General Motors has decided to pull its ad dollars out of the long running reality TV show Survivor. The automaker has supported Survivor since it began airing over 12 seasons ago. GM made the decision to get off the island about three months ago and claims it has nothing to do with the controversy surrounding the show's upcoming 13th season. Survivor: Cook Islands will have contestants divided by race into teams, which is obviously drawing the ire of many a social activist. A GM spokesperson, however, told Automotive News that it was difficult to integrate the company's products into a show that is set on an island. This is true, this is true – not many E85 compatible Tahoes on a deserted island.
