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?

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!

What are the odds PointsBet formed LSESSI to stir up controversy and generate publicity for their ad?

As far as I am concerned it is kinda silly. But he deserves it after caving to the woke mob and not having a backbone to stand for the flag!!!!

The irony of TeeRoy calling it silly to be offended by trivial shite, all the while he was offended grown strangers peacefully knelt during :lol:

At least he isn't burning cities, having single moms fired for contradicting you with FBI data or gang jumping innocent people all because he was "offended by trivial shite" like your fellow mob of unwashed felons and child molesters, Tigerfan56...

I identify as being struck by lightening, and on behalf of the entire LS/ESSI community (there are dozens of us), your comment is hate speech and won't be tolerated ;^)

Brees turned himself into a straight up pandering bitch. He deserves all the shite he has to eat.

If that dude was pandering for your bullshite, you'd have no problems. Why don't yall just come out and say it, "unless you like and agree with everything I do, you're forever dead to me". You're as weak and whiny as anybody else.

Or goldfinger just doesn’t care for people who put a rapists name on their helmets? I for one find it hard to respect someone who does that. I don’t think Brees is a bad guy but it’s hard to have any respect for him.

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.

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
