But sadly, Pitt's humanitarian efforts weren't as perfect as his dimples. After people moved into the Make It Right homes, many started complaining about mold, rotten wood, leaky roofs, and other unsafe conditions. As it turns out, these fancy postmodern pads were built out of materials unsuitable for a humid climate. And how the hell are your flood-proof houses going to withstand another Katrina if they can't withstand "existing"?
Requests that the charitable foundation repair their handiwork were met with "years of ongoing lies and broken promises," according to one resident. Anyone hoping for Make It Right to, uh, make it right shouldn't hold their breath (though it's not a bad idea, with the mold and all). The company hasn't filed a tax form or built a shoddy house since 2015.
Today, most of the Pitt houses lie abandoned, and many owners feel so betrayed that they're suing for fraud. Of course, we should all agree that none of this is Pitt's fault. His lawyers claim that "even if the homeowners' claims against Make It Right are credible, Pitt isn't to blame." After all, does he look like the kind of guy who would recognize a 2x4 if it hit him in the head? We don't know, but plenty of Katrina victims would sure like to find out.
