Kirstie Alley slams ad for antipsychotic drug; Updated

http://twitter.com/#!/kirstiealley/status/318353141970108416

We’re not sure what ad Alley saw, and we’re not sure what drug other than Abilify is being promoted.

For that matter, we’re also not sure why it’s “Orwellian” for a drug manufacturer to use animated characters to promote an FDA-approved antipsychotic.

In any case, it is just one more example of the idiocy that passes for sound science among the “medicines are poisons” crowd.

Update:

Alley continued her anti-pharmaceutical rant this afternoon:

Big PHAMA not marketing to youth? ABILIFY…Talking umbrella, cute little smiley pill, while lethal side effects like suicide r rattled off

She also retweeted these:

@kirstiealley When drug co’s can afford ads that get between a doc & his patients every 15 seconds something is wrong somewhere.

Here’s how she responded when a reader defended Abilify’s advertising:

@suzieqolden I consider what I say onmy own timeline my prerogative ..I didn’t seek you out so no need to be a fuckwit…move along

— Kirstie Alley (@kirstiealley) March 31, 2013

Sounds like Alley and Donald Trump would get along just fine.
