Atlanta Hawks launch "Ashley Madison" promotional campaign

The recent Ashley Madison site hack led to panic and in some cases, ruin, as would-be cheaters had their identities exposed.

State Rep. Allen Peake, R-Macon, said he'd be "taking some time” to evaluate his status as a House member after he admitted to opening an account years ago during a "difficult period" in his marriage.

Embattled reality show personality Josh Duggar issued a statement saying "I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him," after his account became public.


A San Antonio, Tex. police chief committed suicide after his account was exposed. A New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary professor and pastor took his life after his account was exposed.

Toronto police service staff superintendent Bryce Evans recently announced that two suicides there are believed to be connected to the Ashley Madison hack.

Now the Atlanta Hawks have launched a light-hearted Ashley Madison promotion.

"The Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club announced today that they have signed three real-life people named Ashley Madison to promote the team’s new 10-game flex plans. Fans are encouraged to start a new love affair with the team by customizing their own unique ticket plan to ensure they are at all of the top games during the 2015-16 season and receive the best selection of games, seats and pricing."The three Ashley Madisons are all Georgia residents, comprised of two females and one male."
