Thousands of coastal workers are outraged after being called "small people" by a British Petroleum executive.

Those remarks were made by Chairman Carl Svanberg, who made the comment to reporters in Washington D.C..

Svanberg, a Swedish native, does not speak English as his first language. He has since apologized for what he called 'clumsy speaking.'
