Anger as Glitter is paid £100k for ads
Gary Glitter, formally of Wedmore, has been handed a £100,000 payday by bungling advertising chiefs.
Computer giant Hewlett Packard is using Glitter's 1972 hit Do You Wanna Touch Me to promote a new touch-screen model.
The song features on an ad that is being shown all over America. The advert uses a 1982 cover version sung by US rocker Joan Jett. But because the song was originally written by Gary Glitter, the 64-year-old paedophile collects all the royalites.
US campaigners are now demanding Hewlett Packard axe the advert. Child Abusewatch.net said: "It shows a distinct lack of sensitivity."
