Aussie supermarket chain Coles pulls advertising from Alan Jones' station after Jacinda Ardern comments

Aussie supermarket Coles will no longer advertise on radio station 2GB, which runs Alan Jones' show, after his comments about Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

"We stopped advertising on the Alan Jones program on Friday 16 August and have subsequently stopped advertising on 2GB," a Coles spokesperson told The Australian on Friday.

On August 15, Jones called Ardern a "joke."

He also said Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison should "shove a sock down her throat" and get tough with a "few backhanders."

The company which owns 2GB, Maquarie Media, threatened to fire Jones for his comments.

Jones admitted his comments were "clumsily presented" and "gormless" and said he has written to Ardern to apologise.

Last week he refused to comment on the controversy, but said he was the target of a "vicious" social media campaign.

Coles is the most recent of a long line of companies which have pulled their advertising from the show. 

Anytime Fitness, Hyundai, Accor Hotels, Chemist Warehouse, and Nick Scali Furniture are all refusing to advertise for the broadcaster.
