If this is all true, it's crazy that her co-workers were so bold...
Fashion Icon Tory Burch LLC - Black, Bisexual, Ex Employee 'I was treated horribly!'


A black, bisexual woman has sued her former employer -- the company run by high-end fashion designer Tory Burch -- claiming her manager and co-workers put a big fat target on her head because of her race and bisexuality.

Jessica Jones filed the lawsuit, claiming she worked at the billionaire designer's flagship store in Bev Hills from July 2011 to July 2012 -- and during that time, Jones claims she was called everything from a "disgusting" homosexual to a "n***er."

In the docs, Jones says her manager and co-workers treated her like dirt, telling customers and clients not to work with Jones because she was gay. Jones says her manager referred to Jones' girlfriend as "that thing that comes to visit her at work."

On her lunch breaks, Jones says her manager would regularly ask if Jones was getting fried chicken.
Jones claims she was eventually forced to resign because of the treatment she received.
Jones is suing Burch's company -- as well as her manager and others -- for unspecified damages.
Burch was not accused of wrongdoing herself in the the lawsuit and she is not named as a defendant.

Calls to Burch's rep were not immediately returned.

How can you be bisexual if you are actively gay...is this another Frank Ocean move or Fad to ease oneself into trueself? Terrible thing this worker had to endure such verbal hardship and mental torture. I am glad she quit instead of continuing with such primitive work conditions. I bet that flagship store will learn a very easy lesson when MS Burch clean house for such bad publicity.

So that they wont be called racist. Ultimately, they'd expect someone who quit or accept that type of treatment, but  not actually sue or take action.

Haven't you heard?  We're post-racial now.  Keeping your racist-ass thoughts to yourself is sooo mainstream.  Ermm

I believe it. White people are letting their racism come out more now and giving less of a fuck.

White people and ugly history, like PB&J.

Are you asking how someone can be bi if they're currently seeing the same sex in an exclusive relationship?

The fashion world...from corporate all the way down to retail is extremely gay friendly, to the point where being straight is a rarity. So those claims are pretty...interesting, especially while working in Bev Hills.

Now being treated like sh!t because of her nationality is a different story lol.

It will be interesting to see how this story infolds.

Side note: I find everything Tory Burch to be disgustingly overrated.
