"Report: Playboy Producer Sues Over Sexual Behavior, Racial Comment
Friday, September 19, 2008
"A former producer for the Playboy Radio show "Night Calls" has filed a hostile workplace lawsuit claiming she was subjected to a sexually and racially hostile environment, TMZ reports.
Terri Hughes claims that during a live, three-hour broadcast, she was repeatedly asked to enter the studio and wax the buttocks of co-host Christy Canyon.
"Hughes claims Canyon created a hostile environment by, among other things, "exposing her genitals and breasts to co-workers, making requests to guests and co-workers to touch her genitals and breasts and masturbating herself with her own hands as well as with various sex toys during live broadcasts of 'Night Calls.'"
"Hughes, who is African-American, also alleges that when the host of another Playboy show — who was also an African-American woman — asked to have Hughes to work on her show, the executive producer of Playboy Radio warned, "I don't know how to say this, and it might offend you, but I'm just going to say it anyway — no Negro shows."
"Hughes is seeking unspecified damages, according to TMZ."
You go to work for a sex industry and are harrassed and on some level you are surprised an offended enough to sue? Makes no sense. What the helk did you think they were going to do? Now if the industry is going to be immoral in the sex part why would they be all moral and PC in the race part? This is almost as bad as the Hooter's waitresses filing suit claiming harrassment!! DUH!
