BP chair: Sorry for 'small people' remark on Gulf - Yahoo! News
VENICE, La. – BP's chairman has apologized for saying the company cares about the "small people" of the Gulf Coast hit by the oil disaster — a comment met with anger by those who say they are tired of the company's executives making insensitive remarks.
On Wednesday, Carl-Henric Svanberg told reporters in Washington: "I hear comments sometimes that large oil companies are greedy companies or don't care, but that is not the case with BP. We care about the small people." He later said he was sorry for speaking "clumsily."
