Reuters is reporting that troubled actress Lindsay Lohan is suing E-Trade for a $100 million over a Super Bowl commercial that improperly invoked her “likeness, name, characterization, and personality” without permission, violating her right of privacy.” From Reuters…
In her lawsuit filed Monday in a Nassau County, New York state court, the 23-year-old actress sought $50 million of compensatory damages and $50 million of exemplary damages. She also demanded that E*Trade stop running the ad and turn over all copies to her.
While Lohan is a walking hot mess, she does NOT maintain the same “single-name recognition” as Oprah or Madonna, as The New York Post reports. Hell, when I think of famous people named Lindsay, the names that first come to mind are Davenport (female tennis player), Wagner (the Bionic Woman), and Buckingham (Fleetwood Mac).
More from Reuters…
In the ad, a baby boy apologizes to his girlfriend through a video chat for not calling her the night before because he was on E*Trade.
The camera switches to the girl, who asks suspiciously, “And that milkaholic Lindsay wasn’t over?”
It then switches back to the boy, who uneasily replies “Lindsay?” before another baby girl, presumably Lindsay, moves into the frame and asks, “Milk-a-what?”
Just another reason we need tort reform!
