Ian Benardo is that kid on the playground who can’t accept losing to the cooler kids, the American Idol reject is suing the show for the third time, claiming discriminatory practices against Idol producers.
According to Benardo, the show’s producers “exploited” him by asking that he “gay it up” for the show.
Benardo has tried the same tactic two other times, first asking for $300 million, then $100 million. This time Ian is asking for a measly $5 million
Last time the suit was dropped on a technicality, however Benardo’s lawyer Matthew Blit says they have all their ducks in a row this time and filed again in Federal court.
Why would you keep going back if they are “exploiting” you? Seems like a bunch of bull to us. Anyone else feel like Idol producers are just messing with this kid as he continues to appear at auditions…after all they don’t have to let anyone into the building they don’t want to.
