More major companies have announced they are pulling their commercials from “The O’Reilly Factor” following reports that the the show’s host, Bill O’Reilly, paid $13 million in settlements to five women who accused him of sexual harassment.

As of Wednesday afternoon, nearly 40 companies had made the call to pull their ads from the Fox prime-time cable program, according to a report by NBC and a list being documented by the organization The Sleeping Giants.

Jenny Craig, Subaru, Ancestry, Mercedes-Benz, Hyundai, BMW of North America, Mitsubishi Motors, Lexus, Constant Contact, Bayer, Ainsworth Pet Nutrition, Orkin, UNTUCKit, Allstate, Esurance, T. Rowe Price, GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi, Credit Karma, Wayfair, TrueCar, the Society for Human Resource Management and The Wonderful Company all pulled ads from the program, NBC reported.

And more are coming as we report:

O’Reilly did not address the report on his Monday night program, but in a statement over the weekend he said the settlements were made “to put to rest any controversies to spare my children.”

The only company that has announced it is STICKING WITH O’Reilly is Angie’s List. In a statement, Angie’s List said:

“We do not have plans to change our ad buy. The advertising strategy we have long used at Angie’s List is meant to reach as many people as possible with news that our service exists and is available to them. We place ads across a wide spectrum of venues intending to reach as many viewers/listeners/ readers as possible without taking a position on the viewpoints of the venues themselves. Just as we trust members to make their own hiring decisions, we trust them to make their own media consumption decisions.”
