The Embassy Suites hotel chain has pulled its advertising from CBS.com because the ads rotated onto the Web site for the Late Show with David Letterman.
The move came in response to a campaign to get Letterman fired and to boycott his advertisers after his controversial joke about one of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s daughters.
But Embassy Suites, a Hilton brand, never advertised on the TV program. And Access Hollywood reports that the chain pulled the ads from CBS.com only temporarily and quoted a spokesman saying the chain is not taking sides.
Letterman has followed up with an apology and a Top 10 list entitled Top Ten Things Overheard At The “Fire David Letterman” Rally.
