Revolt TV has been hit with a lawsuit by a group of White guys claiming that the music platform served them a pink slip for their lack of understanding the culture of the network.
The producers, who were fired in December 2014, worked on the televised broadcast of the popular Power 105 talk-radio show, “The Breakfast Club.” With years of prior experience working on programs such as “The Howard Stern Show”, the suit claims they were treated, “worse than other employees who were younger and African-American” and that Val Boreland, executive president of the station, treated the Black staff in a much “friendlier and respectful manner.”
A case of reverse racism, eh?
The New York Post reported that the lawsuit was filed at the Manhattan Supreme Court and quickly made its rounds on social media. The headlines even caught the eyeballs of Power 105’s The Breakfast Club’s Charlamagne, when it appeared that the radio show was caught in the mix of the racial suit.
Charlamagne took to his Instagram to dispel reports that the suit had anything to do with their morning radio show and the station overall.
Man this is hilarious to me. For the record they suing Revolt TV and talking about Revolt TV not Power 105 or “The Breakfast Club” but this article is still hilarious!!!! Lawsuit says “The white people got fired for not knowing the culture” I mean most executives at all these companies don’t know the culture and need to be fired but that’s not the point. I been laughing for 10 minutes straight. Please make the distinction between Revolt TV, Power 105 and the Breakfast Club we are not the same. Thanks. #BlackPrivilege
