Diddy’s Revolt TV sued for reverse discrimination

 

  • execs turned a blind eye to the behavior of “African-American employees who arrived to work intoxicated or hung over,” the suit says
  • When Baker complained about the lack of punctuality of the show’s guests, production manager Cherisse McKenzie allegedly said “he just did not understand the ‘culture’ of the show’s guests and on-air personalities.”
  • One production assistant “often came to work late, drunk and slept on the editing floor during work hours,” the suit says

 

( Page Six ) A production team for Sean “Diddy” CombsRevolt TV is suing the cable and radio network, claiming reverse discrimination — saying they were fired for being old white men.

Douglas Goodstein and four producers, who’d previously worked for “The Howard Stern Show,” were hired by Revolt TV in January 2014.

The team produced its popular urban talk radio program “The Breakfast Club” that airs mornings on Power 105.1 FM.

But the producers, who are all white and over age 39, say they were “treated worse than other employees who were 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.

“Ms. Boreland, however, treated the African-American staff in a much friendlier and respectful manner,” according to court papers.

Meanwhile, execs turned a blind eye to the behavior of “African-American employees who arrived to work intoxicated or hung over,” the suit says.

One production assistant “often came to work late, drunk and slept on the editing floor during work hours,” the suit says.

Yet he “suffered no repercussions for this behavior.”

….When Baker complained about the lack of punctuality of the show’s guests, production manager Cherisse McKenzie allegedly said “he just did not understand the ‘culture’ of the show’s guests and on-air personalities.”

PHONY! MODERN APPEALING CLOTHING ( MAC )SUING IVANKA TRUMP ALTHOUGH ‘MAC would rather make a friend than a sale’…really?

Posted on Updated on

 

MAC is suing Ivanka but according to an interview, they don’t care about sales: ‘One of the rules I learned early on about MAC is we’d rather make a friend than a sale’

San Francisco based Modern Appealing Clothing ( MAC ) is suing Ivanka Trump for ‘unfair competition’. The  suit also asked for a restraining order that prevents the Ivanka Trump label from being sold in California. MAC is described as a “San Francisco’s fashion Wonderland”. It  was founded in San Francisco by brother and sister Ben and Chris Ospital, with their mom, Jeri, in 1980.

While Ivanka’s clothes are classic chic, Modern Appealing Clothing (MAC) just complete opposite:

The merchandise is high-concept fantasy” with “collections of independent brands and local designers with out-of-the-ordinary visions

Ben Ospital:We all had a radical streak. Mom and Dad supported Cesar Chavez, and at 12 I was making signs for United Farm Workers protests.

Ben: We still say today what we said then: “Dress one person well, they’ll tell 20 people.” That’s how things started.

Goble: One of the rules I learned early on about MAC is we’d rather make a friend than a sale. I understand through Ben, Chris and Jeri’s guidance the importance of the karma of clothes.

IVANKA TRUMP’S BRAND SUED OVER “UNFAIR COMPETITION” AND WANTS CALIFORNIA BAN HER PRODUCTS

Posted on Updated on

The looney libs are upset that they did not destroy Ivanka’s business with their lame boycott. Their latest looney trick is a lawsuit against  Ivanka filed by San Francisco-based retailer Modern Appealing Clothing. The suit wants to ban Ivanka’s products from being sold in California. Modern Appealing Clothing was founded in San Francisco by brother and sister Ben and Chris Ospital, with their mom, Jeri, in 1980.

( Hollwood Reporter  by Stephanie Chan ) A class-action lawsuit against the first daughter’s company has been filed by San Francisco-based retailer Modern Appealing Clothing.

Although Ivanka Trump has distanced herself from her namesake brand, the business can’t seem to catch a break. The first daughter’s company has been sued by a San Francisco-based retailer over “unfair competition.”

Modern Appealing Clothing (MAC) has filed a class-action lawsuit against Ivanka Trump Marks LLC, claiming that the defendant has gained unfair advantage “from Donald J. Trump being the President of the United States and from Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared, working for the President of the Unites States,” according to court documents published by the International Business Times.

The suit was filed in the San Francisco Superior Court on Thursday.

The lawsuit says President Donald Trump and counselor Kellyanne Conway provided publicity for Ivanka’s lines and therefore helped boost its sales. Donald defended his daughter on Twitter, saying that Nordstrom was treating her unfairly when the retailer announced it would be dropping her line due to declining sales. Conway appeared on Fox & Friends in February and told viewers to “go buy Ivanka’s stuff.”

Online searches for Ivanka’s brand did increase in February, according to Refinery29, which cited a report from e-commerce aggregator Lyst. The brand’s sales increased by 346 percent from January to February and 557 percent in February compared to same period in 2016. Abigail Klem, president of the Ivanka Trump brand, also told Refinery29 that the brand has surged in the past six months.

Resale site ThredUP, however, reported that sellers are putting their Ivanka Trump products up at an increased rate.

The suit also asked for a restraining order that prevents the Ivanka Trump label from being sold in California. The doc read, “As a result of their unlawful acts, defendants have reaped and continue to reap unfair benefits and illegal profits at the expense of plaintiff MAC and the Class it seeks to represent.”

Modern Appealing Clothing was founded in San Francisco by brother and sister Ben and Chris Ospital, with their mom, Jeri, in 1980. MAC, which is described as “San Francisco’s fashion Wonderland,” has locations in Hayes Valley and Dogpatch.

 

 

 

 

 

TRUMP FAN GREG PIATEK SUES NY BAR ‘THE HAPPIEST HOUR’ FOR REFUSING TO SERVE HIM BECAUSE OF HIS TRUMP HAT

Greg Piatek is suing a New York City bar ‘The Happiest Hour’ after bartenders and owner Jon Neidich refused to serve him drinks because he was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.

The New York Post reported:

Bartenders at a West Village hot spot served up discrimination — with a liberal twist — refusing to serve a customer because he was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, according to a lawsuit.

Greg Piatek, 30, an accountant from Philadelphia, claims he was snubbed and eventually 86’d by workers at The Happiest Hour on West 10th Street over his conservative fashion statement, popularized by Donald Trump on the campaign trail, he told The Post.

“Anyone who supports Trump — or believes what you believe — is not welcome here! And you need to leave right now because we won’t serve you!” Piatek claims he was told as he was shown the door by a manager.

The shake-up started when Piatek and two pals, after a visit to the 9/11 Memorial, ordered drinks at the posh tavern around 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 28.

A female bartender served Piatek a $15 jalapeño margarita and his pals beers. But when he tried to order a second round, a male bartender noticed his hat — and skipped them, he said.

One of Piatek’s pals pointed out it was their turn to be served, but the bartender scoffed. “Is that hat a joke?” the Manhattan Supreme Court suit claims.

“Immediately it clicked,” Piatek said, adding that bartenders didn’t see the pro-Trump slogan until he turned his back to the bar.

“Ignoring me because I’m wearing the hat is ridiculous,” Piatek said. “It’s really sad.”

The “flustered” bartender got them a second round but allegedly “slammed the drinks down.”

Bar owner Jon Neidich did not respond to calls. A manager at the bar refused to comment.

EU THREATENS TO SUE COUNTRIES REFUSING MUSLIM REFUGEES…THEY WANT STUPIDITY ACROSS THE BOARD!

EU threatens to sue countries refusing migrants

By Timon Dias Gatestone Europe

 

Euractiv reports:

“Today Commission First Vice-President Frans Timmermans threatened court action against countries that refuse to relocate refugees. The first infringement procedures, which could result in fines, may be launched as early as next month.”

These ‘infringement proceedings’ are part of the European Commission’s instruments to enforce its will on rebellious member states, this time being Austria, Denmark, Poland and Hungary.

In 2015, the EU agreed that by September 2017, 160.000 migrants would be resettled from Greece and Italy to other member states. With only seven months to go, only 8,162 people have actually been resettled, leaving a gap of over 150.000 people.

JILL STEIN SUES WISCONSIN, BUT MUST PAY $3.5 MILLION BY TOMORROW IF SHE WANTS WISCONSIN RECOUNT TO BEGIN ON THURSDAY – MEANING: NO RECOUNT WILL HAPPEN UNLESS STEIN DROPS THE LAWSUIT!

Posted on Updated on

 

JILL STEIN UPDATE: STEIN SUES WISCONSIN FOR REJECTING HAND RECOUNT REQUEST. SHE MUST PAY$3.5 MILLION BY TUESDAY FOR WISCONSIN RECOUNT TO BEGIN ON THURSDAY.

Okay, so she’s suing because she wants a hand recount. Wisconsin is ready to start a recount on Thursday as long as they pay tomorrow the $3.5 million cost. If Stein will wait for result of her lawsuit, then don’t expect any recount to happen yet. If she drops the lawsuit and pay tomorrow, then she’d get the recount on Thursday.

‘Unless Stein wins her lawsuit in Dane County Circuit Court, officials in each of Wisconsin’s 72 counties would decide on their own whether to do their recounts of the 2.98 million statewide votes by machine or by hand, with dozens of counties expected to hand count the paper ballots.’

 

 

Madison — The Wisconsin Elections Commission agreed Monday to begin a recount of the presidential election on Thursday but was sued by Green Party candidate Jill Stein after the agency declined to require county officials to recount the votes by hand.

It will be a race to finish the recount in time to meet a daunting federal deadline, and the lawsuit could delay the process. Under state law, the recount must begin this week as long as Stein or another candidate pays the $3.5 million estimated cost of the recount by Tuesday, election officials said.

Also Monday, Stein filed a lawsuit in Pennsylvania to force a recount there and her supporters began filing recount requests at the precinct level in the Keystone State. Stein — who received just a tiny piece of the national vote — also plans to ask for a recount in Michigan on Wednesday.

Unless Stein wins her lawsuit in Dane County Circuit Court, officials in each of Wisconsin’s 72 counties would decide on their own whether to do their recounts of the 2.98 million statewide votes by machine or by hand, with dozens of counties expected to hand count the paper ballots.

Recount would start Thursday

Under the plan adopted Monday, the Wisconsin recount would begin Thursday, provided Stein, De La Fuente or both paid the $3.5 million by Tuesday. County officials would have to complete their recount by 8 p.m. Dec. 12 and then the state election commission would prepare the official recount for certification by Dec. 13 — the deadline for guaranteeing that the state’s electoral college votes are counted.

If Monday’s cost estimate is high, Stein and De La Fuente will get a refund but if the costs come in above expectations they will have to pay more.

Stein has taken in $6.5 million since Wednesday through an online fundraising blitz to fund her recount efforts. A spokeswoman for De La Fuente said he is considering his options for paying for his share of the recount.
