Afflicted docuseries subjects sue Netflix for defamation

  • Jamison Hill, Pilar Olave, Jill Edelstein and Bekah Dinnerstein -- who dub themselves "the Afflicted four -- filed suit against Netflix on Wednesday for defamation, fraud and invasion of privacy. They claim they were “duped by Plaintiffs into participating in a salacious reality television program that questioned the existence of their chronic illnesses and portrayed Plaintiffs as lazy, crazy, hypochondriacs and/or malingerers who were deserving of scorn and who in fact have received scorn and abuse because of Defendants’ cruel and duplicitous actions.”
