"Many people are angry over a Jameson whiskey commercial that glamorizes the company because its heir, James Jameson, actually bought an 11-year-old girl and offered her to cannibals just to see her eaten. The incident is known as the horrible Jameson affair.



James Jameson 11-Year-Old Girl Cannibals Scandal Angers Whiskey Commercial ViewersThe Winter 2011 Jameson Whiskey commercial does not actually even feature James Jameson (it shows his father, John Jameson), but because the man was the heir to the brand, people are still outraged by it. Twitter's Katie Brooker tweeted, "The real Mr. Jameson purchased a child to have it cooked and eaten. Why isn't that in the commercial?"

The tweet linked to a Book called Stanley: the impossible life of Africa's greatest explorer. Page 356 of the book describes the horrible Jameson affair. It is truly shocking. Jameson actually made sketches of the girl being stabbed to death, dismembered, cooked, and then eaten. His journal even documented the girl's awful fate with the cannibals." (More)
