A former CNN employee claims he was fired because he’s gay and wore bright colors and mariachi outfits to work that were deemed “too flamboyant,” according to a $60 million discrimination lawsuit.
William Kane, who started working at CNN in 2002, claims nobody at the news network ever informed him of a dress code or complained about the hot pink designer shirt he wore in his employee ID photo. Nor did he get any guff for the bright red track jacket, neon green soccer jersey or yellow track suit, with matching shoes and hat, that he wore at other times.
Come on, I’ve been known to go out in public wearing a Red Wings jersey and Bermuda shorts, and even I know those are fashion no-no’s. Is it possible they fired him because his outfits were causing epileptics to have seizures?
Not like Mr. Kane is a major drama queen or anything.
“I feel like the Rosa Parks of CNN.”
Nope, not delusional at all.
