Stupidity of Pink Fracking Fully Exposed on The Daily Show

Even Susan G. Komen's own website shares the chemicals from fracking that are linked to breast cancer, but it didn't stop them from partnering with oil and gas giant Baker Hughes, which donated $100,000 to Komen in October for the "Doing Our Bit for the Cure" campaign where 1,000 fracking drill bits were painted pink.

The viral post on EcoWatch, written by breast cancer survivor and fracking activist Sandra Steingraber, exposed the hypocrisy of this campaign. Now, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart takes this outrageous partnership to new heights.

Watch this hilarious segment where The Daily Show's Samantha Bee meets Karuna Jaggar, executive director of Breast Cancer Action, to fully uncover the stupidity of pink fracking.
