Brad Pitt's Charity Slammed After Katrina Victims' Houses Start Rotting

An owner of a house which was built by Pitt's charity Make It Right New Orleans says, 'The wood turned gray and it was also black.'

Several houses which were built by Brad Pitt's charity Make It Right New Orleans for the victims of Hurricane Katrina have started to rot. The charity built more than two dozen of houses in the Ninth Ward and they apparently started rotting from the inside out.

"The wood turned gray and it was also black," a homeowner called Nola Verrett, who has been living in the house for four years, told Radar Online. "Also some parts it was buckling and it had mushrooms growing out of it. Different neighborhoods saw it too."

A representative for the charity has responded to the complain and blamed the company which was responsible for providing the plumber. "It was unable to withstand moisture, which is obviously a big problem in New Orleans," Make It Right's Taylor Royle explained to the New Orleans Advocate. Pitt's camp reportedly is considering legal action against the company. Both the company and Make It Right declined to comment on the report.

While the rotting wood in Verrett's house has been replaced with yellow pine, others are still waiting for their turn. "It didn't take no time at all. It's just like they said. If something's wrong, they make it right. We are very happy with our Make It Right home," Verrett said. Another homeowner called Gloria Guy told WDSU News New Orleans, "They replaced a lot of houses but they ain't replaced mine. They're supposed to come pretty soon and do it."
