Fox News anchor wins lawsuit over toy hamster


PUBLISHED Wed, October 05, 2016 - 5:36pm EDT


Fox News Channel anchor Harris Faulkner has settled a lawsuit against Hasbro Inc over the company's sale of a toy hamster that shared her name, Faulkner and Hasbro said in a statement on Wednesday. Faulkner sued Hasbro for more than $5 million in federal court in New Jersey in August 2015, accusing Hasbro of violating her publicity and confusing customers into thinking she had endorsed the toys. Calling it "demeaning and insulting" for Hasbro to portray her as a rodent, Faulkner said the toy resembled her through its complexion, eye shape and eye makeup design.
