Toby Keith’s ‘American Ride’ Stirs Up More Controversy

Tell me what you think of this…

Remember Stella Leibeck?  She’s the one who sued McDonalds in 1992 after her coffee gave her third degree burns. She won a great deal of money in the suit.

Stella has since passed, but her family is very angry with Toby Keith. Toby’s hit song “American Ride” mentions “spill a cup of coffee, make a million dollars.” Well, Leibeck’s family members are not happy about it.

I guess Stella was 79 when the incident happened and had to have extensive surgeries to repair her skin after the coffee spill. She was only rewarded $600,000… not a million. And, the family has to keep reliving the accident every time they hear Toby’s song.

Do you think Toby was right to put this issue into his song? Is this family just ultra litigious? Also, that song has been out for several years, and they’re just getting mad about it now?

Here’s the video for America Ride…
