(Scroll down for video) Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc. was slapped with a lawsuit after Ellen DeGeneres cracked a joke about breasts while showing a sign containing the name and phone number of real estate agent Titi Pierce, according to court documents in Georgia.
Titi Pierce of Warner Robins, who is an electronics engineer and a real estate agent, wants compensation on claims of defamation, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Pierce told the court that as a result of the Ellen DeGeneres show, she has suffered stress, emotional distress, embarrassment, humiliation, anger and other mental pain and suffering.
DeGeneres highlighted Pierce’s real estate activity during the segment "What's wrong with these signs." Although Pierce pronounces her name "Tee Tee," Degeneres pronounced it titty, and then made a joke about breasts.
The show also showed her cellphone number, and as a result, she has received hundreds of phone calls from viewers during the funeral of a family member.
