NYC Real Estate Firm Sued for Appreciating Fat Commissions, Not Fat Gays

“A manager for real estate giant The Corcoran Group is suing the company, claiming he was fired for being fat and gay. Jason Riggs alleges Corcoran President Pam Liebman was ‘obsessed’ with diets, people’s weight and gyms and discriminated against him because he was hefty. The suit in Manhattan Federal Court says Liebman gossiped about how Riggs had ‘ballooned up’ since starting with the company. He contends Liebman didn’t like gay men and shunted off Riggs and another gay man to the den during a Thanksgiving dinner at her home.” [NYDN]
