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
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.
