M.I.A Is Not Getting Away For Her Middle Finger Superbowl Halftime Moment From Two Years Ago!
M.I.A. performed at the Super Bowl halftime show two years ago and if you thought she got away with flipping the bird during her performance on stage with Madonna, you're wrong.
The NFL has reportedly been trying to sue her for the past 18 months for $1.5 million dollars and an apology.
Howard King, M.I.A.’s lawyer is the one that came forward with this news saying, “Of course, the NFL’s claimed reputation for wholesomeness is hilarious,” King tells THR, “in light of the weekly felonies committed by its stars, the bounties placed by coaches on opposing players, the homophobic and racist comments uttered by its players, the complete disregard for the health of players and the premature deaths that have resulted from same, and the raping of public entities ready to sacrifice public funds to attract teams.”
King adds, “We encourage people to submit their examples of how the actions of the NFL, its stars, coaches, advertisers, broadcasters, team doctors and owners have damaged or destroyed any vestiges of any reputation for wholesomeness ever enjoyed by the NFL. These submissions, which we plan to use to bolster M.I.A’s defense, will help balance the playing field, as they very well could eliminate the burden of undertaking a formal survey of the history of unwholesome behavior, can be made to the M.I.A defense team by email to NFL@khpblaw.com.”
