Val Chmerkovskiy from Dancing With The Stars is being sued for 6 million dollars because he posted a meme on Facebook.
Wait, there’s more.
Chmerkovskiy is being sued by a 16 year old girl with down syndrome, because the meme he shared featured a photo of the girl and has caused her “emotional distress”.
The meme in question is from a photo taken back in 2008, subtitled “Everything That Is Wrong With America”. It became a meme two years ago, and was posted to Chmerkovskiy’s Facebook page 3 weeks ago. Supposedly, the girl’s mom messaged the “DWTS” alum, asking for it to be taken down, and he refused.
The family is suing for 6 million, plus 6 million from CBS and 600k from the actual photographer.
What do you think of the whole situation?
