    I was positive that this was going to be a marijuana-releated issue. ;)


    Did you save this facebook chat of yours, hopefully?
    Regardless, this promoter sounds like a real douchebag.

    **Edit**

    I see now, you want him to remove what you posted on Facebook chat. I am not familiar with facebook. I don't use it. IMO it is a voluntary Big Brother and catalyst for the ruination of society.

    You have to realize things you do/post on the internet have the potential to be there for an eternity. Let this be a lesson learned.

    Did you have a contract, Oral or Written, before you told him on Facebook chat that you weren't doing it? Never a good idea to do FB conracts, next time be smart and use Twitter.

    Your REAL NAME or a DBA name????

    Send him a cease and desist order certified...

    If you call a lawyer, that may cost $200 but if you do it at least he can't deny it.

    Did you agree to do a show for him before he did his promo work? If that is the case wouldn't you have an obligation of some sort, financial or otherwise?

    Or you could just ask him to add to his posters [B]CRAYC![/B] [SIZE=1]will not be here[/SIZE]

    Since you have no fame, no brand, and no following there can be no damage to you.

    Have you considered thanking him?

    Lol, good to see the old same faces again.

    Well to be clear, when he told me if i was available for the date i told him no. I told him i won't be doing that event for him. Then he said YES you will , like he would force me or something lol. I told him again no, then he turned into a little kid and started posting the flyer over and over again. I told him nicely please remove my image and name off of it. He refuses and gave me the number to his lawyer. The fb chat transcript shows not once did i ever agree and i asked him to cease and desist.

    Now doing some research last night i found that this is an invasion of property under the appropriation tort. right of privacy or whatever. they can't use my image, likeness, or name without my consent.

    and this causes no damage to me unless he is using another clown in my likeness. Yes i perform as a clown, but i am dropping it since people just stare at me scared and don't dance unless i yell at them. He is also making money off this event.

    I am thinking this jackass thinks i will change my mind and do the event.

    sowhat should i do, call his lawyer and pretend to be a lawyer and tell him about this tort?


    thanks for answering guys

    Wait, wha? I just assumed you were calling him a clown but it turns out he really is a clown? That's fantastic!

    I would LOVE to go to some club where a clown is DJ'ing and yelling at me to dance. That sounds awesome.

    I don't know the law, but this promoter sounds like he is in dire need of a serious beatdown. You should get like 40 of your clown friends into your Toyota Celica and go find his sorry azz.
