Yes, we’re for real.
An Italian woman named Gabriella Goat is reportedly demanding 100,000 Euros ($143,000 AUD) in compensation after being “teased and made an object of scorn,” thanks to a Peppa Pig character.
Yes, you read that correctly.
Gabriella Capra, whose last name means goat in Italian, claims that since the introduction of the character to the series in 2012, “She has been the frequent object of derisive jokes by friends and colleagues.”
According to the National Foundation of Consumers, who is representing Gabriella in the civil suit, she has decided to protect her name by seeking compensation which she will reportedly donate to charity.
Peppa Pig is hugely in popular in Italy, where the character appears as Gabriella Capri, and has even inspired an upcoming theme park.
But it's clear that not everyone is a fan.
