Squatty Potty, the designers, and creators of Squatty Potty® toilet stools and Unicorn Gold® bathroom products recently enlisted celebrity comedian Kathy Griffin to star in a new ad campaign for the company. In response to the egregious actions by Kathy Griffin, CEO Bobby Edwards has issued the following statement:
“We were shocked and disappointed to learn about the image Ms. Griffin shared today, it was deeply inappropriate and runs contrary to the core values our company stands for. In response, Squatty Potty has suspended its ad campaign featuring Ms. Griffin. We have acted swiftly and decisively to demonstrate our commitment to a culture of decency, civility, and tolerance.”
In other words, just because you’re a comedian, you can’t say or do anything you wish without possible actions. We only wish the word “suspended” was replaced with “terminated”.
