Jesus Take The Wheel: Deacon Not Happy Being A 'Pimp' On Book Cover!


According to Court house news, A New York publishing company is in hot water for using a photo of a Tennessee church deacon without his permission, he claims in court. According to the not too happy deacon, the book cover depicts  him as "Earl the Black Pimp."

Charles Christian is suing Kensington Publishing Corp. in federal court for violation of right to be free of publicity, false light, and invasion of privacy. Christian, a black entrepreneur and Nashville church deacon, took part in a private photography session as a gift to his wife in April 2013, the complaint says. He was then told by friends and family that his picture was on the cover of Donald Goines' book "Street Players."

The book was available for purchase at a grocery store in Mount Juliet, Tenn. and a Barnes & Noble location in Hendersonville, Tenn. "Mr. Goines' books revolve around and focus on graphic, explicit, and pornographic aspects of prison, crime, prostitution and illegal drugs," the complaint states. "'Street Players' is about a pimp named 'Earl the Black Pimp' who is trapped in a lifestyle of drugs, violence, and prostitution."

  1. LOL! I'm sorry but this made me chuckle a little. How did this even happen? What a shame...and what's messed up is, they must have thought he looked pimpish enough to use his photo smh! He may want to undergo a makeover as I'm sure "pimp/kingpin" isn't the look he's aspiring to as a deacon lol.
