The "Florida Family Association" has falsely claimed that they convinced Kodak to pull its advertising from Degrassi, a show on Teen Nick. The FFA launched an effort to convince advertisers to pull out of the show after it recently introduced Adam, a transgender character. Well, it turns out that last week's absence of Kodak advertising on the show had absolutely nothing to do with the FFA and was just a planned break in their media plan. Kodak's response:
Our new 'So Kodak' advertising campaign, featuring Rihanna, Trey Songz, Pitbull and Drake (who—we know!—started his career on Teen Nick), will continue to run on Degrassi. What you're seeing is a planned pause in our media schedule. We'll be back on next week, so keep an eye out for us!
