WEIRD NEWS: Jackass Sues Over Fall
A Florida woman is suing a Mexican restaurant for negligence after she mounted a sombrero-wearing donkey statue and fell off.
Kimberly Bonn claims she broke her back when she slid off the donkey, which she’d climbed on to take a selfie. Bonn argues in her lawsuit that El Jalisco restaurant encouraged customers to climb up on the donkey but provided no steps or a ladder. But others argue that Bonn is the real jackass, and fans of the restaurant are rallying to support the donkey.
A Facebook page has been set up for the donkey, and supporters are encouraged to “stand up for this poor donkey as he prepares for the fight of his life against a powerful legal entity who is ‘for the people.'”
