I don’t really do energy drinks anymore, but I did from time to time a few years back. They all taste like vile, sugary yack-piss anyway, but at least with Rockstar you’d get more than 10 ounces for your 2 bucks. As if you need another reason not to drink the shit, I just learned that Rockstar is part owned by conservative radio host Michael Savage.
Savage is practically a nazi. He routinely refers to gays as “sodomites” and says that we should all get AIDS and die. While discussing Melissa Etheridge and Tammy Lynn Michaels’ wedding he had this to say: “I don’t like a woman married to a woman. It makes me want to puke…I want to vomit when I hear it. I think it’s child abuse.” We need to stand together and say, “Your energy drink makes me want to puke!”
His radio show is consistently loaded with racist, sexist, and homophobic content. I can’t believe stores even carry his shitty energy drink based on the foul things he says. Even worse, according to the Advocate, Pepsi has recently entered a distribion deal with Rockstar. Tell your friends not to drink any of their shit either. If everyone who strongly disagrees with Michael Savage’s fucked-up world view participates in the boycott I think there’s no doubt that Pepsi and anyone else will rightly discontinue doing business with this asshole.
