UPDATE: WalMart Blames Tracey Morgan For His Injuries [VIDEO]
Just when I thought corporations couldn't get any more greedy, Walmart proves me wrong. In an effort to combat pending lawsuit, the super Giant retailer claims that the plaintiffs in the Limo/Truck accident "acted unreasonably" and therefore caused their own injuries! Details inside.
The driver, Kevin Roper, who was driving a semi-truck for Walmart when it slammed into Tracy Morgan's limo bus in June is charged with vehicular homicide and assault but Walmart is claiming that the injuries that left several comedians in ICU for weeks is their own fault because there weren't wearing seatbelts! What the heck?? Who wears seatbelts in a Limo anyways??
Comedian Jimmy Mack was killed in the crash and Tracey Morgan suffered from leg and rib injuries that caused him to miss several tour dates. Can you believe the nerve of Walmart to blame the victims?? If the driver had gotten some sleep (he was awake more than 24 hours when the crash occurred)instead of trying to get Walmart's products to their destination on time, none of this would have happened!
Tracey Morgan responds:
"I can't believe Walmart is blaming me for an accident that they caused," the former "Saturday Night Live" star said in a statement. "My friends and I were doing nothing wrong," said Morgan.
Tracey Morgan -- who has not specified the amount of damages he's seeking -- also had a message for his fans.
"I want to thank my fans for sticking with me during this difficult time. I love you all. I'm fighting hard every day to get back."
