MIA and NFL fighting over 1.5 million dollar lawsuit

MIA and NFL fighting over 1.5 million dollar lawsuit

During the halftime performance of the 2012 Superbowl MIA gave the finger to a camera and mouthed “I don’t give a shit” like a petulant child. The NFL weren’t happy about this, as they’ve been struggling to rebuild their primetime reputation after the ‘wardrobe malfunction’ and numerous player infractions, and they’ve sued MIA for $1.5 million for breach of contract and damaging their image.

MIA is now taking this public, and her lawyer explained her position "She is going to go public with an explanation of how ridiculous it was for the NFL and its fans to devote such furore to this incident, while ignoring the genocide occurring in her home country and several other countries, topics she frequently speaks to…

Of course, the NFL's claimed reputation for wholesomeness is hilarious. In light of the weekly felonies committed by its stars, the bounties placed by coaches on opposing players, the homophobic and racist comments uttered by its players, the complete disregard for the health of players and the premature deaths that have resulted from same, and the raping of public entities ready to sacrifice public funds to attract teams."

It’s unclear quite what the NFL was supposed to do about genocide, or how sticking your finger up at a camera helps prevent it, but the NFL think they know "this dispute concerns a blatant, intentional and calculated attempt by M.I.A., a musical artist, to garner worldwide publicity and attention for herself by making an offensive gesture to the cameras during the Super Bowl XLVI Halftime Show performance."
