Cincinnati-based radio and television talk show hosts Bill Cunningham is being sued by a Muslim woman who says she was being asked to move out of camera range during a taping of his television show because she was wearing Muslim garb.

Nicole Johnson — a devout Muslim — says she attended a February taping of “The Bill Cunningham Show” in NYC wearing a traditional head covering — a hijab — as her religion requires.

Johnson claims in a new lawsuit — obtained by TMZ — show employees forced her to leave her front row seat and sit in the cheap seats … because they didn’t like the way her hijab looked. She also claims she was prohibited from asking a question during the show.

Johnson says she suffered mental anguish and embarrassment.

    These shows even take good looking young girls in mini skirts out of the cheap seats and put them up front…it’s called “staging”.

    This clowns show is more of a joke than anything serious or entertaining.
    A self moralizing egotist know it all quickly loses anyone’s interest.
