Crossing the line

I’m not a gambling man but I have to say that I’ve often enjoyed the responsive marketing campaigns from Paddy Power. From Nicklas Bendtner and his lucky pants, through to sending up Kim Jong-Un, they’ve managed to traverse the line between taste and decency. Until now. Ladies and Gentlemen, if you pop over to the Paddy Power site right now, they are offering a Money Back Special if Oscar Pistorius is found not guilty!

Wow! Has that sunk in yet? For me, this has crossed the line on so many levels as it makes light of domestic violence, gun ownership and murder! Not to mention the lack of respect shown to the family of the victim. For shame Paddy Power. For shame.
