A woman named Alison McDaniel filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Justin Timberlake and three of his business partners today, the highlight of the suit being her claim that during her time as a manager in Timberlakes New York City restaurant, she was locked in a room with two male managers as they watched porn and laughed at her when she started to cry. Umm, yeah, yeah that should do it. The Daily News says…
McDaniel claims Timberlake business partners Eytan Sugarman and Ronnie Kaplan are guilty of “vile and discriminatory conduct.”
McDaniel, 29, said her job as general manager became an X-rated nightmare in which she was spit on, pelted with expletives and subjected to porn.
“In at least one instance, defendants Sugarman and Kaplan viewed … pornography while in a locked room with McDaniel and made fun of her when she began crying,” the suit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court claims.
McDaniel, who worked at the Second Ave. restaurant for a year, was fired after she wrote a memo complaining of the harassment, the suit claims.
Her claims are almost hard to believe because the scenario she describes with the porn is so outlandishly, unthinkably illegal. Her lawyer probably saw nothing but a talking bag of money sitting across the desk when Allison explained all this.
