Rodeo Promoters Get Panties in Bunch, Sue Activists Over Matchbox 20

Published by PETA.

Honestly, I think I got most of the story out in the title, but here goes: According to TMZ, a booking company called Romeo Entertainment is suing an animal group after Matchbox 20 pulled out of performing at a rodeo. They’re evidently pissed that the group, called SHARK, sent Matchbox 20 info about the cruelty of rodeos, causing the band to cancel their appearance. And this isn’t the first time it’s happened—Carrie Underwood reportedly pulled out of a similar event in 2006 for the same reasons.

Anyway, good luck with your dumbass lawsuit, Romeo Entertainment. I’m sure the courts are going to look really kindly on this waste of their time.
