Sandra Bullock Wants Off Gulf Coast PSA

by at . Comments

Sandra Bullock is demanding that Gulf Coast restoration activists erase footage of her from a recent PSA because of its links to ... the oil and gas industry.

The star learned that the Be the One video, created by Women of the Storm's Restore the Gulf campaign, is sponsored by America's Wetland Foundation.

That group has taken money from various oil companies, including BP.

The PSA features stars such as Bullock, Blake Lively, Dave Matthews and Lenny Kravitz lobbying viewers to sign a petition asking President Obama and Congress to pass legislation to restore wetlands and protect it "for me and future generations."

But Bullock reconsidered her participation after a report by DeSmogBlog, which called America's Wetland a front for oil companies. Are the oil companies just trying to make good? Or scheming to get taxpayers to pay for cleanup instead of them?

Either way, "We have immediately asked for [Bullock's] participation to be removed until the facts be determined," says her spokeswoman. Here's the PSA:

It's GREAT that Sandra cares about things that REALLY matter...she's a smart lady! And she does own property near the Gulf=massive disaster zone! That said, I can't wait for her next blockbuster movie!

I guess that oil companies are all evil and run by men who hate children and puppy dogs. For all of the fuel that Sandra Bullock's private jet consumes she sure has a lot of hatred towards the oil companies. PS - Of course taxpayers will have to pay to help out with this disaster, however, it is ridiculous to think that BP is going to just leave everything for the taxpayers to pay for.
