Backstreet Boys Boycott BP In Wake Of Gulf Oil Spill Crisis
BSB is calling foul on BP.
Groundbreaking boy band the Backstreet Boys are joining hip-hopster Kanye West and heavy metal band Korn in boycotting British Petroleum’s (BP) fuel in protest of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Backstreet decided to back up Korn by boycotting BP after performing in Biloxi, Mississippi last week — where they witnessed the plight of marine life and working families devastated by the disaster.
The band urges fans to throw their support behind the cause too.
“I’m devastated by what I’ve seen first hand and on the news. I’ve always been a marine activist and seeing pictures of oil-covered animals breaks my heart,” said Nick Carter.
Bandmate Brian Littrell added: “We just played Biloxi last week and I have to tell you people are really worried down there. This boycott is about making a statement,letting people know how we feel and to stand for something.”
