Lawsuit claims man was fired for being ‘homo vegetarian’
A vegetarian Wall Street trader says he lost his job after he refused to eat meat with his boss. Ryan Pacifico has filed a lawsuit that claims he was fired for his vegetarianism. According to the suit, Pacifico’s boss said, “You don’t even eat steak, dude. At what point in time did you realize you were gay?”
While Pacifico is heterosexual, the lawsuit claims his boss called him a “homo vegetarian.”
Fox’s Megyn Kelly disagrees with lawsuit. “What a crock. He was fired because of his perceived sexual orientation because his boss teased him about being gay? To steal a phrase from prince, ‘Welcome to this thing called life.'”
