brad pitt, bp, oil spillWe haven’t heard much from Brad Pitt concerning the oil spill in the Gulf, but his latest comments are sure to spark some discussion.

The 46-year-old actor appears in Spike Lee’s new documentary film ‘If God is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise’ — and doesn’t hold back on how he feels those behind the disaster should be treated.

He says, “I was never for the death penalty before – I am willing to look at it again.”

Granted, without seeing the clip, it’s hard to tell whether Pitt is serious or making a quip to express his anger. Either way, it’s good to hear from the guy on the topic — especially with all the time, money, and energy he’s invested to help rebuild New Orleans.

Check out a trailer below for the doc premiering tonight on HBO.

    Personally, I think the execs should be tarred and feathered and made to walk around all day, every day, without the ability to shed their “new skin” for as many days as it took to cap the spill.

    Because frankly Tony, we want our life back too…

    death penalty?

    I don’t think comments like that help very much tbh.

      No they don’t help, but it did get him mentioned in the press which is what it was all about anyways.

      Why? He’s right. They should all be dragged into the streets and shot in front of their families.
