Jennifer Hudson Criticized For Appearing In Shell Campaign

Jennifer Hudson Faces Online Abuse With Comments As Extreme As Telling Her To “Kill Herself” For Appearing In Music Video Campaign For Shell.

Jennifer Hudson has faced abuse from cruel trolls after appearing in a music video campaign for Shell.

The singer, 35, performs a song called Best Day Of My Life alongside Pixie Lott and four other musicians, in order to promote the brand’s support of clean energy.

However the Daily Star reports that the new judge of The Voice UK has been attacked by environmentalists for participating in the Make The Future campaign – with one particularly abusive user even telling her to kill herself.

Yet the video, which has been watched more than 100 million times on Shell’s Facebook page, has received huge backlash – with the Dreamgirls star particularly being targeted for working with the ‘evil’ oil firm.

One user however, whose name and photo have not been verified, made a string of highly abusive posts on the video, which called for Jennifer to put ‘a rope round her neck’ and ‘jump’.
