Donald Duck might be costing Walt Disney World more than $200,000 for alleged inappropriate behavior, reported a New York Injury Lawyer.
A 27-year-old woman recently visited Walt Disney World with her small child. While she was visiting Epcot Center, she claimed she approached Donald Duck for an autograph, just as she had been doing with all of the other characters. Just as she was getting her pen and autograph book back, she claims the person in the Donald Duck costume groped her breast.
Almost immediately after her visit, the woman filed a federal lawsuit against Walt Disney World that would seek more than $200,000 in damages. The woman claimed she had been experiencing post – traumatic distress and hadn’t been able to sleep after the incident.
The woman called Donald Duck’s actions, “physically menacing” in her lawsuit and she said that it ruined the rest of her vacation with her family claiming that her trust in these characters completely changed. Disney has not yet released a statement but an Injury Lawyer in NY says the Corporation takes these types of allegations very seriously and will likely compensate the woman fairly for her pain and suffering.
Other charges like this have been filed before. Several similar claims against a man in a Tigger costume were filed not long before this case. Some argue that the people in these costumes can’t really see what they’re doing and most of the claims against them are false or misunderstood. Places in Staten Island and Westchester County are taking note of this case.
A spokesperson for Walt Disney was unavailable for comment.
