    Hi AW, where did Erod say he wore it to the office?

    He mentioned it twice in his op, I wondered why he was bringing that particular item up twice when it wasn't really relevant considering he did not actually wear it to work but the implication he made was that the guy is getting paid for wearing a yellow mariachi suit.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I didn't see that at all. He mentioned the mariachi suit by copying the words straight from the article he linked.

    Then when he was posting his own words, it seems he was poking fun at mariachi suits.

    I didn't see him say or imply this guy wore the suit to work.

    Gay people are funny. A yellow mariachi suit? LOLOLOLOLOL

    And a bit of advice, black Americans are tired of you comparing your "struggles" to theirs. It's absurd.

    Rosa Parks? Really?

    I will admit I'd wear a yellow mariachi suit for $60 million. Probably not $50 million though. I have standards.
    Mr. Kane actually defeats his own case since he said "he got no guff" for all of the bright, flamboyant clothing he lists that CNN let him wear.

    The man should instruct his lawyer to settle with CNN for $5,000 so he can go out and invest in some work appropriate clothing and get his ass another job.

    CNN was in the wrong here.

    They probably never should have hired the little bastard in the first place.

    Erod admitted he would get paid 60 million dollars to wear a yellow mariachi suit, so he is implying he would wear a yellow mariachi suit to work then sue the company if they fired him. I was pointing out to him that's not what this guy did so that's not a fair comparison.

    Well, I certainly can't read Erod's mind, but since he didn't make any mention of the guy wearing that suit to work, either in his own words or when he copied words from his link, I wouldn't know what he's implying unless it was there in his words.

    How does he and his lawyer come up with $60 large? Does a microphone tech even come close to making that much dough in their career lifetime? LOL What mental anguish? Pulheese.

    Re: Ex-CNN employee claims boss fired him for being gay, called him ‘flamboyant’ in $

    I want more information on this. From the accounts he is giving, it does sound like the reason he was fired was because his boss/work center (?) was not comfortable with him being gay, not because of the clothes he was wearing or that his actions/attire violated any actual workplace codes for the times in question (he says there was a day that people wore bright colored shirts/clothing).

    There absolutely could be more to this that is not being disclosed here though. The other side would be needed to to really know if he has a case here or not.

    The $60M and "Rosa Parks" thing is a bit much. It has nothing to do with whether or not his lawsuit is warranted, but it would have looked better either way with a lower amount and not having compared himself to Parks. If he wins, hopefully he doesn't get anywhere close to that amount. I can't think of much that would justify $60M for a wrongful firing situation.
