'Project Runway' Dude

Sues Over Beer Bottle Fight

7/19/2010 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rami Kashou was beaten by Christian Siriano in the finals of season four of "Project Runway" -- but it's the alleged beating he received at the hands of a stranger that has him filing a mega-lawsuit.

Kashou claims in the suit -- filed Friday in L.A. County Superior Court -- he was minding his business at the popular West Hollywood restaurant/bar The Abbey, when a table of fans recognized him. Kashou says one of the men at the table, Arturo Trejo-Perez, scoffed, "Who the f**k are you?" Kashou says he said humbly, "I'm nobody, I'm just the waiter," and then walked away.

But it didn't end there.  Kashou says a few minutes later, he was at the bar when Perez came up to him, beer bottle in hand, and asked, "Did you even f**king win?" ... then poured beer over Kashou's head while screaming, "You are nothing but a lowlife has-been reality show loser."  Then, according to Kashou, Trejo-Perez smashed him in the face with the bottle.  

According to the suit, Trejo-Perez was eventually arrested, but only after repeatedly punching Kashou.

Kashou is suing Trejo-Perez and the bar owners for more than $25,000.

Am I misunderstanding something or did TMZ change the attacker's name from Perez to Lopez by the end of the story? WTF? Racists.

Being rude to drunk people is a quick way to getting your a$$ beat. Pouring your drink on him would have sufficed but punching and breaking the bottle on his face was not warranted in this situation.

This is too sad. I used to watch P.R. and Rami always seemed like a very cool guy. I bet the person who attacked him was homophobic and wanted to prove he was a bad-ass by hitting Rami. I hope the guy gets sentenced to jail instead of probation.
I also hope Rami is ok.

" Perez? Lopez? Do you guys even read the stuff you write? Really? "

Does it really matter? It's very typical behavior by the same type of LOSER ghetto a** piece of Sh*t trash. They have ruined WeHo and LA for that matter.
