Brad Pitt has waded into the Gulf oil spill controversy with an extraordinary veiled attack on BP.

The Hollywood actor said he would consider the death penalty for those to blame for the ruptured well that gushed millions of gallons of oil into the ocean.

He was speaking in a documentary due to be screened in the US tomorrow tonight.

"The Hollywood actor said he would consider the death penalty for those to blame for the ruptured well that gushed millions of gallons of oil into the ocean."

Perhaps we can institute the death penalty for Hollywood and media divas who spout millions of gallons of hot air, venom and blithering idiocy?

/sarc....I think...

I have never understood why someone who makes a living pretending to be someone he/she isn’t, speaking dialog that was written by someone else, etc., feels that skill set gives them moral authority to issue proclamations on the issues of the day.

Don’t get me wrong. I recognize that acting is a worthy craft and actors and actresses who are good at what they do fill a need in society, but so do accountants and garbage collectors — neither of which get asked for their views very often.

I’ve always thought that the death penalty for leftwing, Hollyweird kooks would be a good idea but I’m a little weird myself.

It seems that Pitt has always been odd. I read years ago that he seldom showered. This was before he married Aniston. I think “Hollyweird” is an apt label for the town of freaks.

I’m no fan of British Petroleum. But if he wants to be a “real” liberal, at least propose more regulation and oversight... Blah blah blah..

Typical leftist liberal. No death penalty for violent criminals like serial killers, but it is ok for those who violate their favored liberal political cause.

I’m glad to see that Brad has not taken any options off the table. It sounds like he is ready and willing to make whatever decision is best. That’s why we elected him, right?

You’re way too logical!

The reason they do is because their egos are inflated beyond recognition by the thousands of silly, shallow, adoring fans. And when you add to that “serious” reporters asking them to comment about political issues, it’s impossible for them to not let their adoring fans know how they “feel”.

Very close.

The oil itself is no big deal, it could have been skimmed, and even left alone it would have been minimal compared to the screaming about it.

Corexit, the dispersant that was mixed with it, is different.

Corexit in the Gulf may well be the most destructive thing human beings ever did to their environment. There is no way to stop it, and it kills everything it touches.

Everything.

For Corexit, heads should indeed roll - after being made to talk.

Hmmmm. Death penalty for oil company CEO’s but not for cop killers, serial child rapists, and mass murders. Yeah, Brad, that makes sense.

In a sense I agree, not because of the spill but because lives were lost and if corners were cut you could make a case.

If this had been an act of Islamic terrorism, would he have continued to be against the death penalty?

Talented actors, and he is a talented actor, are at their best when they are reciting lines that other people thought up. They tend to look like idiots when they have to come up with their own material.

HOw far down the ladder would you go, Brad?
CEO? He was probably never included in any talks about these shortcuts.....but hey! let’s off him anyway....”he offended by saying he just wanted his life back, elitist snob! Maybe his staff? They probably knew more about it than he did.
Oh! and let’s make sure we have Blago’s’ US Attorney try the case......He would probably accuse the stockholders and try to kill them.

The well was not ruptured deliberately but the Obama administration dragged their heels to permit action on the spill. There was not a shortage of available skimmers. The Feds would not approve action the governor of Louisiana requested.
