This week Flush Rush vols caught an ad for a June concert with the Kansas City Symphony and pianist Ben Folds airing on the controversial Rush Limbaugh Show in KC.

The Kansas City Symphony was unresponsive, so #stoprush Twitter activists reached out to Folds on social media:

Folds promised to look into it:

Today Folds' manager Sharon Corbitt-House notified StopRush that the ad would be removed from Limbaugh's program.  

Included in her email was a thread from an unidentified party which read:


This is scary as hell!

Corbitt-House's message is below:
Thank you for your email and thank you for bringing this to our attention. We have asked our agent to reach out to the promoter in KC to ask them to pull the BF/KC Symphony ads from the Rush Limbaugh show. Thanks

Thanks again,

Decent folks who believe in tolerance and equality are no longer powerless against Rush Limbaugh's efforts to spread intolerance on the radio.  StopRush is making a major impact by convincing advertisers on this show to withdraw their ads--and with your help we can do even more.  Just a few emails, tweets, or Facebook messages a week to Limbaugh's advertisers can go a long way toward making hatred less profitable.  It is our collective voice that makes us strong.
