Volleyball Team Fined For Anti-Gay Fans

Brazilian volleyball team Cruzeiro is being fined after its fans chanted homophobic taunts at the other team, which had a gay player, during a match.

The team will have to pay $30,000 because of approximately 3,000 fans’ homophobic chant directed at a player named Michael, who at the time was in the closet.

Michael came out soon after the game. As a show of support, his team wore pink shirts while warming up for a playoff game!

SHAME, SHAME, SHAME on those fans. Seriously… WTF.

Football Player Fined Thousands Over Socks

Antoine Winfield of the Minnesota Vikings was fined by the NFL this week over the height of his socks.

The price? A whopping $10,000.

For socks!? Ridiculous!

If they're going to fine them over something like that, the least they could do is use that money to buy clothes for those who are less fortunate.

Men Fined For Wearing Makeup During Fashion Show

sudanese-men-convicted-for-wearing-makeup-during-fashion-show.jpg

Ridiculous!

On Wednesday, 7 amateur male models and a female makeup artist in Sudan were convicted of indecency after police accused them of wearing and applying makeup at the Sudanese Next Top Model Fashion Show held back June.

A lawyer for the group explained:

"The court thought that they were indecently dressed … The judge thought that wearing makeup could be offensive for men and allowing a woman to put makeup on men was against the law."

Seriously!?

Rather than the maximum punishment of 40 lashings, the judge ordered all eight to pay a fine of 200 Sudanese pounds or roughly $85 USD for the offense.

Thoughts???

Will Ferrell And Larry David Lose Case Against JPMorgan!

will-ferrell-and-larry-david-fined-after-losing-case-against-jpmorgan

Ouch!

Will Ferrell and Larry David have both not only lost an $18 million arbitration case against JPMorgan, but were in return fined $634,000 for "discovery abuse and failure to comply with the forum's discovery rules!"

The two funnymen were aiding business manager Matt Lichtenberg in his case against the brokerage firm, claiming "unathorized and unsuitable purchases of unspecified preferred securities," but the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, which handles their complaints, ruled against them!

In FINRA's decision letter, they explained:

"After three motions to compel discovery by [JPMorgan] and three orders from the panel, [members of Lichtenberg's team] were still supplying ordered documents on the afternoon of the second day of the evidentiary hearing."

David and Ferrell must also pay $600,000 to JPMorgan for legal fees and $12,000 for arbitration costs.

Double ouch!
