Jimmy Fallon Accused of Sexual Discrimination by a Dude

Paul Tarascio, a former stage manager for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, has filed a sexual-discrimination complaint claiming he was demoted and eventually fired because Fallon allegedly "just prefers to take direction from a woman." Tarascio, a veteran of Late Night who worked for Conan O'Brien for fourteen years, insists that his female replacement is less qualified and that he was let go as a result of "fabricated performance issues."
