I just came across an ad on facebook for a contest called "Pimp My Laundry Room" put on by Wisk Laundry Detergent which is a product of Sun Products Corporation. You can view the contest here http://laundryhe.com/contest/ . This is a promotion of the Pimp n' Ho lifestyle which is promoting the prostitution of women and the pimps who violate and sell them. I would like to hope that the Marketing firms behind this do not understand what they are promoting here, but we need to let them know that there is nothing cool about being pimped.

This is a complaint put forth by someone concerned by your recent marketing tool, a contest called "Pimp My Laundry Room". I do not believe that anyone at the Sun Products Corporation would willingly promote violence against women and I believe that bringing to your attention certain facts could greatly impact how you choose to continue with this marketing tool. The term "Pimp" is defined as "a man who solicits for a prostitute or brothel and lives off the earnings". Pimps and the act of pimping are associated with the sexual slavery of women as well as the illegal activity of prostitution. Therefore, when Sun Products Corporation develops and promotes a contest associated with such a thing as "Pimping" they are in fact desensationalizing and promoting the act of enslaving a woman in order to sell that woman for sexual services and live off of the earnings of that women. Again, I do not believe that Sun Product Corporation would knowingly promote such a vicious crime against women and I believe that they will act swiftly in order to make changes to this marketing tool and contest. I appreciate your time and look forward to seeing the actions that Sun Products Corporation will take in order to remove themselves from association with crimes of violence against women and illegal activities.
