‘We got to talk’
A man who believes his image has been recreated in the trailer for GTA 6 has hit out online.
Lawrence Sullivan, who is perhaps better known as the Florida Joker, shared a video to TikTok telling Rockstar “we need to talk”.
It’s certainly evident that there are similarities between Sullivan and a man seen being arrested in the video game trailer.
Sullivan sports a number of face tattoos which are similar to that of the character.
In the TikTok, Sullivan says: “You might have seen that character on GTA VI. Just dropped the trailer today, you know they got that character with the face tattoos.
“You know who they got that inspired by? By me.
“Just look me up, Florida Joker, Miami Joker, you know what I’m talking about.”
He added: “GTA, we got to talk.”
Fans are now curious if Sullivan, who has been arrested in the past for marijuanna possession and carrying a concealed firearm, plans to sue Rockstar over the resemblance.
One person responded to the video, writing: “Get your money bro.”
Another replied: “Nah fr u gotta get ur check (sic)”.
Lindsay Lohan famously brought a case against Rockstar claiming that they had used her image in the past however judges in New York ultimately dismissed her case.
They ruled that the character represented the ‘style, look and persona of a modern, beach-going young woman… that is not recognisable as plaintiff’.
But could things turn out differently for Sullivan should he take things further?
Only time will tell.
