A sagging athletic company can hardly afford to upset Americans by picking an actress who blamed 9/11 on America and said we deserved it. But leave it to Reebok. They picked her. Yup, I came across this ad, featuring Maggie Gyllenhaal, who, as I’ve noted on this site several times, said:
Because I think America has done reprehensible things and is responsible in some way.
First, a 9/11 movie about the victims, then American Airlines and its in-flight magazine, now Reebok. Is there anyone who won’t ignore Maggie Gyllenhaal’s outrageous comments and take her to task for them? The ad says, “I Am What I Am,” which in this case is an America hater. That’s exactly what she is.
Because I think Reebok has done reprehensible things by hiring this wretched woman as a spokeswoman and is irresponsible in many ways.
Looks like they’ve airbrushed out her absurd statement along with the massive airbrushing out of her homeliness in this silly ad.
Since Reebok chose this woman, we can only assume the company agrees with her statement about America and 9/11. If it does not, it wouldn’t have–and shouldn’t have–hired her.
