Terri Carlin of Knoxville, Tennessee has filed a lawsuit against Viacom, CBS, MTV, Janet Jackson, and Justin Timberlake “on behalf of all Americans who watched the Super Bowl,” blaming Jackson and Timberlake for causing her and millions of other unsuspecting viewers “to suffer outrage, anger, embarrassment and serious injury.”
The serious injury must have been to Ms. Carlin’s brain which cause her to go completely insane, and in turn file this unbelievably ridiculous lawsuit. This shows us how frivolous American’s have become with law suits. I mean please. Aren’t outrage, anger and embarrassment natural feelings? These feeling do make people feel outraged, angered or embarrassed – but they are just feelings.
Did Ms. Carlin faint at the sight of Janet’s boob, and hit her head on something? I’m not quite understanding the serious injury part of the lawsuit. Why hasn’t anyone sued the streaker?
The part that I love about the lawsuit is (bottom of pg. 4)
“these events would reflect the standards and the reputation of Americans abroad, plaintiff and the members of the plaintiff class have been defamed by the defendants and have suffered injuries and damages to their reputations as Americans.”
Has Ms. Carlin ever travelled to Europe? Where sexuality is taken much more lightly. I think President Bush’s decision to send troops to Iraq did more damage to the reputations of American’s abroad than Janet Jackson’s boob did.
