And Now She Wants To Get Paid of the Day: Well, no one saw this coming — Potato Jesus “creator” Cecilia Giménez has overcome her shame and now is suing for royalties brought in by gawking tourists.
The potential payday at stake? A measly cut of just $2,600.
So she gets shit on for doing something with good intentions, the town reaps in the benefits while she goes into hiding and then we bash her for wanting a piece of what she created?
All that can be argued, true, however don’t act like it’s peanuts she’s fighting for. 2,600 may be nothing to your privileged ass but if you knew anything about the situation in Spain you would know how fucked up things are and in what desperate state a lot of people are in. That money could feed her for months.
So fuck your ‘measly’ bullshit, that’s a lot of money to some people.
