Two Black women are filing a lawsuit against their FOX News for “top-down racial harassment.” [Water is also wet].
Tichaona Brown, a payroll manager, and Tabrese Wright, a payroll coordinator, are suing Judith Slater, the company’s longtime comptroller who was fired just last week, Fox News, and 21st Century Fox, according to The New York Daily News.
“We are confident that the good men and women of the Bronx will hold Fox accountable for what we believe to be its abhorrent racist conduct, reminiscent of the Jim Crow era,” the plaintiffs’ lawyers, Douglas Wigdor and Jeanne Christensen, said in a statement.
In their complaint, Brown and Wright accuse Slater of a long list of racially insensitive actions, including impersonating stereotypical black voices, mocking the Black Lives Matter movement and making a number of inappropriate statements about a range of ethnicities.
This past Monday, Brown was transferred out of the payroll department and Wright was fired.
It appears this will lead to yet another controversy for the news station as it’s still attempting to repair itself after former chairman Roger Ailes was accused of sexually harassing and seeking to pay off multiple female employees.
