Pink slime manufacturers have had major BEEF with ABC News after they told the truth behind the icky additive they put in their meat.
And as a result, a U.S. beef processing company sued them, then sent the suit to Federal Court… and now, the director of a South Dakota-based processing plant, Bruce Smith is suing the news agency because he was one of 750 employees that were let go after consumers saw that the meat was unhealthy.
Bruce filed his suit on Tuesday in the Dakota County District Court in Nebraska against Diane Sawyer, TV Chef Jamie Oliver, reporter Jim Avila and of course ABC News.
But he's not even demanding much. All the director is asking for is $70,000 because he wants the case to remain in the courthouse, he said:
“If I sued for more, I would likely be forced to move the case to federal court in Omaha, Neb. I want the people I have sued … I want them here in the locality where the damage is done."
Welp, we can completely understand why Smith is going bananas, but at the end of the day… pink slime is gross and we're definitely NOT hating on ABC for revealing the ugly truth.
As for Bruce, we hope he finds another job.
