Bernie Ecclestone Really Needs To Stop Talking
Ecclestone apologized for his statements, but that hasn’t stopped him from opening his mouth again and inserting his foot even deeper.
After being told that the World Jewish Congress had called for his resignation, Ecclestone responded by blaming the financial crisis on Jews.
“It’s a pity they didn’t sort the banks out,” he said. ‘ He was then asked to elaborate and added, “They have a lot of influence everywhere.”
More and more voices are expressing their outrage and are calling for a boycott of Formula One. “No team should work with him any more – a boycott would be more than appropriate,” said a spokesman for Germany’s Central Council of Jews.
Between the remarks about Hitler and the implication that Jews run the banks, it’s hard to not see a pattern here. Throw in Max Mosley and F1 really needs to take a hard look at the people who are in charge and the image they are portraying.
A boycott might get Bernie Ecclestone & Co. to realize they need to stop making such insensitive anti-Semitic statements, but will it ever change their views? Quite likely it won’t, and that’s just sad.
