Most people have probably seen the custom Fiat commercials with Jennifer Lopez driving through her old stomping grounds – but most of you didn’t know that Fiat has possible terrorist ties! An advocacy group is urging J.Lo to drop the endorsement as they say the Italian automaker is openly doing business with terrorist groups that make illegal nuclear weapons.
Per E! Online:
In an open letter to Lopez released on Thursday, the president for United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) wrote, in part, the following: “By endorsing Fiat, you are serving as a spokesperson for a company that freely does business with a regime that is developing an illegal nuclear weapons program, financing and sponsoring terrorist groups including al-Qaeda, has killed American and NATO soldiers and is recognized as one of the world’s leading human rights violators.”
The letter goes on to state that Iveco, a Fiat subsidiary, “produces vehicles that are reportedly used by the Iranian regime as platforms to stage gruesome public executions.”
At the same time, UANI sent a letter to Fiat Chairman Sergio Marchionne demanding that the Italian company, which now owns 60 percent of Chrysler, cut its ties to Iran. Lopez has until January 18th to reply with a decision as to whether or not she will continue her relationship with the company – if she stays, she will stand accused of supporting Iran’s illegal nuclear missile program.
Yeah, yeah, yea… and people who drive Volkswagens support Nazis, right?
