Cause you’re gonna lose some serious money (if your conscience isn’t already gone?)
Dos Equis is searching to replace their â€œMost Interesting Man in the World,â€ and while Benicio Del Toro popped in to fill in the void, Heineken is not into his defense of BFF Johnny Depp.
On Tuesday, Heineken sponsored a promotional event hosted by Benicio Del Toro, who took the opportunity to defend his â€œFear and Loathing in Las Vegasâ€ co-star Johnny Depp against domestic abuse charges. Del Toro argued that Amber Heard, Deppâ€™s wife, seemed â€œmanipulativeâ€ and â€œtwisted.â€
Apparently that wasnâ€™t the kind of press that Heineken had in mind. After the Daily News story ran, a staffer for the Edelman public relations firm, which represents Heineken, called and emailed, asking that we disassociate their client from that damning Del Toro article.
â€œCan you please remove the mention of the Heineken event in the quote?â€ read the request from Edelman P.R. â€œThat was not the intent of the press day and would appreciate if you could do so.â€

Good on you, Heineken, for not taking s*it from nobody!
