Hayward, take your ads and go home
Meantime, stop spending your millions to spread your unctuous, ill-timed, ill-conceived advertising all over my TV and newspapers. Get off American television and out of America’s face and go back to England where, maybe, they still like you. We don’t want you and your utterly worthless apologies here. Give your ad money to the Louisiana fishermen whose livelihoods you’ve ruined. Give it to the families of the men who died when the Deepwater Horizon blew up. Give it to the environmental groups who are struggling to save dying wildlife in the marshlands you’ve destroyed, or to the resort owners whose beaches and businesses you’ve ruined. Stand — no, kneel — on the street in Venice, Louisiana, and hand out cash.
Every time your insensitive, self-serving ad comes on, I get angry all over again. BP has caused the worst environmental disaster in this nation’s history and ads were the best thing you could think of to do with $50 million!?
