Actor Mark Ruffalo Calls Out Monsanto: “You Are Poisoning People”

Actor Mark Ruffalo, good job telling the truth about Monsanto
Actor Mark Ruffalo Calls Out Monsanto: “You Are Poisoning People”

Perhaps you’ve imagined what you would say, were you ever given the chance to address Monsanto’s CEO. Actor Mark Ruffalo recently had that chance, and he made the most of it.

Before a segment for the movie Spotlight with Mike Rezendez, Ruffalo was in the green room watching Monsanto CEO Hugh Grant on screen giving “slippery non-answer[s] to every question he was asked.”

Ruffalo’s long been an advocate, so when Grant came through the green room, he simply told him this: “You are wrong. You are engaged in monopolizing food. You are poisoning people. You are killing small farms. You are killing bees. What you are doing is dead wrong.”

Likely taken a bit aback, Grant responded: “Well, what I think we are doing is good.”

It was a short exchange, but telling. Ruffalo followed up by writing about the experience for EcoWatch.

“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
