You may have seen the deplorable advertisement that portrays truck drivers as serial killers. 

 

After phone calls and e-mails, Maxim magazine offered to replace the ad in their digital editions with a positive, pro-trucking industry ad, and offering to place a similar ad in the print edition of next month's magazine.

 

In a statement, Maxim said the ad "does not reflect the beliefs or opinions of the people at this magazine" and committed to "taking aggressive action to remove the aforesaid advertisement. To illustrate, the ad has been removed from its digital copy and is being replaced with facts about truckers and the trucking industry. Maxim will find many avenues to continue supporting the industry."
