Kuwaiti Blogger Sued Over Bad Benihana Review
Let’s say you have a popular blog in Kuwait. If you are going to blog in Kuwait, then you are going to get hungry. If you are hungry, you might want to go to a restaurant. Because you have been to every restaurant in Kuwait, you will probably decide to eat at the new Benihana. The food at the new Benihana is going to be underwhelming and poorly prepared. When you eat a bad meal, you will want to blog about it. So you will write a negative review about your experience at Benihana. But if you blog about your bad Benihana experience, you are going to get sued. When you get sued, lots of people will read your blog and write about the lawsuit. All this will make your blog more popular. And this will make you hungry again.
The above described scenario is roughly what happened to Kuwaiti blogger, 2:48 a.m.. What will be the outcome of Benihana’s action? No idea. Siouxsie knows nothing about Kuwaiti law.
This whole things makes one wonder if Barbara Streisand will soon be the new spokesperson for Benihana.
This is a copy of Benihana’s demand letter(?)/order(?) translated into English.
