NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) President, Ambassador Mark D. Wallace, issued the following statement today regarding the success of UANI’s Fiat parody video, featuring Jennifer Lopez. The UANI video already has more than 30,000 YouTube views, and has been covered by dozens of national media outlets:
We appreciate the overwhelming and positive response to our Fiat campaign and Jennifer Lopez parody video. Thousands of our supporters have been writing to Fiat, and expressing their opposition to Fiat’s continued irresponsible business in Iran. Fiat should hear the message loud and clear: it must end its business in Iran.
American consumers have a choice in the car that they drive, and they will always choose one produced by a responsible automaker to one made by a company that brazenly does business with the brutal Iranian regime.
We again call on Ms. Lopez to use her leading status as a global spokesperson to speak out against Fiat’s business in Iran, and the regime’s appalling human rights abuses. Her silence is unfortunate and disappointing.
UANI contacted Ms. Lopez and Fiat executives earlier this month regarding Fiat’s business in Iran and the Iranian regime’s human rights abuses and nuclear ambitions. UANI has yet to receive responses of any sort.
Fiat sells and distributes trucks in Iran, through its subsidiary Iveco, which have been used by the Iranian regime to transport ballistic missiles and stage gruesome public executions. Fiat also continues to operate in Iran’s automobile market, and is reportedly planning to expand its presence there by opening a luxury Maserati dealership in Tehran.
