A woman filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against her ex-roommate for teaching her pet parrot dozens of lewd remarks which it would repeat hundreds of times every day.
26-year old Sarah Johnson from Louisville in Kentucky claims that her former roommate, 27-year old Steven Moore, caused her psychological and emotional trauma by pushing her pet parrot to sexually harass her. According to the complaint, Mr. Moore taught the plaintiff’s bird, an orange-winged amazon parrot named Kiki, several short sentences of sexual nature, which the animal began repeating tirelessly. Ms. Johnson kicked Mr. Moore out of their apartment after only six months but says Kiki continued harassing her for almost 3 years until she was finally forced to have her it euthanized.
Sarah Johnson says Kiki knew around twelve different sentences and would repeat them several hundred times every day. “It drove me crazy and was so embarrassing that I didn’t dare invite anyone at home.”
Steven More’s lawyer, Mr. Gary White described Ms. Johnson’s complaint as “ridiculous”, saying his client could not be held responsible for her bird’s behavior for years after he stopped seeing it. This case is expected to return in court next week for the beginning of the hearings.
