Not every day you can meet the head of Monsanto. This is the reason why actor Mark Ruffalo knew he had to take advantage of the certain opportunity and speak out for millions when he addressed the company’s CEO, Hugh Grant.
Before a piece for the movie Spotlight with Mike Rezendez, Ruffalo was in the green room observing Grant on screen giving “slippery non-answer[s] to every question he was asked.”
Ruffalo said that he was disgusted watching the “guy who is responsible for so much misery and sickness throughout the world slime his way through his interview.” This is the reason why when Grant came through the green room, he told him this:
“You are wrong and engaged in monopolizing food. You are poisoning people and killing small farms and bees. What you are doing is dead wrong.”
Grant didn’t hold his breath. He immediately responded: “Well, what I think we are doing is good.”
Mark had the opportunity to anticipate the evil of Monsanto and plan the written piece he would soon share with EcoWatch.
When people are getting the amount of money that Grant gets, their thinking is becoming extremely clouded. On this way their morality is the very first thing that goes away. It’s miserable, but it’s time that the public becomes aware of how toxic greed can be to innate humble nature.
“Hugh, it’s not your messaging that makes you and your company horrible. It’s the horrible stuff you guys do that makes you and your company horrible. People don’t walk around making horrible stories up about good companies because they got nothing else better to do with their time. People like you and your company are horrible because … you are horrible. No matter how much jumping around you do on morning shows (where no one can really nail you down for the horrible stuff you do); you will still always be horrible and people will always greet you the way I did, when you go around trying to cover up the fact that you are horrible,” wrote Ruffalo.
Mark Ruffalo backed up these claims with facts in his extensive article hoping that he will raise awareness about the immoral thing that this biotech company is doing.
