If anyone is actually watching the #FIFASlaveCup, please let me know what companies are advertising there so I can boycott them too, thanks.
How many people have to die horribly for a bit of entertainment before even the thought of it makes you sick to your stomach?
Imagine spending $220bn only to become synonymous with repression, corruption & modern slavery.
