Unhappy about being described as the manliest man ever, Chuck Norris has sued book publisher, Penguin Group, for a book titled, “400 Facts About the World’s Greatest Human,” which lists mythical facts about the now cult actor. Also named in the suit is Ian Spector who both authored the book and created two websites dedicated to making fun of Chuck’s tough guy persona.
“Some of the ‘facts’ in the book are racist, lewd or portray Mr. Norris as engaged in illegal activities,” the lawsuit alleges.
“Defendants have misappropriated and exploited Mr. Norris’s name and likeness without authorization for their own commercial profit,” said the lawsuit.
The suit, filed in Manhattan federal court, seeks unspecified monetary damages for trademark infringement, unjust enrichment and privacy rights.
I got a new one for Ian Spector. “Chuck Norris doesn’t sue. He whines like a bitch, then sues.”
