The Colombian vice-president, Francisco Santos, had some harsh words for Kate “Blow Hard” Moss the other day.
Speaking on his nation’s protracted war on drugs, Santos put the blame on Moss and other coke-tooting celebs. Our guilty-pleasure, the ultra-conservative British news-tabbie, The Daily Mail quotes him as saying:
When [Moss] appeared to snort a line of cocaine, she put land mines in Colombia, she killed people in Colombia, she displaced people in Colombia, she helped finance kidnapping. To me it’s baffling that somebody who helps cause so much pain in Colombia is doing better than ever and winning more contracts than ever.
“And I never once heard her say ‘I’m sorry’. When in Colombia policemen, judges, journalists, common men and women are dying every day because of [drug-related violence], that hurts.
Oh no! Who knew Kate Moss had so much destructive power? If she does two lines, will the world stop spinning?
His words coincide with the beginning of a new advertising campaign urging druggies everywhere to consider the damage their butrose habit’s have on Colombia. The heavy-handed tagline reads, “Cocaine not only destroys you, it also destroys a country”.
We can’t help but wonder, however, if Santos has such harsh words for his politico-peers who profit off of the laughing powder.
