Quip toothbrushes said it will no longer advertise on any of Shapiro’s programming, saying it disagreed with having its ad read at the anti-abortion rally, HuffPost reported.

“Our mission is to make good oral health more accessible to everyone, and podcast advertising is one way we’re able to realize this,” Quip said in a statement reported by HuffPost.

“However, following one of our ads being read in a venue we did not endorse, we have chosen to discontinue our advertising relationship with this show. We are also taking steps to ensure all of our advertising partners are aligned with our oral health mission and values.”

Shapiro garnered widespread attention online Friday after saying during his appearance at the rally that “no pro-life person would kill baby Hitler" because "baby Hitler was a baby.”


Shapiro, 35, has a large following – particularly among young conservatives.
