Couple Sues McDonalds for Stolen Naked Photos
An American man is suing McDonalds for approximately £2 million in damages for taking nude photos of his wife from his mobile phone and posting them online, after he accidentally left his mobile at a McDonalds in Arkansas. When he returned to pick up the phone (edit: he called first), the employees claim to have kept it under good watch for him. But clearly, not before uploading the 640x480s to FlickR in the back office munching on french fries.
His wife was certainly not 'lovin' it', when she started getting rude calls after her photos, including her name, address and phone number, were posted online.
But instead of taking responsibility for their own actions, the Shermans are living up to the American standard by suing the burger flippers, the franchise owner, and the restaurant manager for 'emotional distress, embarrassment, and punitive damages' because they can no longer eat there without being recognised. The incident has apparently caused them a loss of earnings, and they also need to recover the cost for moving to a new home... as if that would make the photos disappear. McDonalds has refused to comment. The photos have been taken offline. If you look hard enough, you may find something, but I suggest you don't. There's a reason why they eat at McDonalds.
