    A flight attendant who says she was falsely accused of using her underwear and pantyhose to carry pet rats aboard airplanes has filed suit against Jay Leno over jokes made about her on "The Tonight Show."

    The former American Airlines flight attendant, 55-year-old Louann Giambattista, accuses Leno and three other comedians of having made "sickening, outrageous and disgusting attacks" in a July 2013 segment titled "Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda.”

    A copy of the suit, obtained by Courthouse News, takes specific issue with humorous statements made on Leno's show that accuse her of "engaging in bestiality and sexual misconduct with a rat."

    The jokes, made by three comedians who appeared as guests on the show, are as follows:

    The suit further alleges that Giambattista's sex life with her husband has also been harmed by the Leno segment: "Every time he looks at her he thinks of defendant Leno and the heinous segment depicting her as a sexual deviant."

    Per Reuters, Giambattista has also sued American Airlines for the incident. She accuses that company of a "relentless campaign of discrimination."

    This lawsuit will (hopefully) be tossed out of court so fast. It's complete BS. :rolleyes:

    Should be tossed out of court on the simple premise that Jay Leno really isn't that funny.

    This lawsuit is a joke! (not litterally, though)
