Warner Bros. promised to give African amputees, prosthetic limbs in exchange for more publicity for their movie, The Blood Diamond. The producers brought in 27 orphaned amputees to appear as extra in the Leonardo DiCaprio flick.
Pictures of Leonardo with the children were released last week. In addition to paying the children, producers said they would have limbs made for them. Sluts lied. Filming wrapped in June and the orphans still haven’t gotten what they were promised.
When an organization benefiting the orphans asked producers, they received this response, “You will have to wait for December, when the movie comes out, so we can get some publicity out of it.”
A rep for WB says, “We are still working on it.”
What the hell is wrong with everyone taken advantage of these orphans and using them for publicity? This movie is going to tank anyway.
