Monsanto is responsible for a lot of pain and suffering in this world said the actor Mark Ruffalo to Monsanto’s CEO, Hugh Grant!
Mark Ruffalo knew he had to speak out for millions of people when he had the opportunity to encounter Monsanto’s CEO. It’s not easy to meet the head of Monsanto, and the actor did what many would like to do: he expressed his concerns about GMOs, pesticides, and herbicides.
Before a segment for the movie Spotlight with Mike Rezendez, Ruffalo was in the green room watching Grant on screen giving “slippery non-answer[s] to every question he was asked.”
Ruffalo said he felt disgusted seeing the “guy who is responsible for so much misery and sickness throughout the world slime his way through his interview.” So when Grant went through the green room, he simply said to Hugh Grant this: “You are wrong. You are engaged in monopolizing food. You are poisoning people. You are killing small farms. You are killing bees. What you are doing is dead wrong.” Unfortunately, Grant responded through his eyes and not his words. The company is doing big things around the world. It’s evident that Grant believes that because they are big, they are also good. Otherwise, he would not be the CEO of Monsanto. But nothing could be further from the truth.
Mark had the chance to contemplate the evil of Monsanto and outline the written piece he would soon share with EcoWatch.
The knowledgeable activist knows that when people get paid a lot of money like what Grant gets paid, their thinking becomes clouded and the first thing to go is their morality. It’s unfortunate, but it’s time for the public to become aware of how greed can change the innate, humble nature of most people.
“Hugh, it’s not your messaging that makes you and your company horrible. It’s the horrible stuff you guys do that makes you and your company horrible. People don’t walk around making horrible stories up about good companies because they got nothing else better to do with their time. People like you and your company are horrible because … you are horrible. No matter how much jumping around you do on morning shows (where no one can really nail you down for the horrible stuff you do), you will still always be horrible, and people will always greet you the way I did, when you go around trying to cover up the fact that you are horrible,” wrote Ruffalo.
The famous actor backed up his claims with facts in the article below so that he could raise more awareness about the biotech company and the damage they are doing.
