Here's a video of the young trucks talking about the Fox News Anchor Sues Hasbro Over Toy.
Talking about the toy, it's a plastic hamster toy which has a physical resemblance to Faulkner's traditional professional appearance which includes its complexion, eye shape, and makeup design. The plastic toy hamster was named Harris Faulkner, which in the ended created a lot of controversies.
After the case was finalized, the toy is no more to be found for sales. But kids who bought the toy may still have it. She filed the lawsuit in New Jersey Federal Court demanding $5 million. The company said the toy doesn't even look like her and the same name is not enough to state a valid right of publicity claim, but settled anyway for an undisclosed amount.
Harris Faulkner, the hamster not the news anchor, above, is no longer manufactured or sold by Hasbro, who ponied up an undisclosed settlement
Hasbro and Faulkner released a statement and said the lawsuit was 'settled amicably,' although they didn't release details. The statement said,
'The 'Harris Faulkner' toy is no longer manufactured or sold by Hasbro,'. 'However, since there still may be 'Harris Faulkner' toys or packaging with the 'Harris Faulkner' name in the stream of commerce, Ms. Faulkner reiterates that she has not endorsed or approved this product.'
Many of her fans even expressed their shock regarding this lawsuit as the hamster was quite lovely. One of her fans even said 'Good God, Harris! It should have been a compliment. Like you, it is so adorable.'
Different people different opinions and we respect Faulkner's decision of filing a lawsuit because that is what she felt was right and didn't like the way someone was using her name and appearance. BRAVO Harris!! Best of luck for your future.
