Cause you’re gonna lose some serious money (if your conscience isn’t already gone?)
Dos Equis is searching to replace their “Most Interesting Man in the World,” 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 “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” co-star Johnny Depp against domestic abuse charges. Del Toro argued that Amber Heard, Depp’s wife, seemed “manipulative” and “twisted.”
Apparently that wasn’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.
“Can you please remove the mention of the Heineken event in the quote?” read the request from Edelman P.R. “That was not the intent of the press day and would appreciate if you could do so.”

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