"Donkey Kong Diva" Has Lawsuit Thrown Out

Billy Mitchell apparently had sued Cartoon Network for a character he feels was based on him, and shows him in a negative light.   While its a rather silly lawsuit, Billy does have a point.    The article makes for some fine readin' either way.

I like how the article mentions BM "lives in Hollywood" and fails to mention that he lives in Hollywood, FL. Big difference.

I honestly had never heard of the character, but it is obviously a parody of Mitchell.   But hey, what do I know!?   I'm just a nerd.

Sure, the lawsuit is silly, but that article is very poorly written with regards to objectivity. That aforementioned omission that BM lives in Hollywood, *Florida* is a case in point. The article is blatantly painting BM as an out of touch jerk from Hollywood who has nothing better to do than waste money suing Cartoon Network.
