Rapper and music mogul, Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs is reportedly being sued by five white men for “reverse discrimination”…. claiming they were fired for being too old and white.
The former Revolt staff, Douglas Goodstein and four other producers, who’d previously worked for “The Howard Stern Show,” say they were hired by the network back in January 2014 and produced its popular urban talk radio program “The Breakfast Club” that airs mornings on Power 105.1 FM.
Now, the producers, who are all white and over age 39, claim they were “treated worse than other employees because they weren’t younger and African American.”
Executive Vice President Val Boreland “was always rude, condescending and dismissive towards the Goodstein Production Team,” the Manhattan civil suit claims.
But instead of using the word “racial discrimination”, the group of men are calling it “reverse” discrimination. The men also said that “production assistants would often come to work late, drunk and slept on the editing floor during work hours and suffered no repercussions for this behavior.”
It’s however unclear how much the men are suing the network for but an attorney for the channel said, “these claims are without merit and have previously been dismissed by the [Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.]
