Your support makes a difference.
It appears that Florida Family Association monitoring efforts and contact with advertisers have influenced Spike TV to stop airing the rank television show Blue Mountain State. The program has not aired since April 2012.
Spike TV’s Blue Mountain State is a show about the many perversions of a college football team that has orange and blue uniforms like the Florida Gators. Blue Mountain State appeared to be focused on mocking Tim Tebow’s Christian faith. The show highlights the football players and their friends who engage in prostitution, multiple partners, same-sex partners, public sex acts and disgusting acts of male perversion, etc. The words that are spoken by the characters in conjunction with their promiscuity are so offensive that FFA is not going to publish them.
Sadly Blue Mountain State targeted teens with this highly explicit and Christian bashing content on an unrestricted advertiser supported network that any child can watch. MTV Network owns Spike TV.
Florida Family Association sent emails each week to the CEO’s and Marketing VP’s of companies that advertised on Blue Mountain State’s new 2011 fall episodes and reruns in early 2012.
No new episodes have aired for 2012. Repeats from prior years have not aired since April 2012.
The following companies stopped advertising after receiving emails from the Florida Family Association office or supporters’ emails sent to them in response to email campaigns: 21st Century Insurance, 7 Eleven product Extenze, Activision Blizzard video games, Auto Zone Stores, Campbell's Soup, Carfax, Chattem Corp.
