Peter Fonda, producer of a documentary that focuses on the environmental consequences of the BP oil spill, had some harsh words for President Barack Obama.
While at the Cannes Film Festival with his documentary, The Big Fix, the Easy Rider shared his outrage over Obama's handling of the worst oil spill in American history, saying:
"I sent an email to President Obama saying, 'You are a f(expletive) traitor,' using those words… 'You're a traitor, you allowed foreign boots on our soil telling our military — in this case the coastguard — what they can and could not do, and telling us, the citizens of the United States, what we could or could not do'."
He's referring to BP, whose headquarters is in London, as the "foreign boots" and does not have kind words for the company he calls "a bunch of Brits". At a press conference for his film, he continued to say:
"I thought we kicked them out a long time ago. They tried to get back in in 1812, but they didn't make it."
Peter sent the email to the White House last week and we're curious if he'll get a response!
Do U think Peter's criticism of Obama is justified?
