BP -- 'Small People' Speech Pisses Off Little People

6/18/2010 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The honchos at BP are under attack from the very "small people" they swore they'd take care of -- and now the petroleum villains could be in for an "oil midget wrestling match" ... courtesy of the "Half Pint Brawlers."

Last night -- two of the self-described "midget wrestlers" from the Spike TV show hit a BP station in Chicago to wage a two-man protest ... they also issued the following statement:

"I challenge the Chairman of the BP company, right now, to an oil midget wrestling match ... bitch."

The furor began earlier this week, when BP Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg told reporters he truly cares about all the "small people" affected by BP's catastrophic oil leak.

The correct term, Mr. Chairman, is little people.

Americans need to understand that, the "small" comment the BP Chief made has a totally different meaning in Europe. His comment means the same thing as "the average". So we should let up on him for this comment but nothing else.

He screwed up his English....freakin silly that anyone would actually get upset about it..get over it..he needs to be worrying about fixing this issue with the oil and not about people that are gonna take offense to something that was wording wrong in English by someone who is from a different country.

It seems everyone is looking for a reason to be angry these days. Always disecting comments to find one tiny element that could be racist, sexist, anti-american, ect.

the thought of those two and that old man from the oil company doing naked oil wrestling just doesn't do anything good for me.

This is just a publicity stunt. Shame on the Half Pint Brawlers for taking advantage of a tragedy.
