Home Depot Hit Hard by Beer Yeti Boycott

October 30, 2009

The response to The Beer Yeti’s call for a boycott against The Home Depot has been overwhelming. A wave of anger over the marketing of “Sasquatch the Garden Yeti” has been sweeping like a tsunami of justice through the greater cryptozoological liberation activist community.

Hopefully this anger will quickly be turned into reconciliation when The Home Depot takes the necessary steps to remove the offensive statue from their inventory.

In the meantime, The Beer yeti Boycott is taking a huge toll on the home improvement giant’s financial well-being. Third quarter profits were already significantly down from 2008 when the numbers were released in August. Now the boycott seems to be driving down hopes of a rallying third quarter.

Just view the chart below. After our boycott was announced on September 22, share prices plummeted from 28.14 down to 26.85 a short three days later. Since then, share prices have dropped even further, hitting 25.21 yesterday.

Wall Street is clearly on board with the aims of the greater cryptozoological research community boycott, but is The Home Depot?

Sadly, no.

As of today, “Sasquatch the Garden Yeti” is still available for purchase on The Home Depot website.

It grieves us to see such a fine company subject themselves to fiscal devastation because they are too proud to remove an objectifying, exploitative garden statue.

  1. Of course, Home Depot ought to pull that exploitive likeness from their shelves (and issue a recall, and offer a broadly reparative compensation regime) because it is a moral offense, however these corporate elite types are only interested in their profits, so they are no doubt going to have to address the Beer Yeti boycott soon.


  2. I recently purchased a house and of course I needed several thousand dollars of appliances and supplies do you want to know where I bought them. Lowes
