BSO- The wife of an NFL player says she worked in a real-life “Wolf of Wall Street’’ office where co-workers sexually harassed her and openly mocked her marriage to a black man.
“How many cheerleaders has your boyfriend f–ked today?” Philippa Okoye, 27, who is white, said her boss sneered at her at their deVere Group office in Manhattan, according to a new federal lawsuit.
Referring to Okoye’s now-husband, British Olympic athlete and San Francisco 49er defensive tackle Lawrence Okoye, the boss allegedly added, “He’s probably f–ked the whole cheerleading squad by now.’’
Philippa said that another time, a worker near her announced, “I think it’s disgusting when white women go out with black guys.’’
A second worker said, “Don’t change your surname [to Okoye] if you marry Lawrence, because people will think you’re black,’’ she said.
“Yeah, and that’s not good for business,’’ Alderson allegedly added.
According to Philippa’s suit, Benjamin Alderson what that office to be like a movie. He used Wolf of Wall St. and Boiler Room as examples.
“In those films, employees of male-dominated investment firms used highly offensive language and engaged in extremely inappropriate conduct, including sexual harassment and drug and alcohol use in the workplace.”
Hey, you've got to use the tools that are at your disposal to make money in this country. If that happens to be a black husband then so be it. Does second hand discrimination count? You know how when you get married some employers let you include your spouse on your health or dental insurance? Does discrimination work the same way? Like now Phillippa and her husband are just one entity and whatever happens or is said to one of them is basically said to both of them? I think I can get down with that. Finally, A good fucking reason to get married. To take your scumbag employer for all he is worth. Got to love a white woman suing another white person for racial discrimination. Our country has fallen so far down the rabbit hole that I think I sneaky love it. You can claim almost anything as discrimination and garner sympathy. The words discriminatory and mean are basically synonymous now.
If I am deVere Office Group I am not too sure I want to piss off the husband that is an NFL defensive end and a former Olympic athlete. Kind of makes the the whole federal lawsuit seem like a secondary concern. As a man there is a certain code you have to adhere to. First of all, never cause another man's wife distress. I bet you Lawrence Okoye is more upset that he has to come home to his wife bitching about work than he is about her employer being a racist cunt. The last thing a man needs when he walks in the door is a wife that wants to talk. If Phillipa's coworkers are guilty of anything it's giving her conversation pieces. Second of all, you never out another man for sexual infidelity. Now, I don't know if Okoye is slamming cheerleaders on the side or not, but the last way he would like to be caught doing so is by a wife that had a seed of doubt engrained in her head by her bigot boss. So yeah, on the surface it seems strange for a white person to cry racism, but this women should win her lawsuit. If not because of the prejudice these men portrayed than for the inconvenience they cause this NFL player in his own home. Or we could just let Lawrence take the law into his own hands. Pretty sure the guys at deVere would rather be broke than dead...
