Right-Wing Host Sued For Anti-Muslim Discrimination
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.
