In keeping with the traditional theme, a washed-up Hollywood blowhard and known hater of President Donald J. Trump has been slapped with a multimillion dollar lawsuit by a former female employee, who accused him of being “creepy” and “abusive.”
“Robert De Niro routinely subjected his longtime employee to creepy and abusive behavior, including leaving her voicemails threatening ‘you’re f—ing history’ and calling her a ‘bitch’ and a ‘brat,’ an explosive new lawsuit charges,” according to Page Six.
Why is it always the moralizing male feminists in Hollywood who end up being accused of lewd behavior towards women, in the workplace and otherwise? It’s becoming an undeniable pattern – as though male feminism is simply a cover for leftist perversion and deviance.
Graham Chase Robinson alleges that she was the victim of “gratuitous unwanted physical contact” and “sexually-charged comments” when she worked for De Niro’s production company, Canal Productions Inc., according to the lawsuit filed Thursday. She filed the $12 million suit in a Manhattan Federal Court, alleging “gender discrimination and wage violations.”
“Robert De Niro is someone who has clung to old mores. He does not accept the idea that men should treat women as equals,” the lawsuit said. “He does not care that gender discrimination in the workplace violates the law. Ms. Robinson is a casualty of this attitude.”
Robinson claims that De Niro treated her as his “office wife,” and made her do “stereotypically female duties, like housework” on the job, all while underpaying her and denying her overtime pay. Strange behavior for a guy that parades his morals all over cable television while bashing Trump as morally inferior.
The lawsuit also alleges that he would greet Robinson in only a bathrobe or pajamas. De Niro is decades older than Robinson.
“Among other things, De Niro would direct Ms. Robinson to scratch his back, button his ties and prod him awake when he was in bed,” according to the lawsuit. “De Niro also stood idly by while his friend slapped Ms. Robinson on her buttocks.”
“Robinson said she had to endure De Niro’s jokes about his Viagra prescription and that he directed her to ‘imagine him on the toilet,'” Page Six said. “De Niro suggested that Ms. Robinson could get pregnant using sperm from her (married) male co-worker.”
De Niro also reportedly became enraged when Robinson failed to answer his phone calls.
“You f—ing don’t answer my calls? How dare you! You’re about to be fired. You’re f–king history,” he reportedly said.
There is an audio file of that phone call recording in the lawsuit.
De Niro opened the Tony Awards, which he hosted in 2018, by raising his arms in the air and yelling “Fuck Trump,” to which the liberal Hollywood audience responded with glee. He has pulled several such stunts since then, letting America know how displeased he is with the current occupant of the White House, bravely standing alongside every single one of his Hollywood colleagues in sharing the exact same opinions as them.
His most recent blowup came on “Reliable Sources” on CNN over the weekend. It’s unclear why the show, hosted by the unreliable Brian Stelter, thought that bringing in a Hollywood actor as some kind of expert on politics, would bolster its reputation.
