Washington D.C.-based activist group Defenders of Wildlife is circulating this ad urging Discovery to pull Sarah Palin’s forthcoming nature docu-series.
The group is heading up a petition drive to fund an ad campaign to stop the show, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” for which Discovery is reportedly paying Palin $2 million for eight episodes. The show is set to air on TLC.
Their tagline also urges advertisers: “Don’t sponsor it.”
The protestors are particularly peeved about the former Alaska governor’s environmental record. They say she championed aerial wolf-killing programs and aggressively advocated for oil drilling in wildlife habitats.
