DJ battles have taken on a whole new image. New York jock DJ Star filed a lawsuit against Queens city councilman John Liu claiming the politician defamed him when he called him a “sick, racist, pedophile.”Related Videos:
The councilman’s rant reportedly came after DJ Star allegedly made sexual comments about a rival DJ’s young daughter on Power 105’s “Star & Buc Wild Morning Show” in New York.
DJ Star, whose real name is Troi Torain, was briefly charged with child endangerment and was fired from the show in 2006 after making a racial remark about the wife of rival DJ Raashaun Casey and sexually charged comments about his 4-year-old daughter.
The out-of-work Torain then filed suit against Lui, but was shunned twice. The court ruled that Liu was “within his rights,” the Associated Press reported.
And now a federal appeals court supports the ruling saying that the councilman did not defame the DJ, contending that expressions of pure opinion rather than statements of fact are protected by the Constitution.
