Aussie Woman Kicked Out of Church Over ED Ad
The star of an erectile dysfunction commercial in Australia was kicked out of her church until the ad comes off air, the Herald Sun reported today.
Libby Ashby told Melbourne-based radio station 3AW she had been "disfellowshipped" from her local congregation after appearing in the ad.
"They have said I would not be reinstated until the ad comes off the air," Ashby said, while not identifying which church she attends.
Ashby, a single mother, said she knew when she was filming the AMI ad that it was in poor taste.
But she said she had taken the job because of the money.
"My VISA was calling out for mercy," she said.
"It was against my better judgment to it. I don't like to offend people."
