A blind woman claims she can't use Beyonce.com without the help of a sighted companion.
Beyonce Knowles' company Parkwood Entertainment has been hit with a class action lawsuit claiming Beyonce.com violates the Americans with Disabilities Act by denying visually impaired users equal access to products and services offered on the site.
A New York woman named Mary Conner who has "no vision whatsoever," according to the filing, claims the website isn't fully accessible for her and for millions of others who have visual impairments.
"The one and only form of entertainment that truly presents an even playing field between the visually impaired and the sighted is the joy of music," writes attorney Dan Shaked in the complaint. "Plaintiff dreams of attending a Beyonce concert and listening to her music in a live setting. However, when she browsed the Beyonce.com website, she encountered numerous barriers which limited her accessibility to the goods and services offered on the website."
