Diddy’s Revolt is being sued by five former white employees who believe his Revolt network discriminated against them because of race. But according to the company, the claims have “no merit.”
Per gossip column Page Six, the plaintiffs, all over the age of 39, worked on the Breakfast Club and claim they were fired for not being hip or Black enough.
According to documents, the group of producers suggested that Executive Vice President Val Boreland treated them with less respect than their peers. The suit claims that Boreland “was always rude, condescending and dismissive towards the [team] . . . Ms. Boreland, however, treated the African-American staff in a much friendlier and respectful manner.”
The producers also suggest that their Black counterparts would come into work intoxicated and even sleep on the floor of editing rooms.
Revolt, however, fired back with a statement by their attorney that read: “These claims are without merit and have previously been dismissed by the ECOC [Equal Employment Opportunity Commission].”
Diddy has not commented on the legal matter.
