Bad news, SAY folks. Shaq Amongst Yuhselvez is being taken down.
It seems like just this morning I was announcing this new change to the Talk Amongst Yourself blog, and here we are. Why must we change back to our old ways? Legal action, that’s why.
Earlier this evening I received an email from Shaq’s lawyer, Jamie Casino. And if you’ve never heard of him, you should watch the video below.
Anyway, I got the following email:
CEASE AND DESIST
Mr. Giant Boy Detective
Dear Mr. Detective:
This law firm represents Shaquille O’Neal. If you are represented by legal counsel, please direct this letter to your attorney immediately and have your attorney notify us of such representation. But you don’t seem like someone who would have a layer. Or much money. So listen up.
You are hereby directed to
CEASE AND DESIST ALL DEFAMATION OF
SHAQUILLE O’NEAL’S CHARACTER AND REPUTATION.
Shaquille is an educated, respected professional in the community. He has spent years serving the community in his profession and building a positive reputation (as well as rapping and acting career). Shaquille has learned that you have engaged in promoting ridiculous, hilarious, and outdated information about him.
Under Minnesota law, it is unlawful to engage in defamation of another’s character and reputation. We’re not sure if you operate out of Minnesota, but we’re pretty sure.
Accordingly, we demand that you immediately cease and desist your unlawful defamation of Shaquille on your site. Seriously. Stop.
If you do not comply with this cease and desist demand within this time period, Mr. O’Neal has vowed to “dunk on you and all your authors. Night and day, for the rest of eternity.” How will he do this? He refuses to say.
Before taking these steps, however, my client wished to give you one opportunity to discontinue your illegal conduct by complying with this demand within one day. I recommend that you consult with an attorney regarding this matter. But once again, you probably don’t have one. If you or your attorney have any questions, please contact me directly.
Jamie Casino and his Hammer
So... back to TAY we go. Lord knows I don’t want people getting dunked on for eternity on my conscience. I hope you all understand.
