When Judd Apatow Humor Goes Bad


When Robert Catalanello, a managing director at Calyon, the corporate and investment-banking arm of the Crédit Agricole, asked his vegetarian underling Ryan Pacifico, “At what point in time did you realize you were gay?” he was probably expecting a sassy answer, like, “When I started working at Gay-lon,” or “When I started chugging cock,” because that’s what any self-respecting 29-year-old, having digested the requisite amount of Judd Apatow, Will Ferrell, or Vince Vaughn movies, would say. But unfortunately, the legal system has not yet caught up with comedy, and Pacifico — who is married and according to Facebook a fan of Jesus and the Church of Latter-Day Saints, instead decided to sue his boss for unspecified “compensatory, emotional, physical and punitive damages.” Harsh realm.
