Fox News Host Is Suing Hasbro For Naming A Toy Hamster After Her

Some people would see having a toy named after them as a good thing, but one foxy Fox News host wasn't very happy when she discovered a toy hamster with her unusual name.

Host Harris Faulkner is suing Hasbro for giving a Littlest Pet Shop hamster her name and likeness, and while the likeness element of the lawsuit is up for debate it’s hard to deny Hasbro’s use of her far from normal name.

Harris is suing the toy company for 5 million dollars, claiming the toy stole her likeness via “complexion, the shape of its eyes, and the design of its eye makeup”.

She's probably just angry that the figure named after her is a sidekick and not the main character, no word yet on whether a human named Benson Detwyler plans to sue Hasbro as well.

What toy company names a pair of children's hamster toys Benson Detwyler and Harris Faulkner? Whatever happened to Squeaky and Fuzzy? But they're on the Hasbro site, so they're definitely real.
