ABC 7 Editor Sues Reporters (and Disney) for Racial Harassment


Apparently Gerardo Lago, a longtime photographer and editor for WABC (the local New York ABC affiliate), has gotten tired of his colleagues doing that thing where they TALK REALLY LOUDLY AND SLOOWWWWLY to him because they think he doesn’t understand English, even though he is fluent and speaks with only a slight accent. So he’s suing reporters Lauren Glassberg, Kemberly Richardson, and Stacey Sager for harassment. And, for what it’s worth, he’s suing ABC and parent company Disney. Because, apparently $18 million is what it’s worth, and three daytime reporters aren’t coming up with that.
