Today, my boy Jean Claude Van Damme sent a letter to the French president urging him not to allow the censorship of a TV spot made in conjunction with the Société Protectrice des Animaux that shows the cruel truth behind bullfighting. OK, maybe JC isn’t exactly “my boy”, but after watching Time Cop and Double Impact the other week, I feel like we’re almost best friends.
But I digress. The letter, versions of which were also sent by French singer Renaud, figure skating champion Surya Bonaly, Baywatch’s Alexandra Paul, and British supermodel Twiggy Lawson, urges the French president to intervene against the French “Bureau de Vérification de la Publicité” decision to ban a video calling for an end to bullfighting. I’ve posted the banned video below. Take that, French censorship bureau!
