Fox News television personality Harris Faulkner is taking legal action against Hasbro after the toy maker’s release of a “Littlest Pet Shop” Hamster. Her lawyers claim the TV reader is upset because the tiny plastic hamster steals her “distinctive persona.”
“Hasbro’s manufacture, sale, and distribution of the Harris Faulkner Hamster Doll is extremely concerning and distressing to Faulkner,” the complaint states.
“In addition to its prominent and unauthorized use of Faulkner’s name, elements of the Harris Faulkner Hamster Doll also bear a physical resemblance to Faulkner’s traditional professional appearance, in particular tone of its complexion, the shape of its eyes, and the design of its eye makeup.”
Because Ms. Faulkner is clearly a light-complected round-eyed, blue-eyed rodent… and is that a mohawk on plastic Harris?
