(BLAST) — Two former of employees of “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” claim they were fired at the behest of Questlove and they feel they were targeted because they were white.
According to a lawsuit obtained by The Blast, Kurt Decker and Michael Cimino were working on the show as camera operators on June 19, 2017 when they received “an unsolicited racist and misogynist text message from a Tonight Show stagehand.”
They claim a third person, Mark Kelley — a bassist for The Roots — also received the message. Kelley is African-American.
