New York, May 16 (ANI): Pop star Justin Timberlake’s Southern Hospitality restaurant has been slapped with a sexual discrimination suit, after a fired employ accused her employers of harassment.

Shockingly this is the second time in 6 months that Timberlake’s Upper East Side barbecue joint has been sued by a former employee, according to reports.

In the suit, former employ Alison McDaniel claims that Timberlake business partners Eytan Sugarman and Ronnie Kaplan are guilty of “vile and discriminatory conduct.”

McDaniel, 29 revealed that she was spit on, pelted with expletives, and subjected to porn.

“In at least one instance, defendants Sugarman and Kaplan viewed … pornography while in a locked room with McDaniel and made fun of her when she began crying,” the New York Daily News quoted the suit, filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, as claiming.

Though the publicist for Southern Hospitality had no comment, Timberlake and his best friend Tracy Ayala have been named as defendants.

McDaniel also alleged that another hostess who was fired was nicknamed “that ghetto girl at the door”.

McDaniel, who worked at the Second Ave. restaurant for a year, was fired after she wrote a memo complaining of the harassment. (ANI)
