Korn members boycott BP fuel to protest oil spill
Los Angeles: Members of the metal band Korn have banned their tour bus drivers from using British Petroleum (BP) oil as a mark of protest against the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
The music group has not only launched a boycott against using the BP`s fuel, it also strongly encouraging other touring artists to do the same, reports aceshowbiz.com
Jonathan Davis, lead vocalist and frontman of the band, says they took the decision following the spill from the exploded BP rig which has now been declared the worst environmental disaster in US history.
"The daily images are hard to watch. We need to do our part to let BP know there are consequences for causing something like this. We want to send a message to corporations like BP so that they will take more preventative measures in the future," said Davis.
"The more costly their punishment, the more money they will spend to make sure disasters like this don`t happen again," he added.
