Celebrities Behaving Badly: Seun Kuti Curses Out Storm Record Executive Obi Asika on Facebook

From defamation lawsuits to copyright infringement claims, celebrities are being sued for bad behavior on social media.This new feature on AML documents celebrities behaving badly on social media. The actions may or may not lead to legal liability, however, in most cases, it creates bad publicity. I don’t intend to say much than to just post the actions or behavior at issue. You all can draw your conclusions.

First up is the case below that just occurred within the past 24hours and is generating buzz.
