Gawker Sued By Fred Durst Over Video
Gawker is in trouble over hosting the Fred Durst sex video (his phone was hacked) ...
Honestly, though, we don't know why you're so mad at us. The situation is really rather simple. Someone sent us a link to a video of your penis, we went into shock, and we shared it with the world for about 2 hours. Then we wept, found God, took a hot bath, and removed the video from our site.
But nothing we do is ever good enough for you, is it? Your exotic Californian lawyers sent us a cease-and-desist order on Monday, 3 days after we had already taken the video down. You were still hurting and we understood, but now you've gone and filed suit against us. We don't get it - we complied before you even got around to wasting paper on us, and now you want to take away what few shekels we have.
Gawker, run by Nick Denton is famous for Gizmodo among other blogs.
Jason Calacanis, who heads Weblogs Inc of Engadget fame is proclaiming the End of Gawker - and it could well be if Fred "grab my ass" Durst of limpbizkit stupidity doesn't back off like a good little foot stomper and deal with it like a.... bizkit?
