Sorry, Enterprise Rent-a-Car: You’re out of gas, as far as James Woods is concerned.
The actor and noted conservative blasted Enterprise Rent-a-Car on Friday after the company decided to end its discount program for National Rifle Association members amid an increasingly vocal debate about gun control in America.
The “Once Upon a Time in America” actor vented at the car-rental giant in response to a tweet from Enterprise.
“Thank you for contacting us! All three of our brands have ended the discount for NRA members,” Enterprise wrote, in response to an inquiry. “This change will be effective March 26. Thank you again for reaching out. Kind regards, Michael.”
Woods extended his own, sarcasm-soaked thanks to the company, and urged NRA members to “rethink” who they would rent cars from in the future.
“And thank YOU for disrespecting all your law-abiding now former clients, who work arduously to promote firearm safety,” Woods wrote. “I used to use @Enterprise. I now welcome all fellow @NRA members to rethink their car rental arrangements.”
Memo to rival car-rental agencies: If you were considering adding gun racks to your rentals as a standard feature, now might be the time.
A number of companies have severed ties with the NRA as the organization continues to dig in its heels on gun control, despite the growing protest stemming from the Feb. 14 shooting at a Florida school left 17 dead. CNN reports that those companies include home-security firm SimpliSafe and the First National Bank of Omaha.
