Jimmy Fallon Sued For Being Too Straight

Thursday, July 29 by

A former stage manager on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" is suing the show and host for sexual discrimination. But not the sexy Bill O’Reilly kind. The other kind where Fallon didn’t want to be groped by men. What a jerk he is.

Paul Tarascio of Oradell has filed the complaint with the U.S. Equal Opportunity Employment Commission and the New York Division of Human Rights. He claims he got demoted and then fired from his job on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” because, he was told, “Jimmy just prefers to take direction from a woman,” his lawyer tells us. The complaint also alleges that Fallon wanted only female technicians to place microphones on him, and only after a succession of women weren’t up to the task, he allowed a man, someone he’d worked with previously, to do the job.

When reached for comment, Fallon tried to tell a joke but giggled uncontrollably and nervously played with his hair. That’s what we get for hiring Horatio Sanz as our field reporter. (Warming Glow)
