You may have heard that the Dutch beer behemoth Heineken found itself in a bit of trouble recently. Seems their promotional banners were photographed on display at a dog fight in Asia. Maybe Mongolia. And the photo was from last year, but it’s getting traction now.
Now, I’ve read some of these stories and the company explains that the banners were there from an event the night before. Wonder why they don’t say what the “event” was? If it wasn’t dog fighting, then why not just say so?
What do you think? Did Heineken know that the venue was being used for dog fights? Or didn’t they?
What You Learned Today:
- Sometimes things you see on the Internet are true. Sometimes they’re not.
- Heineken promotional banners are clearly visible in a building where dog fighting takes place. (Or are they? Is it a bit of some not-so-fun-foto-fabrication?)
- Do you wonder if Heineken is telling the truth?
- Better yet, do you wonder why people like dog fighting?
- I’d like to deprive their kids of life’s basics, teach them to fight and kill, and throw them into a ring at the same place and see how they like that.
