According to a spokesperson for the hotel chain, they asked that their ads be removed from rotation during the controversy, but added they do not have a side in the dispute.

"This is an issue between CBS and the Governor and her family. As part of our ongoing advertising buy, we have ads that appear on a rotation through hundreds of Web sites, including CBS.com at times. These ads should not be viewed as an endorsement of either side of the issue," the rep said in a statement. "When a number of our guests complained about advertisements on CBS.com, we temporarily removed the ads from our rotation rather than become part of the controversy. This action should not be viewed as an endorsement of either side, but rather a desire to let the parties resolve the issue independently."
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, the "Late Show" host created a stir when he made a joke about what he thought was Sarah Palin's 18-year-old daughter, Bristol, being "knocked-up" by New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez. Governor Palin thought the joke referred to her 14-year-old daughter, Willow.
Letterman has since apologized for the barb.
"I'm sorry about it, and I'll try to do better in the future," he said.
