Axl Rose sues over Dr Pepper giveaway

It seems not everyone had something to be thankful for on Thursday. Axl Rose, the frontman for Guns and Roses filed suit against Dr. Pepper Snapple Group for their recent Dr. Pepper giveaway. On November 23, Dr Pepper attempted to make good on their promise of free Dr. Pepper for all if Guns and roses released their long awaited "Chinese Democracy' album in 2008. Sadly, many users including WalletPop.com staff couldn't get the Drpepper.com to load which prompted Dr. Pepper to open up call lines to process coupon requests.

In a bit of irony, no one was more upset that Guns n' Roses fans had to wait than Axl Rose himself. The main portion of Axl's lawsuit alleges that Dr. Pepper flubbed the giveaway, calling it an, "unmitigated disaster," but the suit isn't just looking out for the rights of American consumers. GnR is also seeking compensation for the use of their reputation in connection with the promotion.
