It’s inevitable: once you start making Lady Gaga level cheddar, the Noid is going to show up to steal as much of your cheesy deliciousness as he possibly can. After the earthquake/tsunami hit Japan, musical salad tong-wearer Lady Gaga endorsed Livestrong-style rubber bracelets to benefit relief efforts. But the only thing the proceeds relieved were the bills for the set of the Born This Way tour sets. Now comes the suing. Reports PopEater:
A Southfield, Michigan based law firm, 1-800-LAW-FIRM, recently filed a class action lawsuit against mother monster for pocketing a portion of the proceeds from the sale of her ‘We Pray For Japan’ wristbands, benefiting relief for Japan’s March earthquake — proceeds gathered from customers who assumed their money was going directly to Japan.
Although I don’t doubt Gaga skimmed money off the top of her rubber bracelet sales (more likely, the shady business fatcats handling the deal did), I can’t really take any suit filed by something called 1-800-LAW-FIRM seriously. It might as well be Gimpy Joe’s House of Appeals, located in a former Checkers on Route 4. “Our summonses smell like Big Bufords!”
