A professor at Montana State University is suing Wal-Mart for what they wrote on his fishing license.
An employee allegedly wrote Gilbert Kalonde's profession as "toilet cleaner" on the license. Kalonde is an assistant professor of technology education at MSU.
According to the complaint, provided by the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, Kalonde showed his MSU ID for the license to show that he worked in the university. The Wal-Mart employee then wrote "cleans toilets" on the license.
Kalonde is suing for libel, saying what happened exposed him to "hatred, contempt, ridicule or obloquy." The suit said, "In [Kalonde's] home country of Zambia, the people that do this work are the lowest social class, and are shunned and avoided by society."
Wal-Mart spokesman, Ragan Dickens, told The Associated Press: "To our knowledge an administrative process to resolve this with Dr. Kalonde is ongoing. We've not been served with the lawsuit, but we take the claims seriously and will respond appropriately with the court."
