A former Big Brother contestant is suing a porn company for sending him some unsolicited porn:
Kent Blackwelder, who appeared in Big Brother 2 in 2001 and now runs a sandwich shop, has filed a federal lawsuit against Delaware-based Specialty Publications which promotes adult gay material.
The lawsuit claims that the mailing was "unsolicited" and that his 12-year old daughter opened the envelope that said on the outside "free DVD" thinking it was from the Disney Corp.
Instead, the envelope contained the DVD "Titan Men's Farm Fresh," and promotional material for a gay adult magazine.
The lawsuit says that the daughter was "horribly shocked" and when she showed it to her father he was "shocked, disgusted and enraged."
Blackwelder's seeking around $4 million in the suit. I know that those numbers are usually huge and meaningless, but I have to wonder what the damage is here that's worth any amount of money. I'm sure that this girl still has enough food to eat, has access to whatever medical care she had before, is still going to school, and isn't sitting in a corner for weeks on end mumbling "Farm Fresh" repeatedly.
I'm also wondering what porn company out there just sends people free, unsolicited DVD's. Something tells me that there's something Mr. Blackwelder doesn't want to admit about why he received this DVD....
