    This was sent to me by a friend who knows I go to this website.

    A titans fan, with Down syndrome, is suing for $18 million over the picture below. (update) Specifically 'photoshopped' pictures which insulted the young man in the picture. It was taken about 9 years ago when he was 17. His name is Adam Holland, he lives in Nashville and is a big Titans fan. The picture of him was taken while he was in art class. He is holding up a picture he drew with the words "Go Titans One" above it.

    As he is a Titans fan I wish him all the luck in his legal pursuit. Go Titans!

    It isn't so much the picture, it was the 'photoshop' of it.

    They replaced the words, with something along the lines of 'retarded news' or something equally offensive. I agree, the radio station deserves it.
    Titans Eternal and The Hammer high five this.

    I thought Titanswilkwin2 said he was a body builder, does he look like a bodybuilder to anyone in the picture?

    Totally understand the reason for the lawsuit, but on the other hand. If this pic was posted online, it then becomes free game to the world. And this pic is special because how easy is it to erase whats on that white piece of paper? The opportunities are endless. Down Syndrome or not. Anyone making a silly face holding up a paper that a 7 year old could alter on his basic Paint Windows program should be aware of this possibly happening. I guess they wouldnt have a lawsuit if the kid wasn't Down Syndrome.

    What complete RETARD at that radio station thought it was a good idea to post a picture of a real retarded person with the words "Retarded News" on it?
