    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Comedian Whoopi Goldberg (news) will no longer appear in ads for diet aid maker Slim-Fast following her lewd riff on President Bush (news - web sites)'s name at a fund-raiser last week, the company said on Wednesday.


    Florida-based Slim-Fast said it was "disappointed" in Goldberg's remarks at last Thursday's $7.5 million star-studded fund-raiser at Radio City Music Hall in New York.


    "Ads featuring Ms. Goldberg will no longer be on the air," Slim-Fast General Manager Terry Olson said in a statement, adding that the company regrets that Goldberg's remarks offended some
    customers.

    Well, that's one way to lose a sponsor.

    I guess Whoopie will have to sell the ranch and move into Motel 6.:rolleyes:

    naw, she could always hawk for Listerine - kills germs and bad breath.

    Masengill Douche products to get that fresh and clean feeling.

    Tampax Tampons - to stop the flow

    and maybe

    Kaopectate - to stop that running feeling.

    I'm not really sure why Slim Fast picked her in the first place. The gawd awful clothes she wears you would never be able to tell if she lost weight or not.

    No truth in advertising worries in that case.

    Maybe they thought showing posters of her with their product would make people lose their appetite.
