Sacklers SACKED! V&A Boot Out The Sickening Sacklers

As the sickening Sacklers deservedly get booted out by the V&A, Matthew Steeples suggests it is time that the media called out some other equally obnoxious ultra-high-net-worth families

The billionaire Sackler family, just like the equally rich and equally repugnant billionaire Ecclestones, are self-entitled and think they’re above the rest of the planet. Now, in the case of the first of this noxious number, it’s been proven, they’re not.


Whilst the skinflint, coffin dodging, Putin apologist 91-year-old Bernie Ecclestone now awaits trial for an alleged worldwide fraud against HMRC for allegedly not declaring £400 million ($447 million, €458 million or درهم1.6 billion) in assets, the disgrace of what the MailOnline call the “controversial US art philanthropists the Sackler family” is finally quite rightly complete with news that the V&A have torn the name of these rotten ratbags off the V&A’s Centre for Arts Education and its Exhibition Road courtyard.



Alongside their Purdue Pharma company now being bankrupted after their pushy salespeople targeted doctors and forced thousands into addiction to Oxycotin, the Observer yesterday reported that these vile ultra-high-net-worth (UHNW) profiteers have been declared “a stain on those cultural institutions that accepted them.”



Of their decision, a museum spokesperson stated:


“The V&A and the family of the late Dr. Mortimer D. Sackler have mutually agreed the V&A’s Centre for Arts Education and its Exhibition Road courtyard will no longer carry the Sackler name.


“Dame Theresa Sackler was a trustee of the V&A between 2011 and 2019, and we are immensely grateful for her service to the V&A over the years. We have no current plans to rename the spaces.”


“All donations are reviewed against the V&A’s gift acceptance policy, which includes due diligence procedures, considers reputational risk, and outlines best practice within the sector.”


Former chancellor of the exchequer and chairman of the museum George Osborne added that “ending the link with the Sacklers after 30 years would ‘move the museum into a new era.’” He tellingly, however, neglected to mention whose wonga they’d be taking in its place.


Artist Nan Goldin – who “led a group of 30 demonstrators in placing bottles of pills and red-stained ‘Oxy dollar’ bills on the V&A courtyard’s tiled floor” which concluded in a “die-in, lying down to represent the 400,000 worldwide deaths they blame on opioid dependency” – responded:


“We all choose our fight and this is mine… It’s amazing. I was shocked when I heard it. The V&A has been the last bastion of holdouts in terms of those supporting the Sacklers. It’s a big victory for people who go to museums and do not want to see the name of the family who helped ignite the overdose crisis.”


Now, today, with the Sacklers severed and sacked, it is time for others of their ilk to be turfed out with the trash. Those that profit from the misery others and praise the likes of Putin and Prince Andrew deserve all they get; it is time for such disgusting people to move from social sorts to the realms of social pariahs.

Sackler KBE (1916 – 2010), the V&A’s entrance on Cromwell Road and alleged fraudster and coffin dodger Bernie Ecclestone with Prince Andrew, a man who paid circa £12 million to a woman he never met after going to a park to cut ties with a man he most definitely knew to be a convicted paedophile.


In February 2020, ‘The Steeple Times’ reported that the “self-entitled drug flogging billionaires Mortimer D. A. and Jacqueline Sackler were rightly roasted by ‘Guest of a Guest’ for their (latest) bleating email.” At the time the female half of this cretinous couple whinged in an email to their few remaining friends: “[OxyCotin destroyed] our work, our friendships, our reputation and our ability to function in society… And worse, it dooms my children. How is my son supposed to apply to high school in September? … We would love to see you either in Gstaad, if you are here or nearby, or elsewhere in Europe (taking advantage of the ease of travel here vs ours in NYC).” Here, indeed, was just one example of how truly awful this family truly is.
Nan Goldin
In 2017, Nan Goldin protested with around 30 others at the Victoria & Albert Museum due to their involvement with a family who profiteered from the misery of others through the OxyContin drug they peddled. She has now rightly declared victory with the removal of their rotten names from the South Kensington museum.
Victoria and Albert Museum courtyard
The Sacklers paid a fortune to the Victoria & Albert Museum over the years in order to get their grubby name all over it. The Exhibition Road courtyard dedicated to them will now be thankfully cleansed of connection to these vile profiteers from the pain of others.
Alleged fraudster Bernie Ecclestone likes to hang out with happy-to-hang-out-also-with-a-paedophile Prince Andrew. He also likes to share comments in support of the tyrannical virtual dictator Vladimir Putin. On occasion, he’s called him a “first class guy” and also said Hitler was “able to get things done… He wasn’t a dictator.” Of Donald Trump, he’s commented: “He has done a lot of good things for the world” but of black people, he suggested: “In a lot of cases, black people are more racist than what white people are.” Here, in fact, one can just observe a rotten piece of toerag with a mind clearly stir-fried.
