Days after LAist said that Doc Martens should have its ass kicked for approving a new ad campaign depicting four punk icons in Heaven wearing nothing but sheets and the famous combat boots, the shoe manufacturer claimed no responsibility, and infact severed ties with the famous ad agency.

In a statement released today and emailed directly to LAist, Doc Martens' PR reps, Exposure, explains that Saatchi is to blame and the ads are as dead as the artists they tried to exploit.
