A former security employee of a company affiliated with Facebook head Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan says a boss was way out of line with her and even was racist against Chan.
The former employee, Mia King, is suing two of the richest people on the planet, saying her boss called her “ghetto,” her lawsuit claimed.
King worked at Limitless, starting in 2018 and said the discrimination began nearly right off the bat.
Her manager at the firm, Liam Booth, repeatedly made statements that she was not qualified for her position and that she was only hired because she is a black woman, according to the suit, which was filed in California state court late last month, according to the New York Post .
Booth also allegedly said King’s hairstyle was “unprofessional” and called her and other black people “ghetto” and even took a shot at Meghan Markle, saying she had “polluted the royal bloodline.”
The suit also alleges Booth made many homophobic or racist statements — not directed at King, but toxic nonetheless, she claimed.
Booth also allegedly blamed Chan for a car accident, “while pulling back his eye lids and commenting that Asian women are notoriously bad drivers,” the suit said.
King said she made many complaints that didn’t go anywhere. She was “terminated” from Limitless in February 2019.
A second suit has been filed by someone else, according to reports.
“The man, identified as John Doe in court papers, claims Booth groped him during an event at a sushi restaurant and once during a visit to Zuckerberg’s Montana property,” according to the report.
Zuckerberg and Chan are named in the suits in their capacity as employers who allegedly allowed the discrimination to take place.
