Actor Brad Pitt has some harsh words for those responsible for the oil spill which continues to devastate the gulf coast. Though he has previously spoken out against the death penalty, Brad said he is now, “willing to look at it again,” after witnessing the destruction of his adopted hometown at the hands of BP.
In ‘If God Is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise,’ a documentary film by Spike Lee set to mark the fifth anniversary of hurricane Katrina, the cause conscious actor has said that high ranking BP oil executives should possibly pay the ultimate price for the Gulf Oil disaster.
Brad is featured in the documentary because his ‘Make It Right’ initiative has helped to build affordable and sustainable homes in New Orleans, specifically in the Lower Ninth Ward, which was one of the hardest neighborhoods hit by the disaster.
Initially Spike’s film was going to end on a positive note – with the New Orleans Saint’s Super Bowl victory, however, when the Gulf of Mexico oil spill happened in April, the director said that the disaster forced him to “rethink and reconfigure” the film’s ending.
Spike Lee’s ‘If God Is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise’ premiers tonight (Monday) on HBO.
