Here’s the actual press release from the 9 “aggrieved fans” of Clay Aiken who are considering filing a class action suit because they found out he’s gay and think it was false advertising to market him to women. And it’s funny stuff:
“As consumers, we feel ripped off. It is obvious now that the private Clay is very different from the manufactured packaged public Clay that was marketed to us” said a spokesman for the group. “We believe that this was absolutely fraudulent and that we may have actionable recourse against the record company”.
Presently, the group continues to interview legal representation and deliberates over appropriate legal standing before filing any suit. Among the premises being considered toward RCA Records and corporate parent Sony/BMG are False Advertising on the basis of Misrepresentation and Bait and Switch. A potential FTC Complaint is also being measured.
Hey, I bet Debbie Schlussel is available. Not only will she file the suit for you, she’ll file to intervene in the ACLU’s lawsuit against the NSA – buy one bit of rank stupidity, get one free! But here’s my favorite part of the press release:
Anticipating backlash from Aiken’s famously militant fan base, these former fans ranging in ages, occupational backgrounds, and geographic locales have elected to keep their identities anonymous contingent upon any legal filings.
Famously militant fanbase? Oh yeah, those roving hordes of Clay Aiken fans are striking fear into the hear of god-fearing people everywhere. Forget Osama Bin Laden, it’s those 14 year old girls you gotta watch out for. If word gets out, those 9 women will, ironically, wish they were invisible.
