Attorneys for an actor hired by Nintendo to don a Donkey Kong costume for an event at the Los Angeles Zoo said he is suing the gaming giant after suffering a serious heart condition.
Only in America...
Was thinking that but after reading the article it kinda seems fair although it sounds like the guy was stupid like an ape in stayed in his costume. He should of gone "stuff this" jump outta the suit in had a break in cooled down for awhile, if they wouldn't allow it, just give them the costume back in do them for not letting you have regular breaks maybe unfair dismissal
I'm sorry but, did you mean to write "and" or "'n"? I apologize, seeing all of those "in" was kinda distracting. Anyway, it's always up to the individual to decide if they are willing to risk their health or not. It is a law pretty much everywhere that one is allowed to put their own health first and refuse to do a job if their health is at risk. I doubt this would fly in a court case against Nintendo.
I don't know, I feel it's a company's responsibility to provide a safe work environment for their employees. This was his job, the company should have made the research to make sure his job was safe and that he had adequate cooling.
A year and a half later? *out of work actor*
so he believe Nintendo gave him the serious heart condition
Dance monkey dance!
i swear these days you can look at someone the wrong way and they will try and sue you
DID YOU JUST SWEAR?! YOU TRIGGERED ME! Don't you know that I have PTSD and am trying to rebuild my life?! That's it, I'm going to sue you. See you in court for causing malicious emotional distress! I'm going to sue you for the whole penny you're worth!
nintendo should sue him ...
You got a heart condition and you gonna wear DK Costume in a hot ass Zoo, Nintendo should sue this buffoon
It was Nintendo's idea they should've had some better guidelines in the first place. ;)
It was his idea to not listen to logic and take the damned suit off. It's worth losing a job in this instance, and I SINCERELY doubt that the guy in charge of him would have denied him his right to a break if he came out of that costume swimming in his own juices.XD
This guy is bananas. I'm so sorry.
Ten bucks says he had preexisting conditions in his health that contributed to this FAR MORE than wearing the costume did. His overall health before the costume likely wasn't too good to begin with.
