Sounds like Groupon might have learned its lesson from the fallout from its culturally insensitive Superbowl ads.

In reaction to an online petition urging the group-buying site not to sponsor The Apprentice -- and therefore give the impression of being sympatico with host Donald Trump's political views -- spokeswoman Julie Mossler posted a statement on the site's blog:  

Enough consumers have contacted us to warrant ensuring that we don’t place ads on the Apprentice homepage in the future…this isn’t a political statement, it’s avoiding intentionally upsetting a segment of our customers. 

Could it be Groupon is growing up?
