Faye Dunaway's former assistant is suing her. He was fired after he complained to the producers of her Broadway show that she was berating him because of his sexual orientation.
He was regularly on the receiving end of "abusive demeaning tirades" from Dunaway.
On one occasion, he claims Dunaway referred to him and other employees as "Little gay people."
He claims Dunaway again berated him, this time calling him "a little homosexual boy."
He told the lawyer for the play and the general manager about what happened but nothing was done.
He claims to even have the incident on video.
Two weeks later, he was fired and was told that Dunaway "was not comfortable with you anymore."
He believes he was fired in retaliation for reporting Dunaway's allegedly discriminatory behavior.
He is suing Dunaway, the play, a producer and the lawyer for retaliation and discrimination.
Dunaway worked on the play "Tea at Five." She was eventually fired from the play.
