Steelers WR Emmanuel Sanders has an anti-littering TV ad pulled by the Pennsylvania Resources Council after he plead guilty to leaving boxes beside a private dumpster.
“I think littering is more throwing trash on the ground and knowing that you’re wrong for it,” Sanders said. ”I actually put the trash in the trash can. That’s the big difference.”
He ended up paying $300 and court costs for it. Here's the TV spot that's been pulled.
Our opinion, E. Sanders actually brought MORE attention to the anti-littering campaign by leaving those boxes there and getting the fine. No one would be talking about this or even care if the ad hadn't been pulled...so....really....he did a pretty good job making everyone in the Pittsburgh area aware of "not littering".
Also, he came out to Stuff A Bus last year and is a really nice guy. Swag.
