Next Case.. Rio vs. The Simpsons

Simpsons News — Posted 09 Apr, 2002 by Scott

Well fans, if you haven't already heard by either watching E! Entertainment Television or reading it on Yahoo!, Rio is suing The Simpsons for the recent episode "Blame it On Lisa". Rio, Brazil, is suing the show's creator for that episode since they say it made Rio look bad in a tourist aspect especially after the country spent over $18 million the last two years in promoting the country. Rio's O Globo newspaper says Riotur took exception to the parts of the story where: (1) Homer is held for $50,000 ransom by a cab driver; (2) Bart is swallowed whole by a boa constrictor; (3) Marge is "helped" by unhelpful Brazilian police and (4) Lisa, et al, are attacked by mad monkeys.
