Chubby Checker Sues Creators Of Penis-Measuring App
AV Club reports that Chubby Checker is suing the makers of a penis-measuring app called “The Chubby Checker”.
The app was designed by Hewlett-Packard subsidiary Palm, Inc. It was created to help women who were “wondering what the size of there [sic] member is.” Using shoe size, it estimates penis length in metric and imperial measurements. The app is fairly unpopular with only 84 downloads and has since been removed.
Checker, best known for “The Twist”, claims the app has done “irreparable damage and harm” to his name, causing people to associate it with “the obscene sexual connotation and images” of men’s erect penises.
His lawyer, Willie Gary, added: “This lawsuit is about preserving the integrity and legacy of a man who has spent years working hard at his musical craft and has earned the position of one of the greatest musical entertainers of all time.“
