Lack of Melanin Matters: Producers claim Diddy’s Revolt fired them for being white and old



Reverse racism is real AF if you let a group of disgruntled ex-Revolt employees tell it.. as a small production team is suing the network for firing them due to their Caucasian backgrounds…


In a shocking plot twist, five white men are dragging Sean “Diddy” Combs’ entertainment company with charges that they were barred from working behind the scenes on Power 105.1 FM’s popular morning show, The Breakfast Club, due to their serious lack of melanin.
According to the lawsuit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, obtained by The New York Daily News, former Revolt staffers, Todd Baker, Richard Wilson, Michael Schiff, Jason Preziosi, and Douglass Goodstein claim they were ostracized, mocked, and ultimately given the boot by Revolt execs after being hired in Jan. 2014 because they didn’t get “the culture”–though an understanding of the black community wasn’t necessarily a job prerequisite.
“The true reason that Revolt terminated the Goodstein production team was because they were Caucasian and much older than their replacements,” the suit says. “Revolt treated them worse than other employees who were younger and African American.”
The group of complaining men–the youngest of whom being 39-years-old– go on to accuse Revolt executive vice president, Val Boreland, of being “rude, condescending and dismissive,” towards them while condoning consecutive acts of NSFW behavior exhibited by their black co-workers…

“Revolt tolerated a particularly high level of unprofessional behavior by the Breakfast Club’s African-American staff. Specifically, such African-American employees arrived to work intoxicated or hung over,” the suit reads.
The pouty production guys– who have years of experience working on the Howard Stern Show–go on to allege that the network ultimately slipped them some pink slips in December 2014 and replaced them with inexperienced black employees.
They are seeking damages to be determined at trial.
In response to the messy charges being made against its good name, Revolt issued a statement reading, “These claims are without merit and have previously been dismissed by the (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission). Revolt Media and TV, LLC has always been committed to diversity in the workplace and is an equal opportunity employer.”
The suit does not name Power 105.1 or The Breakfast Club as defendants..

And so far no one from the radio station has commented on the legal chaos..
