The Little People of America non-profit group isn’t happy with Zac Brown‘s recent round of “midget bowling” at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. TMZ has video of Zac taking part in the activity using a little person known as Short Sleeve Sampson as his bowling ball. Zac launched Sampson down the ramp where the little person knocked over bowling pins.
Sampson insists Zac didn’t do anything wrong and that he willingly participated in the activity. Little People of America, which represents people with dwarfism, says the problem here is that the little person was used as an object in the sporting event and not as a competitor.
A rep for Little People of America tells TMZ, “We believe that such practices are a direct insult to the equality of people with dwarfism, grounded in a respect for basic human dignity.”
