Verizon is Getting a Bad Rap

Verizon I've heard of...but wtf is an "Akon"?! Shows you how "hip" I am not. Apparently, he's a rap(e) artist. Never heard of him until yesterday. But I imagine your kids or grandkids have. If you haven't seen the video, here's a taste of disgust; it should be seen, because it should not be excused. It should not be ignored. It should not be swept under the rug. Unless you approve of simulated rape of a 14 year old concert-goer (what were her parents thinking?!) by a high profile rap(e) artist at his concert. Unless it doesn't bother you that Verizon does business with this filth. Send Verizon a message, or call (866) 673-9561 from your wireless. Let them know what your views are on their partnership with filth.

Hat tip: Laura Ingraham

The Old Curmudgeon mentions the following:
If you really want the corker, go to the Verizon webpage on their "Code ofConduct". The first line is:
"Verizon is proud of its leadership and reputation as a world-class company that is committed to the highest ethical standards."
I wrote to them and threw that back in their face. Not that I individually
will have much impact, but it's part of the big picture.
But collectively, spreading the word, makes a difference.

Yes - I heard the good news earlier today. Glad to see that Verizon has dropped him like a hot potatoe.

I'm glad to see it was Verizon and not the Dopey Duo (Sharpton and Jackson) that made the decision for them.

Then again,...the two of them seem to turn a deaf ear to all the "ho" references in radio Air Pollution (RAP) anyway.
