Brad Pitt wants you to know in BP’s case the death penalty is just fine.
Brad Pitt wants you to know he cares more about the lives of wildlife than he does the lives on BP execs; and would reconsider his feelings on the death penalty just for the schmucks behind the BP oil disaster to get what he believes they deserve.
In an interview for Spike Lee’s new documentary, If God is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise, in which Pitt participates, he says about Tony Hayward and his cohorts,
Huffington Post: “I was never for the death penalty before; I am willing to look at it again.”
The film, which premieres tonight on HBO, is a follow up to Lee’s 2006 docudrama, When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts.
USA Today: At its core, If God Is Willing examines the frustrations and snail-paced comeback of lower and middle-class New Orleans residents trying to rebuild their lives — or merely survive — five years after Katrina. Hampered by politics, corporate interests and infighting over efforts to rebuild schools, health care and housing, it’s a struggle for many.
Personally, I think the execs should be tarred and feathered and made to walk around all day, every day, without the ability to shed their “new skin” for as many days as it took to cap the spill.
I wonder how many times Tony Hayward will lament his now-infamous “I just want my life back,” catch phrase that he so foolishly admitted at the beginning of the disaster.
Because frankly Tony, we want our life back too…
