Capital One Should Fire Spokesman Alec Baldwin
July 5, 2013 Mr. Richard D. Fairbank Founder, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer Capital One 1860 Capital One Drive McLean, VA 22102 Dear Mr. Fairbank, We are writing to express our outrage at the recent homophobic statements made by your spokesman Alec Baldwin. Those vile anti-gay comments have no place in public discourse and reflect poorly on Capital One. Thus far, you have chosen to show your approval of his statements by condoning them with your silence. You should denounce Mr. Baldwin’s statements and he should be released from his contract with Capital One. We will urge all Americans to stand up to homophobia and anti-gay bigotry by standing with us against Alec Baldwin and the company he represents.
