Girls Gone Wild Creator Joe Francis

Joe Francis, tax-evading creator of the Girls Gone Wild empire, has another title to add to the list — douchebag. "Douche of the Decade," in fact, was the exact phrase used in a lawsuit filed today by publishing company 4th Street Media.  The suit aims to stop Francis from blocking the publication of their upcoming book, FLASH! Bars, Boobs, and Busted: 5 Years on the Road with Girls Gone Wild. The book, a tell-all written by Francis’ former employee Ryan Simkin, purportedly contains tales of Francis’ drug-use and rampant misogyny. The lawsuit uses the following endearing language to describe Francis:
 

"Convicted felon; child molester; jail-baiting pervert; pimp; sick bastard; sleaze-peddler; tax cheat; rapist; sleazehole; the epitome of a true misogynist, coked-out amoral direct marketer; violent thug; juvenile smut-peddler; sexual predator; one of the 50 most loathsome people in America; and the Douche of the Decade."

While the language of the lawsuit is certainly colorful, I’m sure these accusations come as a surprise to no one.
