Fox News is facing a lawsuit from a former technician who alleges that while at the network, he faced “daily abuse, fear and humiliation” from other employees because of his race, and when he eventually complained, he was fired.
One instance occurred during the 2008 presidential campaign. According to the complaint filed by Harmeen Jones, 32, who is African-American, two of his coworkers said in front of him that they wouldn’t feel comfortable having a black president. Jones alleges that one of the men looked at him, saw he was uncomfortable and said, “[A]m I offending your blackness?”
Another example came during the health care debate, when he and his co-workers were working in the “intake room” with screens showing footage from a tea party rally. “[T]his is what happens when you mess with white people’s health care,” one of the men allegedly told Jones.
Jones filed the complaint in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, naming Fox News and seven of his former colleagues as defendants. He is seeking $5 million in damages.
“Fox News has not received a complaint and therefore cannot comment,” a spokesperson said in a statement to The Huffington Post.
