Stan Lee Threatens to Sue Reporters, Denies Elder Abuse Claims
The Stan Lee situation has been documented quite publicly and it has lead to many thinking that the legendary comic book icon has been a victim of elder abuse. Reports have claimed that the people in his life may be using him and they all might even hate each other, with many comic book creators and fans trying to reach out to him.
It seems like Lee has had enough of these reports, as he has now claimed that they are false and that if they don’t stop coming, people will be sued.
Lee’s comments come from a video on TMZ, the same website that revealed he was battling Pneumonia. It seems like Stan “The Man” Lee has had enough and has threatened to use all of his money to sue reporters if they don’t stop spreading the supposed lies.
Here is Lee’s lengthy statement. Be warned, there are a few swears since he is pretty angry:
"Hi, this is Stan Lee, and I'm calling on behalf of myself and my friend Keya Morgan. Now you people have been publishing the most hateful harmful material about me and about my friend Keya and some others. Material which is totally incorrect, totally based on slander, totally the type of thing that I'm going to sue your a** off when I get a chance. You have been accusing me and my friends of doing things that are so unrealistic or unbelievable that I don't know what to say. It's as though you suddenly have a personal vendetta against me and against the people I work with.”
"Well, I want you to know I'm going to spend every penny I have to put a stop to this and to make you sorry that you've suddenly gone on a one-man campaign against somebody with no proof, no evidence, no anything, but you've decided that people are mistreating me and therefore you're going to publish those articles."
"I'm going to get the best and most expensive lawyers I can and I want you to know that if you don't stop these articles and publish retractions, I am gonna sue your a** off."
Strong words from the comic book legend. Hoping he’s right since no one wants Stan to be abused by the people he loves.
