Magerko helped develop 84 Lumber's 2017 Super Bowl commercial, which stirred controversy before airing for featuring a border wall separating a mother and child from presumed freedom, following their visibly arduous journey to it. The wall was deemed too political by Fox and so was edited out for broadcast, effectively censoring the ad. The Washington Times reported that she "says she’s a staunch supporter of President Trump and his proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall" and that "Mrs. Magerko said she personally helped develop the commercial but said her politics had nothing to do with its message."
