Loyal daytime fans aren’t the only ones outraged over ABC’s decision to cancel All My Children and One Life to Live. According to seriouslyomg.com, so is the Hoover vacuum conglomerate, and they’re doing something about. Namely, pulling their ads from the network.
The company recently posted the following message on their Facebook:
To all the loyal ABC soap fans,
I want you to know from me personally that we hear you loud and clear. My wife and mother are both passionate viewers of All My Children and One Life to Live, as are many of my colleagues here at Hoover. We were and are as disappointed with this news as you are.
In fact, we will discontinue our advertising with ABC this Friday, 4/22. We’re making every attempt to pull our spots from these programs sooner.
Because we feel that’s not enough, we also want to help get your voice heard with ABC. So, we’ve set up a special email address, SaveTheSoaps@Hoover.com, to help pull together the mass emotional outpouring of support for our beloved ABC soaps and get it to our contacts at ABC. Please, send your emails to us at SaveTheSoaps@Hoover.com, and we’ll get every, single last one of them to ABC.
We’re 150% committed to doing what matters most to you – so if there’s anything else we can do to help or you have any ideas, please email this address, and we will respond to you personally.
Thank you for standing up for what matters to you! We need more of that in this world.
Vice President of Marketing
Kudos to Hoover for standing up to ABC and for encouraging the ever vocal soap fan community to stand up and be heard, too.
