Tonight Show staffers claim Questlove forced NBC to fire white employees in lawsuit

fired tonight show staffers

If you're innocent: include the texts that you claim you didn't respond to. The cameramen alleged that Questlove advocated for their firing and said that all Caucasian employees who received the message should be fired. And that was never the claim. We have no idea if the firing was based on race, just these guy's claims that it was. The cameramen alleged that Questlove advocated for their firing and said that all Caucasian employees who received the message should be fired.

Questlove has not responded to requests from reporters for comment. They claim they were later fired after Questlove personally made a case to have them cut over their association with the racist text…however Mark Kelly faced no penalties for receiving it. Leno was not on hand for the layoffs. Roth declined to repeat the slur but said it included the n-word. It is not known whether the text was intended to be sent to all three men or if any other staffers were also involved in the group chat. They were just bait for the media.

Fired 'Tonight Show' staffers accuse Roots bandleader Questlove of racial discrimination in $2 million lawsuit

Maybe this is overcompensation for Jimmy Fallon singlehandedly getting Donald Trump elected see and. Maybe this is overcompensation for Jimmy Fallon singlehandedly getting Donald Trump elected see and. Gray, Stro Elliot, Ahmir 'Questlove' Thompson, Tariq? Also: they weren't fired the next day. I say this assuming that is the basis of the idiot's post. Their reaction - perhaps laughing or at least not discouraging - might have encouraged the stagehand to keep sending them racist texts and thus creating a charged environment. I'm guessing the stagehand accidently sent the final text to the black band member though the lawyer deftly makes it look like he was in on it, too. At the same time, they allege in their amended court filing that a third person who received the text, Tonight Show band member Mark Kelly of The Roots, suffered no repercussions despite the fact that he shared the message with other staff members.

Questlove Sued For Firing White Tonight Show Staff Over Racist Texts

fired tonight show staffers

The next day only the 2 white guys were fired. Group text messages are literally Hitler. Trump, 304 electoral votes to 227, defeated compulsive liar in denial Hillary Rodham Clinton on December 19th, 2016. The two white camera operators were suspended the next day, the suit states, yet Kelley was not. They also said Roots bassist Mark Kelley, who is black, received the text message and received no disciplinary action. The racist stagehand might have repeatedly sent these 2 guys racist e-mails and they did nothing about it.

Gray, Stro Elliot, Ahmir 'Questlove' Thompson, Tariq? Both cameramen appeared to enjoy their jobs, and Decker posted a photo of himself singing with The Tonight Show host Fallon, with a gushing caption about his coworkers. Questlove responded to the initial filing back in January by stating: 'Questlove denies the ridiculous allegations made in this lawsuit. They were suspended and then fired. All of this is alleged, of course. The black guy may have been the one who turned them all in, while the other two got their shit giggles in. Or laughed about it hysterically before forwarding to their friends. However, Kelley, who is African-American, was not fired.

Questlove allegedly had ‘Tonight Show’ staffers fired over racist text

If you're innocent: include the texts that you claim you didn't respond to. Notice that the text sender isn't identified. They claim is that by definition their bigotry or racial prejudice cannot be called or defined as racism. Would the stagehand be fired? Was he friends with the cameramen? But only if you are white? This is just another race baiting thread anyway. However, they were each placed on suspension the next day.

But only if you are white? Both cameramen appeared to enjoy their jobs, and Decker posted a photo of himself singing with The Tonight Show host Fallon, with a gushing caption about his coworkers. Typically in circumstances involving text messages with inappropriate content we would only terminate the person if they forwarded the message or were involved with the original message being sent. Thompson is alleged to have demanded both Decker and Cimino be terminated. I'm guessing the stagehand accidently sent the final text to the black band member though the lawyer deftly makes it look like he was in on it, too. Was he friends with the cameramen? On what planet is that normal? Racism can be defined as the social, economic and political domination of one race by another. According to their attorney, Decker and Cimino received the text in question from another crew member but did not respond.

In their lawsuit, the cameramen claim they both declined to respond to the message, which was received in the middle of the taping, and told their superiors they had nothing to do with it once filming was done. I can't wade through the terrible English far enough to get to the puddin'-headed nonsense it seems to be dribbling out. Typically in circumstances involving text messages with inappropriate content we would only terminate the person if they forwarded the message or were involved with the original message being sent. He just wanted to get the staff taken care of first. However, the men feel that they were fired due to their whiteness. Decker and Cimino allegedly did not respond to the message, which was sent in the middle of a show taping.
