Sheen's Visa Ads Pulled Because of Stance on War?

"Visa was running the Sheen ads with the Yao Ming ads," a television network executive said. "But last week, they pulled Sheen's ad right after all the hullabaloo over his [anti-war] remarks hit the press. Yao Ming's are still running."

Of course Visa denies that saying, "After airing for more than four months, the Visa USA television commercial featuring Martin and Charlie Sheen concluded its run on March 11," a statement from Visa read. "As with many Visa commercials, this spot aired for a specific period of time, and is now being rotated out of the advertising lineup."

Sure, we believe that.
