Tampa DJ Suing Bubba the Love Sponge For Using Offensive Words?

On one side, Bubba the Love Sponge, on the other broadcaster Todd M.J Schnitt. It’s a civil defamation case in Tampa putting the two radio personalities against each other.

The civil case goes back five years. Schnitt and his wife are suing Bubba and Cox Radio for very offensive, insulting or fighting words and defamatory statements. Allegedly there were occasions when Bubba said he wanted M.J. dead, they claim, and called Schnitt`s wife a “whore”.

Legally, the lawsuit may be one worth keeping an eye on. It could further define who is a public figure, and influence how much freedom radio broadcasters have when it comes to their speech.
