Shit is about to get A LOT worse over at Fox News, and it couldn’t happier to a shittier cable news network.
Even though Bill O’Reilly may be gone, and Roger Ailes, too, it’s not just a rampant culture of sexual harassment that went down at the network for years: it was also horrible, disgusting racism.
Who could have guessed that?!
Seven employees are on the verge of joining a racial discrimination suit against the network that was filed last month by two colleagues, according to media reports out Sunday morning.
According to sources, at some point next week, these seven black employees will join up to get nine total Fox News workers in a lawsuit filed against Fox itself and the network’s longtime comptroller Judy Slater.
The suit holds that Slater subjected payroll staff to racial insults for years!!! Slater herself was fired in February when the original suit was filed, but things are about to get a LOT worse at Fox.
That’s because Fox’s accounting director, Tammy Efinger, is also at issue in the suit, after she allegedly participated in Slater’s racist behavior and failed to reprimand the comptroller in any way.
A letter from the lawyers filing the suit on behalf of these employees reads:
“Not once did Ms. Efinger step in or attempt to interfere with Ms. Slater’s outrageous conduct. Ms. Efinger chose to laugh or giggle following Ms. Slater’s vitriol.”
It goes further than that, though, with brand new allegations that Slater used to demand that black employees hold “arm wrestling matches” in her office:
“Forcing a black woman employee to ├óΓé¼╦£fight’ for the amusement and pleasure of her white superiors is horrifying. This highly offensive and humiliating act is reminiscent of Jim Crow era battle royals.”
This whole network sounds crazy!!!!
Just how deep does this disgusting Fox News culture go?!?!
Get ’em off the air!!!
