Allred to Dwarf: I've Got Your Back

4/8/2010 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned civil rights crusader Gloria Allred will file a complaint against a college which denied a 3'7" dwarf an education because of her size.

Ms. Allred will display various awards the young dwarf has received -- including one from the President of the United States.

Attorney Allred will also show photos and video of her little client as a high school varsity cheerleader.

Allred will hold a news conference with the dwarf in her L.A. office at 10:30 AM PT. TMZ is inclined to live stream the event.

Who are we kidding ... we'll have 5 cameras there.

Too bad a decent and humble attorney can't represent this student.

BY THE WAY, TMZ, the term "dwarf" is antiquated. This person doesn't deserve such a slur in the media. So are words like "idiot" and "moron." These used to be terms used in psychology but no more.

I'm from Australia and I don't know if Gloria is single or not, but we've got the perfect man for her here in Oz. His name is Max Markson and he's supposedly a 'publicist', however his 'stars' are usually D-list celebrities or wannabees. He and Gloria would be perfect together cos they both love seeing themselves in the limelight and both represent no-hopers and people desperate for their fifteen minutes of fame.

I seriously doubt that this happened. There has to be another, legitament reason they denied her entrance. When Allred speaks, you know she's lying. She loves coming up with these bizarre people claiming discrimination and it usually turns out nothing like she said. I'm sure there is something she's not telling. She gets attention for her clients through outrageous headlines like this. Tell the truth, Gloria, come on you can do it, you must remember something about the truth, try to remember now.

This time I can see where Gloria is doing something good. She needs to get back on the right track and leave the floozeys behind.

Dwarfism caused her to be a "little person" right but calling her a dwarf is very non pc.
Yeah, want to see the college that is foolish enough to put down on paper that her size is why she was not getting in....leaning toward a "she said" deal.
There are safety issues, accommodations that would have to be made etc something maybe a smaller college could not afford to take on but surely they had enough sense to not write that down.

Take your cheer leading outfit and find a college that will make the changes and support you, this is the first of many challenges for.

I'll be interested to see which college this is. If she's as impressive a student as she claims, I would assume she's applying to top-notch schools. If so, she should be smart enough to realize those schools get many qualified appicants and clearly can't take everyone. Unless they specifically SAID they denied her because of her height, I don't see her having a case.

I know at amusement parks that you can't ride the rides if you aren't as tall as that measuring stick by each one.....

I Guess the colleges felt that she "Didn't Measure Up"....nor could she ever....

"display various awards the young dwarf has received -- including one from the President of the United States."


You know not everyone gets into the college they want and trying to force them to take you based on some bs you make up boots another kid who did deserve to be there. If you have an official document from a college that states you were denied based on size well then sue on, you belong at that school.
