Gumby sues Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez


The flexible toy dummy, GUMBY, is suing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for appropriating his image without his consent. “It’s very disturbing to wake up and all of a sudden see yourself on national television,” said GUMBY. “To use my image, likeness, and voice for political gain is outrageous.” When asked if he would consider withrawing his lawsuit and license his image to AOC, GUMBY quietly retorted, “That is something where I just won’t bend.” The colorful lawsuit alleges right of publicity, copyright, fraud, misrepresentation, trademark and violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, and asks for injunctions and damages for emotional distress and mental anguish.
