Why is it that having a pile of money just seems to make you want more? I bet Rockstar didn't look at her twice when they put in that random event.

I'm going to sue Rockstar for ripping off the color of my hair. :miranda:

 

Seriously, why are they even trying. They know that they won't win, they just want the money and fame (which they won't get).

I know an actor that should definitely sue because of their use of his likeness. His name is Ned Luke.

Come to think of it, I should sue Rockstar. They used my department's name without my permission, and they shown us in a bad light. There's no police brutality here at the LSPD, and none of us are corrupt, promise! :(

 

And they revealed the existence of our top secret police station at Mt. Chiliad. Those bastards. 

 

I'm going to sue them for 69 billion

This is only because she wanted the role of Gerald. Just give her $10 worth of cashcards and then there will be no more tears.

Nah the gov't wont sue R* because they paid their taxes properly :p

 

@ Gta_V_Fan_101 it too bad I cant like your comparison post 100 times! :D

 

It always happens, its too easy to sue ppl over the most frivolous of things. You can hardly speak a word or do anything these days w/out ppl being offended to the point of a lawsuit or even murder, just sick.

I think ppl need to grow-up and get over themselves. I found this so comical in the article,

"The court papers ask for $20 million in compensation and another $20 million in punitive damages."

For punitive "....The usual terms that characterize conduct justifying these damages include bad faith, fraud, malice, oppression, outrageous, violent, wanton, wicked, and reckless. These aggravating circumstances typically refer to situations in which the defendant acted intentionally, maliciously, or with utter disregard for the rights and interests of the plaintiff."

Wow really, R* behaved in such a manner towards her?! :rol:

Say, I wonder if she can sue herself for being "stupid," I think that if she has an incompetent-enough-of-an-attorney, she'd at least win that suit... :lol:

I think I have as much of a right to sue as her. I sit around playing video games and masturbating all day.

1. Her story isn't unique
2. Sammy Bottino is known for 6 years already (GTA IV) and NOW she's suing?
3. Unlike her, Sammy Bottino's daughter is pretty, they don't look alike, but she does look like this person...

Well, we can deport Sam and Dan, right? And from what I know, those commies haven't coughed up at least 10/20% of that $1 billion to the government. ;)

LOL The country already is full of pigs. It's been that way for years. Also no i'm not sharing my BBQ Pork Ribs with you. So stop asking and stay out of my Kool Aid. If American's want to be fat and lazy, then that's their choice. People who make up those stupid useless studies, have to much time on their hands.

I can kinda see her point; but I think the point she has missed entirely is that GTA has become the epitome of satire with recent instalments and the Antonia Bottino random event was pretty much a jab at how there's a TV show about everything now, mob daughters included. there are definite similarities but how can you get famous off the back of a TV show and not expect people to take the piss? especially a videogame, which most of the fanbase would giggle at a dick joke, if anything Rockstar deserve moderate praise for parodying the entire smartphone generation without becoming condescending parents saying things like "don't watch too much TV or your eyes will go square".

This stupid woman is a parasite who got famous because she's the daughter of a murderer. She didn't get enough money and attention from her crappy book, or appearances on that HIDEOUS "Mob Wives" reality garbage, so she is trying to sue because her pathetic life happens to resemble a STEREOTYPICAL character's story. I'm so sick and tired of "reality" television, and the garbage it produces in the form of PHONY stars.

Calm down man...you know, what most are missing? They don't look at others. Some lazy Americans are rich, and have a lot of cool things but they do nothing with it...why don't you donate it to Africa then?
