Hi everyone. There are an awful lot of ads on tv promoting gambling/betting opportunities.
I believe these ads (in such abundance) seem to give the impression that its normal (and even low risk) to gamble.
It worries me that whilst the ads put it across that it’s fun & only £10, it could lead to a user getting in deeper, maybe putting themselves & their families at risk of uncontrollable debt & all the heartache that can bring.
AIBU to think that the likes of Ant & Dec, Harry Redknapp (sorry if that’s misspelled), and other stars, are a disgrace to be seen in these ads?
I mean like it or not, some folk are influenced by celebrities & in some cases they are seen as role models.
Don’t celebrities gain enough income through their other activities? Have they not got a conscience about the possible outcome of them promoting betting?
Am I alone in feeling turned off by the celebs that appear on tv advertising betting companies?
