Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx has responded to Johnson and Johnson before forced to make a huge payment due to their role in the Oklahoma opioid crisis. Mick Mars brutally called out a Motley Crue fraud yesterday.
Sixx tweeted, “Johnson & Johnson must pay $572 million in Oklahoma opioid crisis, judge rules #SmartNews.”
He later wrote, “Someone asked me why I keep talking about addiction. To be honest, for man who came from nothing an now has the life he has, I owe so much to my ACTUAL recovery so I’m not ONLY talking about addiction I am talking about what recovery from addiction can look like. #Sobriety.”
NBC reported, “An Oklahoma judge on Monday ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay over $572 million for pushing doctors to prescribe opioids while downplaying the risks of addiction, actions that state prosecutors said helped fuel the state’s opioid epidemic and led to more than 6,000 deaths over nearly two decades.
Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter claimed in court that the sales push by Johnson & Johnson and its pharmaceutical subsidiary, Janssen, starting in the 1990s had created “a public nuisance” that led to the deaths.”
A Motley Crue icon reacted to a terrible cancer revelation a couple of days ago. Purdue Pharma and its owners, the Sackler family, are offering to settle more than 2,000 lawsuits against the company for $10 billion to $12 billion, NBC is also reporting in news just broken today. Purdue’s lawyers considered the deal during a confidential meeting in Cleveland last Tuesday according to two unnamed sources.
