Lee And Dan Apologize For VW Suicide Ad

Lee and Dan now have last names. They are Brooks and Ford respectively and they have formally apologized to VW for the creation of the Suicide Bomber ad in which a Middle Eastern looking man blows himself up inside a VW Polo. VW received sworn statements from the two acknowledging their involvement in the creation of the ad along with this statement, "The creators regret the distribution of the film, will not publicize it further and apologize unreservedly for the damage caused to Volkswagen." VW has dropped legal action toward the two.

OK, good. Next?

Actually I was shocked when I receive VW Polo suicide bomber Adv. I am Palestinian, and I am sorry to say that this adv has reflected a bad image about VW company. It is unethical to use a symbol of Palestinian resistance as a silly joke. finally, I want to say to Lee & Dan that it is worther to apologize to Palestinians fot this sick adv before you apologize for VW Polo damage.

Thank you alot,
