George Clooney's Nespresso commercials deliver a message of elegance and luxury. But now the coffee maker and Clooney are under fire because of a new documentary series.
It alleges that to make Nespresso, young children in Guatemala are forced to work grueling, long hours to pick coffee beans for as little as $5 a day. Clooney, who reportedly earns almost $40 million as Nespresso’s brand ambassador, says he is "surprised and saddened" by the claims. The documentary will air Monday in the U.K.
