Pharrell is being sued? Well, kinda!! His Billionaire Boys Club clothing line is being sued by a blind man according to reports!! It’s being reported that the clothing line is being sued for not accommodating the blind and visually impaired customers!! Huh?! Well we peeped the story over at theJasmineBrand. According to them:
the suit was filed this month by Victor Lopez and states,
“Plaintiff brings this civil rights action against BILLIONAIRE BOYS CLUB, LLC AND BILLIONAIRE BOYS CLUB AND ICE CREAM RETAIL OPERATIONS, LLC (“Defendant” or “COMPANY”) for its failure to design, construct, maintain, and operate its website to be fully accessible to and independently usable by Plaintiff and other blind or visually-impaired people. Defendant’s denial of full and equal access to its website, and therefore denial of its products and services offered thereby and in conjunction with its physical locations, is a violation of Plaintiff’s rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”)….
The suit says that the clothing line’s website, WWW.BBCICECREAM.COM (the “Website” or
“Defendant’s website”), is not equally accessible to blind and visually- impaired consumers, it violates the ADA. Plaintiff seeks a permanent injunction to cause a change in Defendant’s corporate policies, practices, and procedures so that Defendant’s website will become and remain accessible to blind and visually-impaired consumers.
