"I don't know why Obama ever trusted these BP guys! They would lie to their mothers.”
Here’s more from Lee:
"[Former BP president Tony] Hayward does not give a [bleep]. The thing we don't talk about is that 11 Americans lost their lives and it took seven weeks to invite their families to the White House. I'm not trying to bash my man, but that's a long time."
Also from Lee:
"If this oil spill would have reached the Hamptons, Martha's Vineyard, Cape Cod, that [bleep] would have been fixed."
Lee recently finished his documentary If God Is Willing And Da Creek Don’t Rise, but due to the oil spill, he’s decided to continue editing the the doc, which is a follow-up to his Hurricane Katrina doc When The Levees Broke.
If this is true, then we stand behind her decision 100%! That would be so fucked up!
Sandra Bullock is reportedly demanding to be removed from a PSA for Gulf restoration she appears in because the organization behind it may actually be taking money from oil companies!
The PSA (above), called Be The One, was put together by Women of the Storm's Restore the Gulf campaign, which is sponsored by the American Wetland Foundation. That group has allegedly taken money from oil and gas companies - INCLUDING BP!
Her publicist, Cheryl Maisel, claims:
"Ms. Bullock was originally contacted through her attorney to be a part of the PSA in order to promote awareness of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. At no time was she made aware that any organization, oil company or otherwise had influence over Women of the Storm or its message. We have immediately asked for [Bullock's] participation in the PSA be removed until the facts be determined."
The organization, however, denies these claims, and have asked to meet with Bullock to explain the matter.
They've also reached out to others featured in the PSA, including Lenny Kravitz, Blake Lively, and Dave Matthews, so no one else will attempt to pull out!
Founder Anne Milling explains:
"I was shocked and of course very disappointed. However, I do believe that once Ms. Bullock hears and listens to the facts and understands that Women of the Storm has had no connection or taken money from oil companies, I think that will allay her fears and I believe she will rejoin our video because she really believes in coastal restoration. She is committed to that."
We hope that she's telling the truth, and this matter can be resolved!
It would be such a shame to have what appears to be a good cause be tainted like this!
"I'm not even sure what to say. I'm more shocked by this than anyone. Sadly, our media doesn't subscribe to 'innocent until proven.' I truly am prayerfully optimistic in our justice system and will fight this with all that I am. Thank you to those who continue to believe in me. I am the guy that you think that I am."
The 54-year-old explained that he's turning to religion following his arrest, adding:
