Tell Rush Limbaugh’s advertisers:
“Rush Limbaughâ€™s assertion that â€˜sometimes no means yesâ€™ is an attack on all women, including women who are your customers. Stop advertising on Rush Limbaughâ€™s sexist program.”

â€œNo means yes if you know how to spot it.â€ Thatâ€™s what Rush Limbaugh said Monday on his radio program in a segment about Ohio State Universityâ€™s new sexual assault policy.1
Rush has made countless appalling and sexist remarks in the past, but actively encouraging his male listeners to sexually assault women who have rejected their advances is not just unacceptable, itâ€™s downright dangerous.
All of Rush Limbaughâ€™s advertisers are complicit in this sexist attack on women by continuing to keep the program on the air with their dollars â€“ and they need to immediately end their sponsorship or be held accountable.
In 2012, after Rush called Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke â€œa slutâ€ and â€œa prostitute,â€ CREDO activists pressured major advertisers to drop Rushâ€™s show. It was a huge blow to Rush Limbaugh, the radio stations he works with, and the profitability of his show. But other advertisers are still continuing their support.
Rushâ€™s repugnant statement this week is nothing short of an attempt to justify rape â€“ and it could be the last straw that persuades his remaining advertisers to stop supporting his outrageous and sexist attacks on women.
Tell Rush Limbaughâ€™s advertisers: No means no. Stop supporting Rush Limbaughâ€™s appalling attacks on women. Click the link below to sign the petition.
