58-year-old comedienne Ellen DeGeneres is using her First Amendment right to defend name-calling!

Her show’s producer, Warner Brothers, is using the defense in a federal lawsuit brought about by a woman named Titi Pierce who is suing for defamation after DeGeneres poked fun at her name! 35-year-old Pierce claims that her name is pronounced “TEE TEE” and says that nobody ever referred to her as “titty” until DeGeneres made the joke on her show.

Warner Brothers’ lawyer Thomas Clyde says in court papers: “Under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and under well-established Georgia law, courts have consistently recognized that humor, parody, name-calling and other forms of ‘rhetorical hyperbole’ are simply not actionable as defamation or under any other legal theory.”
