By now, you’ve probably heard whispers on the internet about an Instagram-famous poker playboy throwing a porn star off a roof. For those curious yet confused, here’s a quick rundown: said playboy, Dan Bilzerian, was filmed chucking a 90-lb nude Janice Griffith off the roof of his mansion during a shoot for Hustler. Upon the fall, Griffith’s foot knicked the edge of the pool as she slammed into the water.
Now, Griffith is threatening to sue the millionaire poker player, requesting $85,000 in compensation for the work missed due to the injury. In response to Griffith, Bilzerian’s lawyer wrote a letter to Griffith’s counsel that’s been garnering both chuckles for its sarcasm and disdain for tasteless jabs. You can read the whole thing here via TMZ, below, some excerpts:
I am genuinely sorry that your client was hurt. No one wants to see anyone injured. But the suggestion that Mr. Bilzerian is responsible for that injury is embarrassing. I’m sorry she made you suggest it in writing.
So like your client, the facts of the claim won’t, quite, fly. The tape shows the two carefully practicing this flight of fancy under Hustler’s direction, and your client expressly agreeing to go ahead… Maybe your client’s theory is that Mr. Bilzerian negligently violated the established standard of reasonable care for one who throws a porn actor off a roof into a pool during a photo shoot for an adult magazine. I’ll let that one sink in for a minute.
If she sues, the complaint will be sanctionably frivolous. Your client should just box up almost every last bit of her property (please exclude all videos and photographs, as well as the seemingly inevitable small yappy dog) and drop it off with you in safe keeping for Mr. Bilzerian. After he receives the judgment in his favor, he will have it all delivered to him. Then he will probably blow it up with a mortar in the desert.
Of course, by this time tomorrow, we’ll most likely find out that this was all a big publicity stunt because #instagram #theinternet #Godsaveusall.
