C’mon man, you gotta take that L!  You wanna sue because you’re embarrassed?!  Ridiculous.
A man shown sleeping (see pic above) on ESPN during a Yankees-Red Sox game is now suing for defamation.
Hit the jump for details…



Via IBTimes:

Andrew Rector, a Yankee fan, was caught napping in April during the match. He filed a defamation lawsuit against Dan Shulman, John Kruk, MLB and ESPN after having been made fun of his sleeping act. He was shown on live TV on April 13, with his mouth open and eyes closed. The lawsuit is worth $10 million which Rector demands to be paid for the damage the live coverage has caused to his life.

The lawsuit accused ESPN for focusing its camera on Rector while “announcers like Dan Shulman and John Kruck unleashed avalanche of disparaging words against the person or and concerning” Rector.

The lawsuit continued giving details of the alleged abuse Rector suffered.

“These words, include but not limited to “stupor, fatty, unintelligent, stupid” knowing and intending the same to be heard and listened to by millions of people all over the world, including people that know the plaintiff in person or interacted with the plaintiff,” it said.
