Mr. T Turns Down One Million Dollars
I don't think I would turn down one million dollars to promote a company, but Mr. T did. In a recent interview with Huff Post, he turned down the money for a beer commercial. He said, "They offered me almost a million dollars in Japan to do a beer commercial and I said, 'No, I can't do it'. The guy said, 'No man, won't nobody see it. First it was $700,000 and then they moved the price up. Why, because I said no... I don't drink for number one. If I drink that would be something else different. I mean don't get me wrong, I've tasted champagne, I've had beer before and what not, but I'm not into that."
Turning down a truck load of money because of his morals, he is a stand up guy.
