Definition of Character Jennifer Seelig was upset when San Francisco, Calif., radio station KLLC called her names on the air. Seelig, who had appeared on the TV show Who Wants to Marry a Multimillionaire?, had refused to be interviewed by the station, so host Vincent Crackhorn, without even mentioning her by name, called her “a local loser,” “chicken butt” and “a big skank.” She sued for slander, but the California State Court of Appeal ruled that Seelig subjected herself to comment by appearing on the TV show, and that while the insults were in bad taste, they were essentially meaningless since there’s no accepted definition for “skank.” (San Francisco Chronicle) ...For the benefit of judges working on future cases, a skank is a person who files silly lawsuits over trivial matters.
