This is almost as satisfying to see as the crypto lawsuit that was filed last month against a bunch of other idiotic celebrities. This one is about some nonsense called “NFT” (don’t bother trying to understand what it is, because, like crypto, reading the definition of an NFT only makes it sound even more fake), and the scammers being sued include Jimmy Fallon, Justin Bieber, Paris Hilton, Kevin Hart, Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna, and Madonna’s manager Guy Oseary. Via Deadline:
[A] new class action filed in federal court aims to take a pantheon of big names to the financial woodshed over shilling Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs for hidden payoffs.
“Defendants’ promotional campaign was wildly successful, generating billions of dollars in sales and re-sales,” says the lawsuit from Adonis Real and Adam Titcher filed on December 8 in U.S. District Court in California. ”The manufactured celebrity endorsements and misleading promotions regarding the launch of an entire BAYC ecosystem (the so-called Otherside metaverse) were able to artificially increase the interest in and price of the BAYC NFTs during the Relevant Period, causing investors to purchase these losing investments at drastically inflated prices,” the jury trial seeking 10-claim suit added.
Represented by San Diego-based attorney John T. Jasnoch, plaintiffs Real and Titcher have defined the potential Class in what could be a very pricey action as all those who invested in “Yuga Financial Products” between April 23, 2021 and now. They are looking for “actual, general, special, incidental, statutory, punitive, and consequential damages and restitution.”
A lot of the celebs used defendants NBC Universal and Jimmy Fallon’s horrid talk show to try and pull off the NFT ruse for Yuga Financial, including worthless whore Paris Hilton, as seen here after the 3:30 mark:
You have to love clown Fallon talking about how NFTs are “a hard thing to explain to a lot of people.” Uhh, yeah, because you’re trying to explain something that literally doesn’t exist.
