The sh*t literally hit the fans at a recent filming for the MTV show, “Dude, This Sucks”. (sorry for the pun, I had to say it) Two 14-year-old girls who were splattered with fecal matter were not amused and have filed a lawsuit against the cable channel claiming intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence and battery. 

The two girls, Monique Garcia and Kelli Sloat, were standing next to the stage during a the performance by Shower Rangers. According to the girl's attorney Gloria Allred, "Without warning or explanation the two Shower Rangers turned their backsides to the audience, both opened a flap on the back of their shorts, exposing their naked buttocks," said Allred. "Before they could say or do anything, the Shower Ranger whose buttocks faced them bent over, spread the cheeks of his buttocks and emitted a spray of fecal matter,"  

MTV offered an official apology on April 5th, "This is a terrible incident. It was unintended and we regret that it happened," said Brian Graden, MTV's president of programming. As for the lawsuit, Graden says that MTV will respond through the courts. 

(Perhaps if MTV went back to a music format they wouldn’t have to worry about over the top acts in their variety shows opening them up to litigation? -aG)
