Toronto Argonauts Sorry for Ad Endorsing Domestic Violence

The Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League opened their season with an ad that endorses domestic violence, at least according to city councilor Mike Layton. In his letter to Argonauts president Bob Nicholson, Layton claims the ad, which has the headline "Home is where the heart is. It's also where we hurt people," could upset survivors of domestic violence. Which is a fair point. "We didn't look at it in the context of domestic violence, and we probably should have, given that we've had a handful of complaints," says David Bedford, the team's vp of marketing and communications. Yeah, not the best start for the Argonauts. If they keep screwing up like this, they'll have to change their name to the Buffalo Bills. Full ad after the jump. Via Work That Matters.
