Jennifer Lopez Under Scrutiny For Fiat Contract

Jennifer Lopez has found herself in the middle of a political parody for her Iveco, manufacturer of Fiat, endorsement.

United Against Nuclear Iran, a New York-based organization, released an open letter asking (used loosely here) the American Idol judge to end her business ties with the car company because of its dealings with Iran.

The statement in-part read that the star “serving as a spokesperson for a company that freely does business with a regime that is developing an illegal nuclear weapons program, financing and sponsoring terrorist groups including al-Qaeda, has killed American and NATO soldiers and is recognized as one of the world’s leading human right’s violators.”

To further drive home their point, the organization released an online parody of Jennifer’s “My World” Fiat commercial where bloody images of Iranian people have been photo-shopped throughout the singer’s original ad.

The ad goes even further by imitating Lopez’s voice with a voiceover stating, “Fiat sells cars, truck and other equipment on the streets of Iran, where the brutal Iranian regime represses its own people, hangs homosexuals, support terrorists including al-Qaeda and builds a nuclear weapon…I would never want that on my block, but Fiat does pay me millions.”

Should Jennifer drop the endorsement?
