Chubby Checker Sues Hewlett Packard Over App Using His Name To Refer To One’s Manhood
The “Chubby Checker” app gives women a way to try to figure out the length of a man’s manhood, and that is not sitting well with the King of the Twist.
The actual Chubby Checker, whose real name is Ernest Evans, is suing Hewlett-Packard for half a billion dollars because, apparently, measuring genitalia is not what Checker does “if daddy is sleepin’ and mama ain’t around.”
Checker, 71, fears the app will associate his stage name with obscene and sexual images, reported webOS Nation.
The lawsuit claims that the rock and roll pioneer “received no compensation for the unauthorized use of the Chubby Checker name and trademark.”
