Ric Flair’s CarShield advertising campaign being paused due to allegations
As previously noted, a new Vice TV Dark Side of the Ring episode premiered which featured the WWE’s “Plane Ride from Hell” in 2002. One of the stories from the episode involved Ric Flair allegedly exposing himself to an attendant during the flight and making unwanted advances.
The episode has seemingly led to consequences in regards to Flair’s CarShield commercials. A spokesperson for Intermedia, the advertising agency which handles the commercials, gave the following statement to PWInsider.com…
“We take these matters very seriously. As of right now, we are pausing the campaign and we will do our due diligence.”
It was also noted by Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com that “there is currently no timetable for the spots to return to the airwaves and that the commercial will soon disappear pending additional investigation and decisions.”
