Family sued by homeowners assocation because granddaughter's playhouse is pink! (VIDEO)

In completely bizarre news, a Georgia family is being sued by their homeowners association …all because their four-year-old granddaughter's backyard playhouse is pink. Uh, what?

Under the association's rules, certain structures--like sheds and garages--have to be approved not only before being built, but also before being painted. Homeowner Becky Rogers-Peck had reportedly gotten permission to build the playhouse, but had not specified that she was planning on making it pink, which is apparently a grave wrongdoing in the eyes of the association's members.


After a few neighbors complained about the pink playhouse in April (which can't even be seen from the front of the house!), the HOA took action. The dispute has been ongoing since then.  "Part of the approval is the color," Susan Bradley, HOA president, told August NBC station WMBF. "We didn't disapprove of the play house. We disapproved of the color of it."

Seriously?! Since when is having a pink playhouse a crime? Don't these people have anything better to do with their time than pick on a little girl and her family? And why are the neighbors complaining about it if they can't even see it from the outside the house? They'd have to be purposefully peeking into the family's backyard just to get a view of the damn thing….which actually wouldn't surprise me, since they sound pretty nosy and obnoxious.

The entire thing is just ridiculous. I mean, taking legal action over a child's toy? Talk about excessive! The members of the association should grow up and leave the poor girl alone to enjoy her playhouse. At the end of the day, no matter what they say, painting something pink is not a real offense.
