No End To Pepsi Lies
by [email protected]

For some months, Pepsi has been sending letters to people who were calling or writing to express their anger and disgust over Pepsi's sponsorship of horrifically cruel bullfighting. Pepsi's propaganda claimed that Pepsi had removed ads from one bullring, in Puebla, Mexico.

The letter implied that the Puebla bullring was the only bullring where Pepsi ads could be found. In fact, SHARK documented Pepsi ads in bullrings at numerous Mexican bullrings, and documentation has since arrived of Pepsi ads in Spanish bullrings also.

Last week's SHARK-alert reported that a SHARK team again visited the Puebla bullring. The team reported that while the Pepsi signs and banners were gone, Pepsi's presence remained through cups and people serving Pepsi in Pepsi uniforms.

What the team didn't mention over the phone became obvious through pictures which we have now received, and it shows even more clearly the sleazy, lying nature of Pepsi.

The pictures from the Puebla bullring shows that ALL ads have been removed from the bullring. Not just Pepsi ads, but all ads! Gone are the phone ads, and beer ads and resort ads -- all ads are gone from the Puebla bullring!

What this means is that Pepsi had NOTHING to do with removing its ads from the Puebla bullring. In fact, Pepsi saw to it that once its dozens of ads were taken down by the bullring owner, Pepsi maintained its presence through uniforms and thousands of Pepsi cups.

Please, especially if you haven't done so in the last week, call Pepsi (800-433-2652) and tell them what you think of their unending lies and sponsorship of cruelty.

SHARK has fought a lot of animal abusers in the last ten years, but Pepsi has shown itself to be the very lowest of the low, with no redeeming or truthful features whatsoever.
