The Sweet Brown Story

This story came up last year but it is still damn funny. Sweet Brown is a lady who escaped an apartment fire in Oklahoma City. When interviewed by Channel 4 news, she recalls what happened, "Well, I woke up to go get me a cold pop, then I thought somebody was barbecuing. I said 'Oh Lord Jesus, it's a fire'. Then I ran out, I didn't grab any shoes or nothing, Jesus. I ran for my life, and then the smoke got me; I got bronchitis. Ain't nobody got time for that?"

Early this year she sued Apple, a radio program called The Bob Rivers Show, and a handful of other parties for unauthorized use of her likeness, according to court document for over $20 million. It appears she's got time for The suit claims that in April 2012, the defendants started selling the song on iTunes for profit. It also claims the radio program and its owner falsely advertised that Sweet Brown had given her consent for the radio station to use her voice and likeness in the song.
