A lawsuit has been filed against NBCUniversal and the host of "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" accusing the show of gender bias, TMZ.com reports.
Former staffer Paul Tarascio alleges in the suit that he was dropped from his job as stage manager because he’s a male, the story says.
According to the legal documents, Tarascio alleges Fallon’s director, David Diomedi, told him, "Jimmy just prefers to take direction from a woman," the piece reports. The lawsuit also accuses the show of victimizing other men, who were allegedly replaced by women at Fallon’s request, the story notes.
Calls to NBCUniversal and Fallon’s representative weren’t immediately returned, the report adds.
