A satirical ad criticizing Exxon Mobil that was set to air this week on Arkansas TV stations was pulled at the last minute after the company threatened legal action.
The 30-second, crowd-funded ad, titled "Exxon Hates Your Children," is part of a campaignorganized by three groups targeting the $10 billion per year U.S. taxpayers spend to subsidize Exxon and other fossil-fuel industry giants. Oil Change International, The Other 98%, andEnvironmental Action accuse the company of acting like a bully.
In its latest cease-and-desist memo, Exxon says the ad "is based entirely on factual inaccuracy, nonsensical and illogical statements, and is defamatory toward each of ExxonMobil's 90,000 global employees and their families."
