Oh man .. not even Ellen DeGeneres is safe !!
The talk show host and comedienne is being litigated by a Georgia woman for defamation after a restraint on her daytime TV staple apparently led to significant loss of privacy for the suspect casualty!
Titi Pierce , a real estate negotiator and electronics engineer in Warner Robins, GA, filed a prosecution against the funnywoman arguing that a February 22 occurrence of The Ellen Show went too far in making fun of her identify — and failing to blur out her cell phone number.
Pierce, whose name is declare ‘Tee Tee, ‘ was jokingly announced ‘Titty’ by the talk show host on air, and after Ellen’s makes failed to blur her cell phone number when her paint was shown on the escapade, the Georgia woman alleges than hundreds of beings announced her during the course of its funeral of a family member.
Now, she’s indicting Ellen for libel, mistaken light-headed raid of privacy, misappropriation of likeness, and intentional imposition of feeling distress — all while claiming Ellen shouldn’t have made an inappropriate parody about her hearts, either.
Pierce says the kicker here is she alerted the show about censoring the phone number AND chastening the diction of her list after the original February air date — but when it re-aired again on April 15, there used to be NO changes to either part of the segment.
However, apparently a segment of the video announced to Facebook DID have the telephone number blurred out. Sketchy, incomplete !!
The lawsuit was pretty straightforward with its charges( below ):
“As a direct and proximate solution of the Defendant’s conduct, Ms. Pierce has suffered stress, emotional distress, discomfort, humiliation, indignation and other mental pain and suffering.”
No comment yet from Ellen’s camp, but we’ll be very interested to see how they approach this lawsuit.
Either way , now you ALL know how to declare the word ‘Titi Pierce’ … Ha !!!
