Chubby Checker, whose real name is Ernest Evans, is suing Hewitt-Packer for using his name in the recently released penis size guessing app.
Guardian reports that lawyers for the Rock N’ Roll legend are seeking a half of a billion dollars in “irreparable damage and harm" following the use of his name for the app.
The app, which was recently reported as an app designed by a doctor who uses such measurements as height, shoe size and finger length to predict the length of the male sex organ.
The app was originally created for the purpose of entertainment and humor.
Evans, who trademarked ‘Chubby Checker’ in 1997, is outraged by the play on word his pseudo name is being used or.
Lawyers for the 71-year-old singer state that the use of the name will “blur and tarnish” the name he so long ago trademarked. The representative noted that the use of the app will create "obscene, sexual connotation and images." The suit adds that “purchasers of 'the Chubby Checker' app and non-purchasing browsers of the associated web page are being misled into believing that plaintiffs have endorsed defendant's app."
The official press release details the suit “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.”
