"Producers of the Reese Witherspoon drama, The Good Lie are being sued because they ‘used the life stories of dozens of Sudanese genocide survivors without paying them,’ claims the Foundation for Lost Boys and Girls of Sudan, in a federal lawsuit. The movie also stars South Sudanese former child soldiers Ger Duany and Emmanuel Jal.
The Atlanta-based foundation and the 54 refugees they support, filed the suit on February 19, alleging ‘fraudulent inducement, unjust enrichment, breach of faith, breach of contract, commercial appropriation, conversion and breach of fiduciary duty,’ reports Court
House News Service.
Further, the suit claims that the 54 ‘Lost Boys’ partnered with the
defendants listed above, to develop a screenplay for a film that would ‘raise public awareness of the plight of Sudanese refugees’ through
depiction of their ‘traumatic personal stories.’
The 101-page lawsuit is seeking to get compensation to their contributions.”
Yes, sue the fuck out of them. Stop pretending you are helping Africans when YOU ARE ACTUALLY EXPLOITING US.
