    I choose this name so thoughtless fuckwits like yourself would feel smart. Of course you demonstrated that you are incapable of coming up with decent comebacks at the same time.

    I shop at Lowes. They (a company) can support whoever they wish. And really, when was the last time TLC had any good shows on it?

    SEATTLE (AP) -- Twenty-five former Hertz drivers at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport have filed a lawsuit claiming they were fired based on their race, religion and nationality.
    The former employees are Muslims who were born in Somalia.
    The lawsuit filed Wednesday in King County Superior Court claims Hertz Corp. terminated them after they refused to clock out for prayers. The lawsuit claims they had not been required to clock out previously and the rules were changed to target Somali Muslims.
    Hertz officials could not be reached for comment after business hours. But a spokesman said previously that other drivers who were suspended in September returned to their jobs after agreeing to clock out. The workers who are suing want to be reinstated with back pay, plus reimbursement of lost benefits and attorneys' fees.

    Instead of apologizing, they should print "lowes hates all arabs" on their recipts and put in non-arab drinking fountains and make arabs use the back door.

    Much rather have people and businesses wear thier bigotry on their sleeves, than hide it.

    Maybe have a combo Quran burning/home appliance sale....?

    I love when people try to act as if they are more culturally aware and sensitive......and then say that Arab=Muslim.

    Did they do something I'm missing besides ceasing to advertise during the show and implementing a policy where employees have to clock out when they take time from their shifts for personal business?

    omg when you cry bigotry every time it detracts from actual cases of bigotry.

    if it was an actual case of bigotry, they wouldnt have bought the ad time in the first place. they only pulled it because it turned into a shit storm, and they didnt want to be involved in it.

    and why should hertz pay people to pray? if you do that for any other reason its called payroll fraud.

    They are a business that exists to make money, they don't care how you feel.

    Dont buy anything at lowes!! Boycott them!! Show them by voting with your wallet. It is a time honored american tradition of non violent protest and it works.

    In cases like this, they're probably in a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation, if they had a huge number of anti-muslim groups threatening not to use their stores, it could hurt them just as bad if those who feel their reaction to the other group's boycott.

    Like I said, Damned if you do, Damned if you don't.
