UPDATE (11/16/11 11:20AM): Brookfield Properties just fired the d-bag who called Joey Boots a faggot.
John Del Signore with Gothamist reports:
Matthew Cherry, a spokesman for Brookfield, tells us, “His comment was offensive and inexcusable, and we have a policy of zero tolerance for such behavior. In accordance with our code of conduct he’s been terminated from his work with Brookfield.” Cherry clarified that the unidentified man was a security subcontractor; when asked what company was doing the subcontracting and whether it was still under contract with Brookfield, Cherry declined further comment.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg commanded police to forcibly remove all Occupy Wall Street protestors and their belongings from Zuccotti Park so that Brookfield Properties—the company that owns the park—could clean and re-open the park sans overnight protestors.
LGBT videographer, ex-military veteran and occasional Howard Stern guest Joey Boots recorded the Brookfield Properties employees standing around in neon vests. They said very little, except for one guy who told Boots, “Your fly’s open, faggot.” Now the unnamed employee is a YouTube star!
Enjoy your 15 minutes, hater.
