Wow. I am shocked. But the question is... is that really the official Allstate account?

I can't find it on the page. Maybe the image is fake?

It is not fake, you just have to get rid of all the comments by people other than the official Mayhem posts. Then it is the second post from the top.

I will never use Allstate insurance. On top of their views against cyclists, they don't pay out claims when drivers insured by them hit you.

Allstate will not be getting any of my money. Oh, and look at the wonderful comments by some of their great customers! Isn't that special.

if i worked for allstate, i'd accidentally delete the coverage of all 5,000 people who responded and forget to tell them.

it's pretty disgusting that people are that inconsiderate, or even supportive of hitting cyclists with cars. not to mention the insurance company to incite such responses.

wow

I'm complaining to Allstate that their Facebook public figure "Mayhem", whether affiliated with Allstate or not, is encouraging violence/harassment against cyclists.

You guys should write to Allstate as well.

Wow, that really is in poor taste. F&%K Allstate. I just got done sending an e-mail to Allstate in addition to commenting on the mayhem fb post and Allstates fb page.

Like I told my Allstate agent many years back "Every time I deal with you bastards I have to wear a Kevlar chastity belt and you still screwed me through the leg opening." No more Allstate for me.

yep. got their stock copy & paste response.

We have completed our investigation and would like to provide you a summary.

Please allow me to sincerely apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced. Thank you for contacting Allstate about our television advertising. At Allstate, we value all the comments we receive, both positive and negative. We believe that everyone deserves an individual response and we would like to respond to your concern.

We appreciate the comments you provided about our new “Mr. Mayhem” advertising. While we try hard to create advertisements that appeal to everyone, unfortunately there are times when some people do not like our commercials. We’re sorry you found this to be the case.

We are using the “Mr. Mayhem” character to illustrate – in an “over-the-top”, humorous way – the potential dangers and threats people face every day. Mayhem is an unconventional teacher, whose objective is to get consumers to consider the protection they need. “Mr. Mayhem” is not a person, yet he personifies many of the uncertainties that Allstate helps protect people against – reminding people why they need the right insurance. Customers are at the center of everything we do, and these new ads are designed to ensure consumers are aware of the dangers and have the right insurance to be adequately protected.

Please know that we take all feedback very seriously and very much appreciate your comments. As is our practice, we are using your comments to make modifications to our commercials. Thank you so much for contacting Allstate and sharing your thoughts with us.

I’m going to close your file for now but please reply to this e-mail at your earliest convenience if you have any questions. I can be reached between the hours of 8:30 and 4:00 Eastern Standard Time.

Best Regards,

Lisa CRS135

Go check it out, you should know what kind of sh*thole company Allstate is. This does not surprise me, they always have been crap.
