Jimmy Fallon Sued For Female Bias at Work

by at . Comments

Jimmy Fallon is being accused of gender-based favoritism at work. Bu a guy.

A fired staff member's suing Jimmy and NBC Universal for discrimination. In a lawsuit, Paul Tarascio claims he was dropped from his position as first stage manager at Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and replaced by a "totally incompetent woman."

Tarascio thus accuses Fallon of "gender bias."

Tarascio also alleges his replacement was "a less qualified woman" who constantly asked him how to do the job, and screwed up her stage manager duties.

He claims other male staffers on the night owl program, such as audio technicians and a Prop-Master, were also replaced by women at Jimmy's request.

Tarascio says the director said "Jimmy just prefers to take direction from a woman and "knowingly fabricated alleged performance issues" about Tarascio.

Tarascio is suing for punitive damages and lost wages. Calls to Jimmy's rep and NBC Universal were not returned. It's unclear if anyone still works there.
