Fox News may be dominating the ratings in this country, but one of their anchors has found herself in some trouble.
Harris Faulkner, cohost of the hit Fox show Outnumbered, has filed a $5 million lawsuit against the toy manufacturer Hasbro because she says a plastic hamster in their Littlest Pet Shop line infringes on her likeness. According to The Antimedia, Hasbro designers named the little canary colored inanimate rodent “Harris Faulkner,” but some say that is the only thing the toy has in common with the Fox anchor.
Faulkner’s lawyers, however, claim that the anchor has suffered “commercial and emotional damage” because of the toy. They say that there is indeed a physical resemblance between Faulkner and the toy.
“Harris Faulkner, the uniquely named, acclaimed veteran journalist and author, has worked for decades to establish and maintain her personal brand and laudable professional reputation,” the anchor’s lawyers said. “(Hasbro) willfully and wrongfully appropriated Faulkner’s unique and valuable name and distinctive persona for its own financial gain.”
Liberals have been quick to scoff at this lawsuit, but we stand by Harris! This appears to be yet another example of a liberal company trying to make a fool out of a conservative Fox anchor.
