The actor hired by Nintendo to wear a Donkey Kong costume at an event held at the Los Angeles Zoo is now suing, claiming the suit led to physical problems. Parker Mills wore the suite to help promote the Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D game for the Nintendo 3DS, and the event was held on May 24, 2013.




Mills' attorneys say he wasn't give appropriate break time and didn't get to have an ice pack to help cool him down in the giant suit.


"It created a very stressful environment," said one of Mills' attorneys, as the lawsuit was filed in the Los Angeles County Superior Court.


These types of suits are typically very hot and the person inside of the suit needs to stay hydrated, especially in the hot Southern California sun. There has been no public comment from Nintendo regarding the lawsuit.
