespecting their grief to score political points. 

Companies should not be supporting these ugly, hateful attacks -- advertisers should withdraw their support from Alan Jones' program immediately.

Please sign and share my petition. More info here: Sack Alan Jones Facebook and 2GB.

Here's some of the 60+ companies that have so far withdrawn support for Jones:

Slater & Gordon Lawyers, McDonalds, Booktopia, NIB, Pestrol, QBE, BoysTown, Anglican Retirement Villages, Chemists’ Own, Oporto, Guardian Funerals, Foxtel, McDonalds, NRMA, Mazda, Harvey Norman,  Woolworths, Coles, Big W, Bing Lee, Challenger, Dilmah, Mercedes Benz, Freedom Furniture, Telstra 24/7, Lexus Parramatta, Commonwealth Bank Women in Focus, Australian International Motor Show, Slater & Gordon, Ford, 7-Eleven, Hyundai, Turner & Freeman Lawyers, Momentum Energy ,Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Geeks to You, State Custodians Mortgage Company, Grace Removals, John Oxley Motors, Toyota, Westend Mazda, Jetset Travel, Sydney City – Opel, Cruisescene, 2nds World, Deakin Univeristy, RSVP, Lite n' Easy, Kathmandu, Gold Coast Theme Parks, Yellow Pages, White Pages, Hyundai, Honda, Blackmores, Thrifty Link, Ozforex, Foxtel and Medibank have pulled advertisements.

I just signed the following petition addressed to: 2GB and Associated Advertisers on Alan Jones' Radio Program.

----------------
Immediately terminate the contract and cease association with Alan Jones.

“The old man recently died a few weeks ago of shame.” -- Alan Jones

John Gillard, a psychiatric nurse, passed away earlier this month after a long illness.

But last weekend, broadcaster Alan Jones told a Liberal Party function that Julia Gillard’s father “died of shame” because his daughter “told lies every time she stood for parliament.”

He also signed a jacket made out of a chaff bag -- a reference to his comment last year that Julia Gillard should be put in a chaff bag and thrown out to sea.

Yesterday, Jones explained, defended and finally offered a qualified apology for what he said -- but not once did he say “I’m sorry”.

These comments are cruel, reprehensible and utterly shameful. There is absolutely no justification for attacking someone’s loved ones and disrespecting their grief to score political points.

Companies should not be supporting these ugly, hateful attacks -- advertisers should withdraw their support from Alan Jones' program immediately.
