Dr. Martens drops Kurt Cobain, dead rockers ad

The head of Dr. Martens has apologized to Courtney Love and yanked an ad featuring her late husband Kurt Cobain after Love put her foot down over the shoe company's latest British ad.

In the ad that Love complained about, Cobain is sitting on a cloud wearing all white and a pair of black Dr. Martens. 

The shoe company says they also canned the ad agency that came up with the dead rock icons campaign that also incuded Six Vicious of the Sex Pistols, Joe Strummer of the Clash and Joey Ramone of the Ramones.

"Dr. Martens is very sorry for any offense that has been caused by the publication of images showing dead rock icons wearing Dr. Martens boots," the company said in a statement to E! Online. "Dr. Martens did not commission the work as it runs counter to our current marketing activities based on FREEDM, which is dedicated to nurturing grass roots creativity and supporting emerging talent.

"As a consequence, Dr Martens has terminated its relationship with the responsible agency."

I guess you just don't want to fuck with Courtney Love.
