The NY Daily News reported Monday that a new lawsuit is alleging that Former Trump Economic Council Director and now Fox Business host Larry Kudlow “repeatedly made racist and sexist remarks during staff meetings and even blocked an on-air appearance by a Florida congressman because he is Black.”
Kudlow told his Fox staff not to book U.S. Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.) as a guest because he did not want “the Black” on his show that day, according to a lawsuit by a Fox producer.
The lawsuit was filed by a Fox producer named John Fawcett, who “also alleged that Fox News contributor Andrew Napolitano sexually harassed him in an elevator in 2019, with network execs allegedly Ignoring complaints aganst Napolitano
the Fox producer said network executives also dismissed complaints against Kudlow. Fawcett, 27, has worked for Kudlow since host Lou Dobbs was fired in February.
The lawsuit claims Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott has failed to stop discrimination at the network, call her “zero-tolerance” policy a “fraud.”
A “zero tolerance” policy for sexual misconduct preached by Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott is “a fraud,” Fawcett says.
“Sexual harassment, sex discrimination and racial discrimination are still tolerated at Fox,” the lawsuit states. “And Ms. Scott and her executive team will bend over backwards to protect such behavior so long as it is perpetrated by senior management or prominent on-air personalities.”
The lawsuit was filed in Manhattan Supreme Court.
