Model turnt Actress turnt television host, Tyra Banks is due in court this week to testify against a Georgia man accused of following and harrassing her from Los Angeles to NYC. Banks, photographed above during the “Broadcasting Reality: Show Me The Money!” Luncheon is scheduled to testify in a Manhattan courtroom where Brady Green goes on trial on charges of stalking her.
Green, a resident of Dublin, Ga., is accused of following Banks from coast to coast since January of last year. He was arrested in a McDonald’s near the Manhattan building where “The Tyra Banks Show” is taped after he attempted to see Tyra on March 18, 2008.
According to the criminal complaint filed against Green, he had been stalking Banks since January of the 2008 and had attempted to contact Banks by appearing at both her Los Angeles and NYC studios, making repeated phone calls and sending multiple letters to her workplace and even having flowers delivered to the runway star. At the time of his arrest, he was found carrying a large duffel bag full of magazine clips of the model, along with notes he had written himself that documented several of his attempts to contact Banks.
Banks told the Manhattan District Attorney’s office she was “in fear of physical injury, serious injury or death” as a result of Green’s actions. Shortly after the incident, she was granted a restraining order against him. Green, 38, has pleaded not guilty to stalking, harassment and criminal trespass and faces up to 90 days in jail if convicted by Manhattan Criminal Court Judge James Burke, who is hearing the case without a jury.

This is one of the many reasons why I rarely set foot in Marietta and I feel sorry for those of you who have to live there. Mulligan’s Bar & Tavern in Cobb county has printed up racist t-shirts featuring cartoon chimp Curious George peeling a banana, with “Obama in ’08” printed underneath and are selling them in the bar. The owner, Mike Norman thinks there’s nothing wrong with the T-shirts and calls them “cute.” 😯
Norman said those offended are “hunting for a reason to be mad” and insisted he is “not a racist.”
Why picture Obama as Curious George? “Look at him . . . the hairline, the ears, he looks just like Curious George,” Norman said.
He said it’s just a coincidence that the character he chose for the T-shirt is a monkey. Norman said proceeds raised from sales of the T-shirts will be donated to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. (Source)
Y’all can keep walking around like racism doesn’t exist if you want to! Check out other disturbing images from Mulligan’s Bar after the jump…
