Yesterday, Moore went to Wall Street for yet another publicity stunt. It was reported that he demanded investors divest from insurance companies.

The L.A. Times reports:
“MICHAEL MOORE’S ‘Sicko’ focuses on how profit motives keep Americans from receiving quality medical care. But health insurance companies aren’t the only ones in the documentary with revenue at stake: Moore himself stands to make a mint on the film.
“Thanks to a lucrative contract… Moore is in line to receive 50% of ‘Sicko’s’ gross profits — arguably one of the most lucrative deals on Hollywood’s books, richer even than those enjoyed by the likes of Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts and director Peter Jackson.”
