Jimmy Kimmel Sued By Rabbi

| Filed under: Legal MattersYouTubeJimmy Kimmel

It seems like a sketch, but it's true!

After splicing a YouTube video of a ranting Hasidic man into a skit to make fun of LeBron James, Jimmy Kimmel is getting sued.

Dovid Sondik filed a lawsuit on Monday in Brooklyn Supreme Court for using the video without permission.

"It has caused me difficulty and pain. Now they think I'm a joke, a comedian," said the plaintiff, who is seeking unspecified damages.

Watch the video (above) to see the whole sketch. LOLz.

    Boy, that was quick!
    The video has been removed. To be expected, really, once a lawsuit has been filed.

    it's called FAIR USE, Mr. Rabbi!!!!! Sorry hon, but I expect this video to make a re-appearance very soon! I hope you all realize how our first amendment rights to free speech are continually eroded by lawsuits such as this! Fight this BS!!!!

    What a shame — and waste of money — that this asshat is unclear on the concept of free expression. TEAM JIMMY all the way!

    Re: estebanito – You're an idiot. Someone cannot take your name/image and make a profit off of it. Every time Jimmy Kimmel airs they make money. If they used his video in a sketch he deserves to be notified or at least paid for them using it.

    Re: Shamela – ^^

    You idiots claim free speech and "free expression"..Yeah how far has that gotten us? Instead of a crowd of people helping an injured man or watch someone get jumped instead of helping they pull out their cellphones to record it. Hopefully everyone that can't get the fuck off a cellphone dies of brain cancer.

    I'll bet that if the skit involved a ranting gay man perez would jump to his defense instead of finding it funny. You're such a hypocrytical asshole perez.
