Bro With The Famous Mullet Didn’t Get Any Defamation Dollars

Ziggy Mosslmani has an absolute belter of a mullet. Like, one of the most serious mullets I’ve ever seen. If you hadn’t mulleted before and you saw this mullet a Commodore V8 would run you over. Understatements aside, Mooslmani does have the world’s worst mullet, and when he got turnt at an 18th birthday party in Sydney in July last year, a professional photographer took a pic of the beast and Facebook went ‘FATALITY’ on his ass.

Online bullying is no joke though. According to ABC – and we’re not sure this is entirely true, given just how horrendous it is – one media outlet took it so far to say the muzza belonged in the “Hairy Hall of Shame”. *GASP* According to the ABC, it gets even more shocking. The photo was shared hundreds of times on social media, combining with 2,000 comments on the picture and a string of stories that one poor intern went through and individually compiled, prior to emailing the editor of said publication, requesting the estimated view count of that particular article, and deciding 1.7 million would do when she couldn’t be fucked.

Judge Gibson, who presided over the hearing, said the comments were of a humorous nature. “The plaintiff’s striking mullet haircut has generated a great deal of interest on the internet, most of it humorous, and some of it in the form of clever observations, such as the ‘Pythagoras’ direction in one of the memes,” she said.

Jeremy Nool was the paparazzi sniper that night. The photographer claimed he had no idea a photo of this planet’s most untamed mullet would be of interest to… uh, everyone. Ever. “It was one of the photos where everyone’s dancing. I thought this is a good angle and the lighting was good,” he said/lied/whatever.
