More Mindless Stories on ‘lawsuit’
According to USA Today Carol Burnett is suing Fox for $2 million
(insert Dr. Evil laugh here____) due to copyright infringement on an episode of the Family Guy
. In the episode in question, they used a likeness of Carol Burnett’s “Charwoman” character as a porn shop cleaning woman. I thought it was brilliant, but I guess Carol is pissed. A statement that was issued from Fox summed it up best when it said:
“Family Guy, like The Carol Burnett Show, is famous for its pop culture parodies and satirical jabs at celebrities. We are surprised that Ms. Burnett, who has made a career of spoofing others on television, would go so far as to sue Family Guy for a simple bit of comedy.”
Seriously? Does Carol smell burnt toast? Is she having a stroke? Lighten up. I think the creators of Gone With the Wind should sue Carol for her spoof on that movie. Yeah, that’s right I said it. Spoof. I also think Mr. Ed should sue Carol for stealing his horse teeth. Yeah, horse teeth. I’m fired up.
In the “I Can’t Believe I’m About to Report on This
” News, ex American Idol contestant Mario Vasquez is being accused that he tried to “pleasure himself” in front of a male employee in the bathroom on the set of American Idol in February of 2005.
What a jerk (pun intended)!
The lawsuit, which allegedly hasn’t been served yet, is basically dealing with a sexual harassment issue. When I first heard that someone from American Idol was involved in some type of sex scandal I just assumed it would have been Frenchie Davis and Randy Jackson. I figured “dogs” were involved and that Paula took pictures, etc.
Anyway, if you remember correctly shortly after February 2005, Mario unexpectedly dropped out of American Idol for “personal reasons.” To read the rest of what this person is alleging, click here but just don’t do it while eating breakfast. I warned you.
