Year old photo of Heineken banners at a dog fight goes viral...sparking outrage
Just found this tonight. It is from last year, but I wanted to share with you guys for those who hadn't seen this yet. Heineken of course denies any involvement.

Heineken denounces dog-fighting photo
A photograph that appears to show banners for Heineken beer prominently displayed during a dogfight has gone viral in recent weeks, but Heineken has denied sponsoring any such events.

The photograph shows two dogs fighting inside a caged arena while a cameraman films the event and an audience cheers. Several Heineken banners hang above the audience to one side of the arena.

The image, which first showed up online nearly a year ago, received a push in recent weeks, inspiring online petitions, angry blog posts, and complaints on Heineken's Facebook page, where people have vowed to boycott the brand.

I guess it is possible the pic has been photoshopped. Sometimes it's very hard to tell the difference.

Looks pretty damn legit. I can't imagine a shopper having that much eye for intricate details.

On that note, the image has two very unique individual water marks. Can't that hard to trace down the origin. Especially being as everyone in the image is asiatic.

Only truly sick human beings enjoy watching animals kill each other. I will never buy Heineken again for sponsoring this.

Might need to read the story before you twist your panties.

Heineken has denied any involvement with the event. The company released the following statement:

"Images are circulating on a number of websites showing what appears to be an illegal dogfight with Heineken banners (placed upside down) clearly visible. HEINEKEN is shocked and disappointed by this image. HEINEKEN is not and would never knowingly be associated with illegal activities, including those involving cruelty to animals. This is a gross misrepresentation of our brand and our legal team is now investigating the source of the picture and will take the necessary measures. We ask anyone with information regarding this picture such as the source, or the venue where it has been taken to contact us."

Those look like banners/flags that are sometimes displayed outside of bars....it's pretty hard to tell exactly the location of this. It could be outside of a bar that had the Heiny banners. Or...the idiot punks doing the dogfight could have hung them up cause they thought it made them look badass. I mean, come on...Heineken has been a much-loved and respected company for many years, why the hell would they ever sponsor something that would so obviously receive this kind of backlash from their customers??
