Woman Sues Drive for Having Too Few Car Chases, Too Much Anti-Semitism

Drive.

Were you expecting Drive to contain Vin Diesel and exotic automobile chases, and instead, you found yourself watching an existential Ryan Gosling drama about what heads look like when they break apart? Then perhaps you'd be interested in joining a class-action lawsuit filed by Michigan woman Sarah Deming, who is suing Drive distributor FilmDistrict over a supposedly misleading promotional campaign that advertised Drive as a movie akin to The Fast and the Furious, even though it "bore very little similarity to a chase, or race action film." Deming goes on to allege that Drive "substantially contained extreme gratuitous defamatory dehumanizing racism directed against members of the Jewish faith," which is something that Paul Walker would never stand for.
