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.

Bev Hills I swear. About 20 years ago my mom was walking back to her job in Beverly Hills where she first started teaching and was told "Go home NGGER"! by someone passing by her in a car.

Most people know not to respond to me    I know that question will cause a stir of educating me and then a Black windstorm of putting me down with no cape in sight    Just got it out of the way just in case some poor soul asked. More of a warning...

If its all true, I hope she documented well and has evidence so she can make their asses pay.

I'm surprised people would harass her about sexuality in that industry and in California tho.

2013 is a new year. People have changed for the best and we must all believe it long enough for it to actually happen. The manager of the store better have solid proof that he and the workers did not behave that way because they are TOAST! If I was MS Burch I would be totally pissed! For the life of me I don't know what one's sexual preference has to do with performing a job? My requirement would be look cute. Dress cute. Behave professionally. Punctual. Articulate. Why would I care who you dating unless who you were dating was hanging around the store non-stop then there is a problem gay/hetero/bi.

I've always wondered what type of black person puts up with this on the job for so long....especially if u aint bringing in monster size bread...even then.. like how.... The first time it happened best believe there would of been a personal folder started and some recordings..cause id own the place once it was over.

I hope the chick has some good evidence or else this will go no where.

In a recession people put up with a lot more from employers than they normally would. Any job is a good job especially out in Cali where times are really hard for people.

Glad she had enough courage to speak out. I do hope she documented her experience though.

Im sure ppl do put up with a lot but these type of cases have been going on long before the recession. Regardless of the recession.... I dont think I could deal with my own boss calling me a n!gg-er day in and day out and just smile through it for a pay check.  Like i said Id  stay just long enough to record the shh again...and then file my case.

NO! I spilled my guts to you and everyone else about my birth. Respect my history by acknowledging Foxyroy!    By any other name it is NOT as sweet.

I hope she wins but I highly doubt the part where the other salespeople told clients to not work with her because she was gay true.
