Craigslist Pulls The Remaining Four Loko Ads From Its Site
Looks like the final nail has been put in Four Loko’s coffin.
It will be hard to find Four Loko and other banned caffeinated alcoholic drinks for sale on Craigslist anymore, state Sen. Jeff Klein said.
The popular online trading post pulled the few remaining ads for such beverages, according to a letter it sent to the senator dated Jan. 11, responding to his request.
“I applaud craigslist for doing the right thing,” said Klein (D-Bronx/Westchester). “Their decision to remove ads for these dangerous drinks goes a long way in helping save our teens from potentially devastating consequences to their health and their lives.”
There were seven ads for Four Loko pulled nationwide, including two in New York State, the website told Klein.
Craigslist also searched for ads for other caffeinated alcoholic beverages, such as Moonshot, Joose and Core High Gravity, but did not find any among its millions of pages, the website said.
We at Bossip have never had a sip of the drink that has all these kids going ham, but we’re down for it’s removal from stores if it’s gonna have people dying. Who the hell needs all that caffeine and alcohol anyway!?!?
Have you ever had a Four Loko? Do you feel its unfair to have it removed??
