Mr. 305 filed a lawsuit in response to oeThe New Amsterdam Pit Bull ad campaign.
Pitbull has filed a federal lawsuit against E. & J. Winery & New Amsterdam Spirits Company as a result of a cocktail recipe called “The Pit Bull,” TMZ reports.
Pitbull is suing for all the profits made off of his name, and for “Pit Bull” to be removed from New Amsterdam’s website.

Pitbull is an owner of Voli Spirits, a brand that sells flavored vodka. Voli was recently named in a lawsuit stemming from a March Voli promotional event that lead to one man’s death.
