According to your post (see insert below), you have stated that “cleaned up his image for some cash. PETA DOES NOT pay celebrities or individuals or organizations to participate in the campaigns. It is an honor one is giving to be part of their campaigns. So pls correct your wording, for it is falsehood on your part.

After I stopped laughing I replied that my sarcastic off the cuff remark would stay, and then I received this reply,

Considering your ” off the cuff/sarcastic remark “, it is in fact libelous. To be a non-bias journalist, you would keep your personal thoughts out. Obviously your not a serious journalist. Again your falsehood statement will be followed up by our legal dept then.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I don’t know WHO or WHAT gave them the impression that I was a “serious journalist” in the first place.  This is a BLOG, and along with the thousands of other bloggers out there I actively exercise my right of  freedom of speech on a daily basis and that will NEVER change.

And as for them getting their legal department involved – GOOD LUCK WITH THAT!

Idiots.

June 19, 2011 3 comments

On Wednesday 15 June I attended the highly anticipated I’mPOSSIBLE Conversation, an event founded by the brilliant Simone Bresi-Ando for British women of colour (from all walks of life) to share their experiences in an intimate and friendly environment.

Actress, comedian and the evening’s host Tameka Empson, former Channel 4 TV commissioner Angela Ferreira, playwright, art critic and author Bonnie Greer OBE,  actress, playwright and comedian Angie LeMar, author Precious Williams and ITV Newsreader Charlene White each gave their pearls of wisdom, funny recollections and experiences to a packed and engaged audience at the Lynne Franks female entrepreneur members club in fashionable Covent Garden, London.

Each of the ladies on the panel were honest, encouraging and are all great inspirations. It was a fantastic event and I hope there will be more to come. After leaving the I’mPOSSIBLE Conversation I now feel more than ever that I can do and achieve anything that I put my mind to. Yes I am POSSIBLE too!
