Gangster rap and produce (my college churns out retards)

So, a pair of students from the college I attend made headlines and appeared on CNN a few nights ago.
Two brothers sacked from their grocery jobs for filming a gangster rap parody at the store now face a defamation lawsuit from their former employer.
The brothers - styling themselves as a group called Fresh Beets - hit each other in the crotch with beets at one point, and stand with bananas suggestively hanging out of their pants at another. They briefly appear with their pants at their ankles (wearing boxers). One pretends to urinate on some greens.
A&P claims the video by Mark and Matthew D'Avella motivated at least one "disgusted and distressed" customer to boycott the supermarket because of the video's "repulsive acts."

The Montvale-based chain seeks at least $1 million in compensation and demands that the D'Avellas remove "Produce Paradise" from the Internet, where it was on their Web site, and YouTube.

tl;dr - Two retards at my college made a stupid video where they molest produce at the store they work at, and are dumb enough to post it on the internet. They get slapped with a lawsuit for it. My impending degree is now probably even more worthless than it was before, because now everybody is going to equate Bloomsburg with guys that like to pee on vegetables. :P

    I really don't see how seeing or hearing of a video like that could make someone "distressed".

    I've seen the video.

    I don't think there's anything retarded about it. Just a couple guys who are making fun of a college job that neither of them particularly cares for. It's even funny in parts.

    What I think is retarded is the fact that A&P has their corporate knickers in a twist over the video; it never once mentions or alludes directly to A&P, and only in one tiny part is any identifiable A&P logo shown (I had to have that pointed out to me).

    Now, I can understand A&P firing the kids for making the video on company property...but suing them, and calling the video disgusting and distressing? That's just stupid.

    Unless, as I suspect, they only brought the lawsuit on to provoke precisely this amount of public awareness and free(ish) publicity. In which case, it's not stupid...just fucking lame.

    Does the company really expect a million dollars in compensation for something as harmless and silly as two white boys rapping about produce?

    If so, lolX2.

    You know, the more people who buy his album means the better the chance fiddy stops producing his.

    right now it's supposedly 3 to 1 in favor of kayne, but I feel 50 really needs to feel it in his ass.

    But I'm not buying it.

    Nothing to do with me not being able to handle "the rap music" that the kids are into these days. Everything to do with Kanye West being a whiny bitch, and Daft Punk being great music that didn't need some hacking talking over top of it.

    Yeah, it is a pretty good album.

    Actually I enjoy quite a few of the songs off of Graduation; and shit, 50 Cent said he'd stop making music if Kanye sells more records than Curtis (50's new CD) so I might just have to go pick up graduation to see if Curtis Jackson holds up his end of the bargain.

    yeah when i heard that 50 said he'd quit making solo music if kanye outsold him i laughed.

    boy is he in trouble

    but he only promised he'd stop making solo albums

    chances are he's just going to return to g unit

    which is bad enough without him

    In the words of the ancients, one should make his decision within the space of seven breaths. It is a matter of being determined and having the spirit to break through to the other side

    I think the fact that 50 said he'd quit if Kanye sold better is only, if anything, contributing to Kanye's sales

    I just want to point out one more time that I worked as a produce clerk for almost a year and didn't do anything inappropriate with a single piece of produce.

    Edit: Sometimes I regret not having done so, though.
