Fox News host Harris Faulkner has a rodent problem. And she wants $5 million because of it.

In a lawsuit filed Monday in U.S. District Court in New Jersey, Faulkner is suing Hasbro because she says a "Little Toy Shop" hamster shares her name and likeness. The toy is also deemed a choking hazard, the suit says, which causes Faulkner distress for being associated with "harming small children."

She calls out "complexion, the shape of its eyes, and the design of its eye makeup" as evidence that the company stole her identity.

To be fair, the hamster does share the same name. But as far as looks go, you can decided that for yourself.

If you want to own your own little piece of Fox News history, Ebay has an original Harris Faulkner for $40.52.

Presumably this man hasn't been to a movie in the last forty years, and seems unaware that the toy comes from PG rated film Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. One of his daughters says the toy is "creepy," but when Fox contacted Target Headquarters about it, they said "We have not received any other guest complaints about this product. If the guest has a question we recommend they reach out directly to Target's guest relations team."

Welcome to parenting in 2015, y'all.

Update: The actress who played Princess Leia, Carrie Fisher, has responded to the 'controversy' saying,
