I fail to see how that matters. What matters is that she offended the consumers of Slim Fast and Slim Fast reacted accordingly. This is not censorship or racism, it is pure market driven economics’. Slim Fast is selling a product; if their spokesperson offends their customers they cannot sell that product. They have two options, hope foolishly that the offended customers will purchase their product despite being offended by the companies spokesperson or remove the offensive spokesperson and replace that person with one which will not offend their customers. The harsh reality is unavoidable, offended customers stop purchasing products that offend them.

censorship? censorship is when you prevent people from hearing what is said. this is a private company deciding that the poor taste and general idiocy of their spokesperson is enough to stop paying her.

my god, people like that piss me off. If a white chick said it, the results would have been the same. These dipshits try to get sympathy just because they're black? In fact, something like this did happen to a white chick. Specifically, the dixie chicks. To call this racism is as retarded as her bush jokes probably were.
