‘The Dirt’ Crew Member Sues Motley Crue, Netflix
March 26, 2019 6:11AM CDT
- It turns out critics aren’t the only ones who aren’t particularly fond of the Motley Crue biopic “The Dirt.” A crew member who worked on the Netflix film has filed a lawsuit against the band and the streaming media giant, claiming he was injured during production.
- Louis DiVincenti, a rigging grip, says he suffered second- and third-degree burns over 50 percent of his body when he was shocked by a power line while tearing down the Whisky A Go Go scene in March 2018. He’s seeking unspecified damages, plus compensation for $1.8 million in medical bills.
- Motley Crue management has not commented on the suit, and a rep for Netflix has only confirmed the incident, saying, “Even though all of our safety protocols were in place, an accident did occur and a crew member was injured by electricity.”
- Have you ever been injured on the job? Is it right to include the members of Motley Crue in this lawsuit?
