“Take all you want, but eat all you take.” A seemingly harmless expression that can lead to a class-action lawsuit. And Chipotle’s finding that out the hard way.

Three overzealous eaters of Chipotle’s chorizo burrito, which is billed as a 300-calorie meal, are suing the restaurant for making them “excessively full” to the point where this burrito “couldn’t have been just 300 calories.” 

“The suit alleges Chipotle’s menu contains false nutritional information in which ‘consumers are lulled into a false belief that the items they are eating are healthier than they really are,’” according to City News Service. “Though the chain bills itself as a provider of ‘food with integrity,’ organic fare and ‘responsibility raised’ meat as part of its promotion of a ‘healthy eating mantra.’”

Because if something’s healthy, you can never eat too much of it. In fact, you can just pick up a bunch of apples and just keep eating. Just keep eating and you will never become too full. It’s great! I’ve been doing it for nigh six years, and I feel great. Really. This is me, except with apples:

So does their lawsuit have any merit? Well, they crunched the numbers over at Slate and found that the meal was actually closer to 1,050 calories. Ew, boy. How did Chipotle respond?

Oh, so just the meat is 300 calories. You can see what happened there, they thought… and you thought… Right. It’s all just a big mistake. A big mistake that could cost the burrito giant a little more than extra guac. The suit “would cover all people who bought food at Chipotle for four years leading up to the filing of the complaint.” That means you, you excessively full so-and-so.

This is not what Chipotle, who spent the last year watching their stock tumble and trying to win customers pack after an E. coli outbreak, needs right now.

Actual Chipotle Customer


Chipotle blames "rogue managers" for not correctly following policy, but we just hope they give their workers their fare cash due.

It looks like Ellen really made a boob of herself when she made a joke (near the end of this video, ~2:45) about a real estate broker with the name of Titi Pierce. That name is actually pronounced 'Tee-Tee' for the record and she wants to make sure everyone knows it. That's why Titi Pierce is suing Ellen for the humiliation that joked caused. Her claim is that she has experienced pain and suffering due to the crude jokes at the expense of her name that, Pierce says, have never occurred to anyone before Ellen made that joke on her show.

Pastor Jordan D Brown claimed to have gotten this awful cake from Whole Foods. He shared a picture of the cake with the statement:

That’s not the cake I ordered, @WholeFoodsand I am offended for myself & the entire community

He also got a lawyer, and filmed this "unboxing" video as proof that the cake had not been tampered with. 




Whole Foods, a notably progressive grocery store chain, has countered with a thorough investigation. They are now suing the pastor in regard to his claim, which they believe to be false. According to Uproxx, Whole Foods issued this statement:

After a deeper investigation of Mr. Brown’s claim, we believe his accusations are fraudulent and we intend to take legal action against both Mr. Brown and his attorney.

We stand behind our bakery team member, who is part of the LGBTQ community, and we appreciate the team members and shoppers who recognize that this claim is completely false and directly contradicts Whole Foods Market’s inclusive culture, which celebrates diversity.

Whole Foods also released a video showing Brown and the cashier while the cake was being purchased where neither one seemed to notice the odd wording on the cake.

Saima Ahmad, a law student in England, decided to practice what she's been learning when she bought an ate a KitKat that was missing that tasty center wafer part. 


As she told Yahoo! News, she has written a letter of complaint to Nestle demanding a refund and adequate compensation for the mishap.  Citing "monetary and emotional" loss, she has asked for a lifetime supply of unlimited KitKats and says she would consider taking further legal action if her demands are not met. It may sound unrealistic but she has said, “I’m trying my luck, if you don’t ask you don’t get.”  So hopefully she isn't really expecting unlimited candy bars.

Production assistants who worked on blockbuster films such as 'The Wolf of Wall Street' and 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' who were in charge of parking are now suing Paramount Pictures and other associated production companies. 

The suit claims that they were not allowed to leave their assigned locations, which led them to start keeping "bottles and buckets" in their vehicles for any inevitable bathroom breaks. 

On top of that, they claim that in cold weather they had to leave their cars running continuously but were never compensated for it.  And they had to work 60-100 hours a week regularly while being paid a flat rate of $150 a day without overtime. They were also not given food on set during their 12-hour-on-average days. 

The suit is an attempt by the PAs to get compensation for such poor working conditions.
