At least it’s a cute hamster?
Fox News host Harris Faulkner is suing Hasbro Inc. for $5,000,000, after she discovered they have a toy hamster with her name.
Faulkner sued Hasbro Inc. this week in U.S. District Court in New Jersey for “creating, manufacturing, and distributing for sale a plastic toy hamster named ‘Harris Faulkner'” as part of its “Pet Pawsabilities” toy line.
Although Hasbro doesn’t sell the toy any more, Faulkner’s attorney submitted the above photo as evidence.
Lawyers said the toy “willfully and wrongfully appropriated Faulkner’s unique and valuable name and distinctive persona for its own financial gain.”
Harris says the company never got her permission to use her name, and as an award-winning journalist she is offended that she was made into a rodent.
