A 13-year-old sued his parents for being born a redhead...true or false?
Sometimes a story comes along that just can't be real, right? Or is it?
Well this is one of them...
According to World News Daily Report, A redheaded child is suing his parents for $2 million for being ginger.
But, is it true?
The story goes:
It ain't easy being green… or red apparently.
At least according to Liam Murphy, a 13-year-old boy who is suing his parents for $2 million for being born a ginger in a "Wrongful Life" lawsuit.
While many a redhead is bullied and made fun of, hair color isn't exactly "chosen" by the parents, kid. Don't they teach science in junior high?
Sure, the parents are both redheads too, but if they were satisfied enough with their strawberry topped lives to bring a new one into the world, can't this freckle-faced teen learn something from them?
But no, the teen says they planted a "voluntary prejudice" on him with the very probable chance that his life would be a shear misery thanks to his carrot topped cranium.
For his recessive burden, the kid is asking for $1.35 million in "pain and suffering" and $800,000 on top of that for his "loss of enjoyment of life."
At just 13, this kid must be a real punching bag for his classmates. Perhaps he can run to the drug store with his allowance and grab a box of brunette hair dye and go about living among the other humans.
His lawyer, James Franklin O'Conner (a ginger too, maybe?), is confident about winning the case citing scientific data about the real social troubles redheads must deal with on a constant basis. Rejection, name calling, and the like were all things Murphy's parents "knew" would happen, but they procreated anyway.
The thing is, the parents don't even have this kind of money, even if Murphy wins the case. Dad is an electrician and mom is… wait for it… a hairdresser! A ginger hairdresser – and clients actually allow her to style their dos without the fear of "cooties" or cross-genetic contamination.
So.... is it true or fake?
