Man sues actress for staring at him through tv, and other bogus lawsuits
A Chinese man is suing an actress for staring at him through his television screen. The man claims actress Zhao Wei's piercing gaze is causing him "spiritual damage" and with new laws that make filing lawsuits in China easier than ever, the damaged soul will seek judicial compensation.
This obviously isn't the first bogus lawsuit. In 2005, Austin Aitken sued NYC for $2.5 million claiming that watching an episode of Fear Factor caused him "suffering, injury, and great pain." People know they can turn off their t.v.s right?
In 2014 a New York man sued New York City for "two underillion dollars" ($2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) for being bitten by a dog on a bus.
In 1991, a man sued Anheuser-Busch for $10,000 insisting that a commercial depicting a "scenic tropical settings [and] beautiful women and men engaged in endless and unrestricted merriment" was false advertising. The man claimed the misleading advertisement caused him emotional distress, mental injury, and financial loss. The man lost the court case though we aren't surprised that a sexually frustrated drunk who use Bud Light to find pretty girls was deemed a loser.
The MTV show Jackass was sued by a man legally named Jack Ass because the man feared the show's immature and reckless nature would defame his reputation (wow). Formerly known as Robert Craft, the man legally changed his name in 1997 to Jack Ass as part of a movement to raise awareness about drunk driving. Ass's case was eventually dismissed.
