Back in February, Old Navy started airing this ridiculous commercial (seen below), staring Canadian pop singer, actress, choreographer and model Melissa Molinaro. It was pretty unremarkable, and no one really made a fuss about it.
So why are we talking about a commercial from 5 months ago? Because Kim Kardashian has filed a lawsuit against Old Navy for “using a look-alike” in the ad. Kim K is hoping to recover as much as $20 Million from the national retailer!
Kardashian issued a statement, saying, “I’ve worked hard to support the products I’m personally involved with and that I believe in.”
Here’s where it gets interesting. The “stand-in” in question, Melissa Molinaro, is currently dating Saints RB Reggie Bush. Kim’s ex. It’s pretty obvious why she’s filing suit, she’s just jealous that Bush ended up with a prettier, more talented girl.
The backlash against Kardashian online is wildly entertaining. Here are a few quotes:
Might as well sue Melissa for looking like her, too. And maybe even her parents for having a child who looks like her. Good Luck with that, Kim.
She should sue any dog food commercial as well cuz she’s a fvking b!tch!
WOW. Just another way to make money easily instead of working hard for it. That family is so pathetic.
I actually thought it was Nicole Scherzinger when I saw the ad.The young lady in the ad is very pretty.Maybe thats Kim’s problem, Melissa is a fresh young beauty and Kim has been refurbished way to many times.
I thought the Old Navy girl looked like Nicole Scherzinger, especially since we know Kim couldn’t warble through a song to save her life. She’s the most vapid “celebrity” on Earth. I almost wish Armageddon would happen just to get rid of her and her hideous clan.
How self centered can a person get? She’s probably mad that the model has actual talent rather than sex tape fame.
Melissa Molinaro is a celebrity in her own right here in Canada (albeit a minor one): and unlike Kim K., she’s actually talented – I wouldn’t confuse them for a second, because Kim can neither sing nor dance.
GET OVER YOURSELF you moneygrukbbing self-indulgent skank. Not everyone wants to be you or anything like you…so don’t flatter yourself. Just please STFU and go away….and take those tranny sisters of yours with you.
What’s your take on this clusterfuck?
