*What would you say if I told you that there’s a pimp out there that has sued Nike because the Air Jordans he wore as he stomped a man’s face in had no warning label?
Uh huh. Apparently, Sirgiorgiro Clardy, a Portland, Ore. pimp, feels the sneaker giant should pay him $100 million because they failed to put a warning label on the shoes that explained they could be used as a deadly weapon.
Don’t you seriously wonder how long it took him to think up this particular hustle?
His 100-year sentence is for second-degree assault and other crimes which include beating one of his prostitutes to the point that she bled from her ears.
And he says its Nike’s fault.
According to the Oregonian, Clardy’s lawsuit reads,
“Under product liability there is a certain standard of care that is required to be upheld by potentially dangerous product …” Clardy wrote in his complaint. “Do (sic) to the fact that these defendants named in this Tort claim failed to warn of risk or to provide an adequate warning or instruction it has caused personal injury in the likes of mental suffering.”
I swear, we’re good! But we couldn’t make this stuff up if we tried!
Back in June, 2012, KATU reported that Sirgiorgiro was arrested as part of a sex trafficking bust. He was arrested along with Princess Dawn Talley-Stevenson, who was suspected of prostitution.
