This is frivolous, at best in my opinion. People will always be able to use a good thing for a bad purpose. Take a trash bag for example. It is meant to hold “trash”, however, that same trash bag can be used to suffocate someone. Will people sue the maker of the trash bag because one was used to commit murder?

IMHO, give it time. I see that happening in the future. Manufacturers of trash bags, knives, gold clubs, bats, etc.

Cases like this are nothing new. There was a time, not all that long ago, when gun companies were sued for the violence, but more so, tobacco companies ( aka Big Tobacco ) was sued on behalf of the people who ignored the warnings on every single package of tobacco sold in the US stating that the product was both hazardous and addictive, and died.

Same with parents suing social media because the parents gave their kids a telephone babysitter instead of watching the kids themselves. It’s always somebody else’s fault.
