Breitbart: The family of a teenager who Pittsburgh Steelers star Sean Davis filmed working at a Chik-fil-A and then ridiculed on social media, is suing the player because they say the boy was bullied at school due to the posts.
The 24-year-old Steeler took the video of the youngster working with his family at the fast food restaurant’s drive-thru in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania. Davis was apparently upset that his order took too long to arrive, and posted the video of the worker to ridicule the outlet’s wait time.
“Chick-fil-A got little kids. This kid like eight years old. No wonder the lines be so long at Chick-fil-A,” Davis said on the video, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reported.
The lawsuit claims Davis libeled the boy and also charges cyberbullying, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and slander. The family says that Davis posted his video to Snapchat on either Dec. 11 or Dec. 13.
The family also accused the player of misrepresenting the worker’s age. The lawsuit claims that their son is “very small for his age, regarding his small stature and youthful appearance.”
The family further alleges that the video “incorporated an emoji of a face laughing until tears were flowing out of its eyes, representing how funny looking he thought minor-plaintiff was.” MORE
