Schumacher’s family announces lawsuit against weekly magazine after interview with Amnesty International

Schumacher has not been seen in public since he suffered severe head injuries in a skiing accident in December 2013. The family has always looked after the German’s health.

So it attracted a lot of attention in Germany when Die Aktuelle recently adorned the entire front page with an archive photo of the seven-time Formula 1 world champion and the promise of a “global sensation”.

The headline read “Michael Schumacher, first interview”. In the same case, it turns out that the quotes were generated using artificial intelligence. It was not well received by Schumacher’s family, as confirmed by the spokesperson Reuters They plan to sue the German weekly.

Veegard Jansen Hagen, leader of the Norwegian Sports Journalists Association, almost believes what he sees.

– There is only one thing that can be said about this: madness! And if one had to say two more things: It was unheard of, Jansen Hagen tells Netavien.

– Fortunately, this is not something for serious newsrooms to deal with. Some of nachspiel’s ideas should never see the light of day. This is one of them, says Jansen Hagen.

In a Netflix documentary from 2021, Schumacher’s wife Corinna revealed a little about everyday life within the family.

– We live together at home and do everything so that Michael gets better and feels comfortable. He should feel connected to the family. He used to say that private is private. It is very important to me that he continues to enjoy his privacy as much as possible. She said that Michael has always protected us, and now we are protecting Michael.
