Drew Brees' PointsBet commercial has left lightning strike victims enraged with a major organization ripping the NFL superstar's "inappropriate" and "disgusting" stunt...(uhhh, is this a stunt too?)...
quote:

Lightning Strike and Electric Shock Survivors International -- an organization that has members in 13 countries that helps those impacted by similar accidents -- got wind of Brees' commercial ... and they tell TMZ Sports they're not happy.

"The recent Drew Brees lightning commercial is an inappropriate, disgusting method of promoting gambling or any TV commercial campaign," a statement from LSESSI says.

"This is a deadly injury, and it is disappointing to see the continual ridicule of lightning and electrical injury survivors in comical light in which it is presented for commercial gain and profit."

The org. says it did not find any humor in the ad ... considering many survivors are forever impacted after an accident, and it affects their loved ones as well.

"To poke fun at these folks and make this injury trivial is unacceptable, and what example does it set for our children to learn?"

There's more -- "As a survivor, this is very disturbing, the thoughtlessness on the part of the participants who are trying to profit from tragedy is remarkable. Much progress through hard work and education has been made over the last twenty years to lower the lightning/electrical deaths and risk of injury through education and informed knowledge of the dangers."

The org. believes Brees' ad "just set us back 20 years."
Seriously, are we being pranked again?

The entire NFL dropped down to their knees for BLM. Drew Brees is not the only one. Now does he have to bow down to lightning strike victims too? How about abide by the law and stay out of lightning storms and stop crying what about me!

Drew brought all of this on himself, NEVER APOLOGIZE for something you are morally correct on. He's now just a sad example of the consequences.

Is there a woke support group for catching my pinky toe on the table leg? There would be more members than lightning strike victims!
This world is filled with p******s!

I did not know there was a support group for this. Lightning strike must not be as rare as they say

Normally, I'd say these people need to get the frick over it. But Brees deserves every bit of bad PR and annoyance that comes his way for his frickery
