The company apologized to its customers for making what they say was a bad choice.
Fonuts creators Nancy Truman and Thom Furtado put the message out on Instagram.
“We apologize for our recent poor choice of promotional partner. We were shocked and dismayed to learn about who we were associating with.
We recognize we really made a mistake by not properly researching them. We have ended our partnership with Jinger Vuolo and the company that introduced us. We would like you all to know, we promise to be more diligent in the future and will only work with people who truly represent our core values of kindness, inclusivity and transparency. We are so sorry, and we really hope you will forgive us for this mistake.”
People who support Fonuts have spoken out online about Duggar and what they say are her and the Duggar family’s bigoted behaviors and homophobia.
“[She] and her family preach against people different than them while their closets are full of skeletons,” said one person, and continued:
“Thank you for doing the right thing. Mistakes happen, and it’s great that you decided to stick to your values even if there is some backlash. Whenever I visit L.A., you’ll be my first stop.”
Duggar family supporters are sticking with them, calling the contract snafu “ridiculous.”
And Jim Bob Duggar didn’t report the molestation until more than a year after the incidents happened.
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have defended Josh in the past, which isn’t helping matters.
Then there’s that whole Homeland Security thing, where the Duggars were allegedly being investigated, though we’re still not sure why.
This all adds up to bad publicity for Fonuts, though it seems hard to believe they didn’t know about all this before they started their partnership with Vuolo.
