Want to make a hundred million dollars? Just be a victim!
Last month we reported on the case of Mohamad Bazzi, a Muslim man from Dearborn, Michigan, who is suing the pizza chain Little Caesars for $100 million – a hefty sum for a chain known for advertising their $5 pizza deals.
What was the basis of this lawsuit? Mohamad ordered pepperoni pizza, and then ate pepperoni. According to his lawsuit, he “accidentally” ate a portion of the pepperoni pizza that he believed to have been made with halal meat (apparently it was haram), as it’s against the Islamic faith to consume pork. Mohamad filed a police report regarding the incident back in March (yes, really) prior to filing his lawsuit.
Just as quickly as the lawsuit was filed, it crumbled. According to Fox 2 Detroit, Attorney for Little Caesars said on Friday that a lawsuit that claimed a Detroit-area Muslim man had been served pepperoni pizza instead of halal pepperoni was being dropped. However, the man’s attorneys are disputing that assertion.
