George Clooney has been at the forefront of Nespresso’s advertising for many years. Now, the company is facing fierce criticism after it has been exposed for using child labor. Clooney’s response? The A-list celebrity claims he never knew and was ‘surprised’ when he heard the news.


EVERY JUDGE THAT HAS BEEN FIRED FROM ‘BRITAIN’S GOT TALENT’

George Clooney is ‘saddened’ by the news

Clooney has been the face of coffee brand, Nespresso since 2006. Featuring in adverts, billboards and online screens in stores across the world, it’s fair to say that Clooney is hard to miss.

The brand, however is facing criticism after Channel 4 journalist, Anthony Barnett is set to expose the brand for using child labour in an upcoming documentary. Clooney quickly responded to the news, hoping that action will be taken to combat child labor on Nespresso bean farms.


The Hollywood actor and filmmaker has already praised the journalists at Channel 4 that uncovered the story. Here is the full statement George Clooney made after the story broke:

“Having grown up working on a tobacco farm from the time I was 12 I’m uniquely aware of the complex issues regarding farming and child labor. That’s why I joined the Sustainability advisory board of Nespresso seven years ago along with the Rainforest Alliance, Fair Trade International, and the Fair Labour Association among many others with the goal then, as it remains to this day to improve the lives of farmers. With that in mind it is also imperative to have talented investigative reporters showing the board where they have yet to succeed … Clearly this board and this company still have work to do.”
