Columbian President Is Furious With Bruce Willis' Cocaine Comments
Bruce Willis has been dubbed "ignorant" and "ungrateful" by the Colombian president after claiming the country's drug trade was killing the United States. The star spoke out during a press conference for his new movie 16 Blocks last month. He said, "I'm talking about going to Colombia and doing whatever it takes to end the cocaine trade.
He added, "It's killing this country. It's killing all the countries that coke goes into. I believe that somebody's making money on it in the United States. If they weren't making money on it, they would have stopped it."
But President Alvaro Uribe is furious. He says, ""This is an ungrateful attitude toward Colombia's sacrifices. This is arrogance, ignorance. This is an attitude that shocks the dignity of Colombia."
