    When I think of "RockStar", I think of cocaine. The word is slang for crackhead. Michael Savage's whole family are drug dealers. LOL.

    The way I see it, this is all the more reason to buy and drink as much Rockstar as possible.

    If his wife makes enough money, perhaps it will convince him to retire.

    Otherwise, I don't care. I hate Communism worse than I've ever hated Savage, and I consider weapons a far more intimate and personal product than beverages, and my favorite small arms still came out of Soviet Russia.

    I knew, don't really care to much. I always did find it Ironic with Savage talking about the moral decay of this country while his son's business is the sponser of Girls Gone Wild.

    That was research and fact finding. Can't have evidence of moral decay without some girls gone wild, ya know!

    I don't care. I've never heard of this drink...but even if I consumed it regularly, I still wouldn't care. I'm a Dr Pepper man myself. The political views of the people who manufacture my beverages are about the last thing on my mind. This seems especially overblown since the owner is not Michael Savage himself, but his son. I don't see any reason to punish him just for being a Weiner.

    Besides, I think Michael Savage is just a shock jock who says the things he says to make money from his less-than-intelligent listeners. I doubt he actually believes some of the things he says. Maybe if I consumed this product and it was owned by someone who I actually thought was being serious like David Duke, I'd consider boycotting it.

    My faith in the energy drink industry is forever shaken.

    Rockstar Energy Drink Doesn't Want Consumers To Know About Connection To Shock Jock Michael Savage

    Did you know ultra-conservative talk radio guy Michael Savage has intimate family connections to Rockstar Energy Drink? If lawyers for the company have their way, you wouldn't, because over the past week they've started going after people who have publicized the connection. They managed to get one guy's "Boycott Rockstar" facebook account closed without warning, and threatened him with a business libel lawsuit if he didn't publicly apologize. A gay news website, gaywired.com, has had to publish a partial retraction. None of this changes the fact that Michael Savage's son is listed as the founder and CEO of Rockstar, or that Michael Savage's wife is listed as the director, treasurer, and secretary of both Rockstar and Savage Productions. Or that both companies share the same address.

    For those who don't know who he is, Michael Savage—whose real last name is Weiner—is a shock jock who likes to make outrageous statements about, among other things, gays and immigrants. Specifically, he doesn't like either of those groups, and occasionally pops up in the media for (real examples) telling a gay caller to get AIDS and die and calling for the banning of all Muslim immigration to the U.S. He's also a bestselling writer who's written several books on herbalism and homeopathy, which is certainly in the same sphere of expertise as formulating an herb-laden energy drink. Who knows, maybe his son read his dad's books in private.

    We're not calling for a boycott of Rockstar Energy Drink—personally, I think Savage is a giant colostomy bag of a man, but I don't buy energy drinks in the first place—but we think companies owe their consumers a fair amount of transparency when it comes to who's behind a product, or where the profits are going. Imagine buying your favorite ketchup and assuming it's politically meaningless, and then finding out Michael Moore rakes in cash from it. Yes, Michael Moore. How's that ketchup taste now?

    Anyway, so now you know. Michael Savage officially has nothing to do with Rockstar Energy Drink. His son, his wife, and his address are all participants, however.

    Consumerist
    It makes sense that someone selling a product doesn't want to be connected with controversy because that cuts off a customer pool.

    I don't wear my Club Git'mo shirt to work for that reason
