Summary: Ellen Degeneres made an obvious breast joke on her talk show, and now she’s facing a lawsuit.

A sensitive woman is suing Ellen Degeneres because the comedian made a bad boob joke. Now the woman is seeking monetary damages for intentional infliction of emotional distress. She also wants the joke to be prohibited from ever airing again, not seeming to be aware of the lasting power of the internet or the Streisand Effect.

During the daytime talk show The Ellen Degeneres Show, Degeneres showed one of the woman’s real estate signs in a segment called What’s wrong with these ads…and these signs? Degeneres then pronounced the woman’s name as “Titty Pierce” when it is actually Titi (Tee Tee) Pierce. The woman, whose name is of Nigerian origin, said she faced “immediate ridicule” after the breast joke was made.

“In all of her 35 years of life, no one has ever referred to Ms. Pierce as ‘titty’ until the Defendant did so on February 22, 2016 on national television,” the lawsuit said.

Pierce is also suing the show’s producers and Warner Brothers Entertainment, which is the parent company of the show. Pierce claims that show producers did not blur out her phone number, which was on display in her public sign, and she said she later received “ridiculing and harassing” calls while she was at a funeral. It is noted that on the web clip, the phone number is blurred out.

Do you think Titi has a legitimate case or will she win nothing for her inability to take a joke? Let us know in the comments below.
