GoDaddy Pulls Controversial Puppy Commercial Amid Backlash
GoDaddy has decided to pull its controversial puppy commercial, after critics argue it glorifies bad breeding practices and puppy mills.By Mikah Sargent | January 28, 2015
By the looks of the commercial we're about to show you, you might venture to guess it's a heartwarming Super Bowl advertisement. And you'd be wrong.
Buddy the Golden Retriever falls off the back of a truck. But look! He travels for miles — even through the pouring rain — before his triumphant return home. Cute? Yes. Inspiring? Sure. But not for long.
"Look it's Buddy! I'm so glad you made it home ... because I just sold you on this website i built with GoDaddy. Ship him out," said the woman in the GoDaddy commercial.
