Two days ago, TMZ put up a clip of the Verne Troyer sex tape. Verne was not amused. He has now filed a $20 million lawsuit against TMZ for violating his rights by publishing and airing parts of the tape. Troyer claims the tape was stolen and somehow acquired by Kevin Platt who distributed One Night in Paris. He also wants an “injunction prohibiting further dissemination.” TMZ writes:
In the suit, filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in downtown L.A., Troyer claims TMZ violated his privacy rights and infringed on his copyright and trademark by running portions of the tape on TMZ TV and TMZ.com. He also alleges TMZ violated his right of publicity and misappropriated his name and likeness.
I want an injunction too. For the sake of my eyes. Because this is more a horror movie than it is a porno. Verne looks like a goblin. Does Verne eat her brains five minutes later? Is that even what goblins do?
