Rochester, N.Y. – Wegmans has released a statement saying it will run the Alec Baldwin commercials again, effective immediately.
Wegmans Statement Below:
”We regret ending the Alec Baldwin holiday commercials one week earlier than planned in response to a couple of dozen complaints. We have decided to run the commercials again, effective immediately.
“Clearly, many more people support Alec, as evidenced by the hundreds and hundreds of tweets, emails, and phone calls we have received. We enjoyed working with Alec Baldwin and his mom, Carol, and would do it again. We appreciate all the kind things they have said about Wegmans and respect the good work they do for communities.”
Baldwin was kicked off an American Airlines flight last month after he refused to turn off a device on which he was playing “Words With Friends.” The airline said Baldwin was extremely rude to the crew.
Wegmans said customers began complaining about the ads after the American Airlines incident.
