NBC & Jay Leno Sued Over Mitt Romney Jab

Because this is what the fourth-ranked network needs right now — another lawsuit!

Last week, Jay Leno laid into Mitt Romney about his 1% lifestyle (look who's talking!) and joked that all Mitt's $$$ has gotten him the ultimate summer home: the Sikh holy shrine Golden Temple in Amritsar, India.

Well, there are some in the Sikh community who didn't find Jay's jab all that humorous. In fact, Dr. Randeep Dhillon of Bakersfield, CA actually filed a lawsuit on behalf of himself and the Bol Punjabi All Regions Community Organization, charging Jay and the network of libel.

In his suit, he explains that it was defamatory to use Sikhs and their holiest place of worship as a means to poke fun at a politician. The suit charges that Leno’s use of the photo of the temple “hurt the sentiments of all Sikh people in addition to those of the plaintiff.” Because of that, Dr. Dhillon and his organization are seeking general, special and punitive damages as well as court costs.

You can seek it all you want, but we doubt you'll get as much as think you deserve. NBC has already taken the clip down from their site, so that's all taken care of. Now, they'll probably just make a donation to high official in the religious order and call it a day. And you know what? That sounds fair to us!
