Ed NortonI’ve always thought that it was strange how the richest people always seem to get so much for free. Kind of counter-intuitive, don’t you think? I know, everyone wants their product on the arm of a celebrity – it’s simple marketing.

Now Ed Norton is speaking out against the baskets, “I mean the gift baskets, worth amounts of money that a low income family could live on for a year, [are given to] people who have so much already. It gets depressing. You sit there, going, ‘This is an embarrassment.’”

George Clooney auctioned his basket off through United Way last year.

Norton also says that he and others want to do away with the swag altogether, “A lot of us have talked to the Academy Awards producers about this and I think they’re actually going to scuttle the gift baskets and that kind of stuff.”

Also not helping the gift basket frenzy: This past year there was all sorts of issues as gift-baskets were declared taxable by the IRS.
