LensCrafters To Michele Bachmann: Stop Using Our Name
LensCrafters was none too pleased when presidential wannabe Michele Bachmann referred to Planned Parenthood as “the LensCrafters of big abortion.” Bachmann was trying to prove that Planned Parenthood is a one-stop shopping center for any woman wanting an abortion.
But LensCrafters didn’t like the comparison. A company spokeswoman tells [Roll Call] that it contacted Bachmann’s office Tuesday asking that she stop using its name. “She’s using our name without our knowledge or permission,” says Julie Maslov, communications director for Luxottica Retail, LensCrafters’ parent company.
She didn’t cite any legalese but rather says that the request was made “in the spirit of the fact that we have nothing to do with these parties or the debate.”Click here for reuse options!
