People will sue for the craziest things and we will just have to add this that list. According to TMZ, teen inmates in Cook County Juvenile Detention center in Chicago are suing the Fox hit show Empire. They’re upset because they were put on lock down for two weeks during the last season of Empire during the taping that Terrance Howard and Chris Rock did at the center. During this time, they were not allowed to leave their cells, could not have visitations, go to the library or Chapel. They claim it was not as beneficial as it should’ve been.
Empire is very profitable, charging up to $750,000 per 30 sec commercial and the teenagers would like a portion of it. They must be out of their mind! How should they benefit from breaking the law? It’s not like anyone was hurt or deprived, nor was their face used in any of the episodes. It’s just like if they were having construction in the detention center, they are not going to pay them for having to move them into another location or not allow them to certain areas. Basically they have too much time on their hands to have come up with this. Lol The class action lawsuit is against FOX, Cook County and the warden.
Empire Season 3 Kicks off September 21st. Make sure you join me every Wednesday & Thursday on FOX 26 Morning News for all things Empire!
