The absolute worst sports fan in America has officially filed a lawsuit against the best player on his favorite team, Derrick Rose. From HopHop365:
A 25-year-old Peoria Illinois man filed a lawsuit Thursday against Chicago Bulls Superstar Derrick Rose. Matthew Thompson, a self-described long-time Bulls fan, and electrician claims Rose missing the entire 2012-2013 NBA regular season has caused him to have mental breakdowns and emotional distress, which ultimately led to obesity issues.
According to reports, Thompson claims Rose displayed negligent behavior by refusing to return to the court, despite having been cleared by team doctors. He blames his health issues on the MVP’s refusal to return.
This frivolous lawsuit epitomizes the entitlement mentality of so many. This man’s inability to handle the struggles of a sports team led him to blame a highly talented professional for not entertaining him to his liking. This is sickening. Buck up, dude! The lawyer(s) taking up this case should absolutely serve some sort of penalty for filing such a frivolous lawsuit. Something should be done to prevent this sort of lawsuit from ever happening. It is a mockery to the US justice system.
Although I was apathetic before, now I’ll be looking forward to watching Derrick Rose overcome his injury and return to the court. I am pulling for him and hoping the report from HipHop365 is false.
