The two people have filed a lawsuit CNN, Turner Broadcasting and Time Warner and blamed them of being racist.
The lawsuit mentioned was submitted by Celeste Henley and Ernest Colbert Jr. Henley. He is ex executive assistant at CNN at the time the lawsuit happened.
“The current workplace culture utilizes practices that discourages or prohibit minorities from exercising their rights under employment discrimination statutes,” they allege in the lawsuit, filed on Wednesday.
These people are represented by Daniel Meachum who has a firm based in Atlanta and clients like Denzel Washington and Bob Johnson. Wesley Snipes was also a client of his at a certain time as well as Michael Vick.
Meachum said that this lawsuit includes aspects of “abuse of power, nepotism, revenge, retaliation and discrimination.”
He also pointed out that other 20 people expressed the same complaints. Turner’s network are CNN, HLN, TNT, TBS,Tru TV Cartoon Network and Boomerang.
Another black man, DeWayne Walker also filed a $50 million lawsuit against CNN last year and complained that he had been experiencing racism.
