William Shatner Sued For Harassment
We all just enjoyed a nice long weekend, the four-day work week is already 25% over and we got to see Jeremy Renner fight a machine gun-wielding witch in the Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters trailer: of course we had to hear some depressing news before the day was out! It’s just a matter of statistics! To wit, TMZ is reporting that William Shatner and his wife allegedly “harassed and berated” former employees Oscar and Delmy Alfaro until the handyman and housekeeper were forced to quit their jobs, despite their 20 employment history with the Shatners. Yup, that’s….that’s pretty terrible.

According to the Alfaros, who filed a lawsuit with the Los Angeles County Superior Court today, the Star Trek star and spouse allegedly persecuted them after Oscar got injured on the job and refused to sign a waiver. The couple is suing the Shatners for damages, claiming that they suffered “humiliation, embarrassment, and mental anguish in addition to the loss of earnings.” Oh lord, we hope this whole thing turns out not to be true. Is there no ironic television icon we can look to anymore? David Hasselhoff, you might be our last, best hope. Please do not betray us until at least next Wednesday, we beg of you!
