Arnold Schwarzenegger is suing a company that made a robot of him

When Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “Terminator” character said “I’ll be back,” this probably wasn’t what he had in mind. The actor and former governor of California is suing a robotics company for $10 million, after the business decided to use his name and likeness. Schwarzenegger’s lawsuit against the tech startup, called Promobot, alleges that the robot lookalike... “diminishes his hard-earned and well-deserved reputation as a major motion picture star,” according to TMZ. The robot isn’t just meant to look like Schwarzenegger, it also has his name. Promobot advertises the creation on its site as a “companion robot,” one of several that emulates the appearance of world-famous celebrities. According to Digital Trends, the Schwarzenegger robot has a few traits that differ from its human counterpart, including glasses and a British accent. Promobot reportedly asked Schwarzenegger to pose for a photo they could use on their site. Schwarzenegger denied the request, according to TMZ, and his lawsuit has asked that the company stops rolling out its version of “Arnold". Promobot originally agreed to that request, but Vice reported that the startup later rolled out the companion bot for a display at the New York Toy Fair. The company seems to have backed off for the time being, as Vice also reported that Promobot has stopped selling the Schwarzenegger model online . Other celebrity-based models, like Christiano Ronaldo and Albert Einstein, are still being promoted
