KNOXVILLE, Tenn.—Terri Carlin wants to make Janet Jackson's bare breast into a federal case.
Carlin filed a proposed class action lawsuit in U.S. District Court Wednesday against Jackson, singer Justin Timberlake, broadcasters MTV and CBS and their parent company, Viacom.
Carlin alleges that she and others who watched the halftime show during Sunday's Super Bowl were injured by the performers' lewd actions when Timberlake ripped off part of Jackson's costume, exposing her breast.
In the lawsuit, Carlin charges that the exposure and "sexually explicit conduct" by other performers during the show injured viewers.
"As a direct and proximate result of the broadcast of the acts, (Carlin) and millions of others saw the acts and were caused to suffer outrage, anger, embarrassment and serious injury," the lawsuit says.
But Carlin, who works in a bank, doesn't specify the type of injury allegedly suffered.
Let's get a grip now, people!
But if anyone can answer this for me:
If this woman was so offended by the entire halftime show, why hadn't she turned it off long before the breast-baring occurred?
There'd been plenty of crotch-grabbing and whatnot before the finale. She sat there humiliated and embarrassed and "injured" somehow for the several minutes of general idiocy that was the halftime show and only at the end did she decide it'd injured her?
What kind of fuckwit is this?
(And yes, I lied about having only single post about The Breast. Sue me! ;-)
