Civil Rights Abuse Complaint Filed Against NBC
On May 30th and May 31st, former MTV VJ Carson Daly advocated for sex crimes on NBC’s The Today Show.
Despite Civil Rights laws, Carson stated his full support for female-only viewings of the upcoming movie “Wonder Women” to be held at Alamo Drafthouse Theater in Brooklyn, New York. Daly then denounced the efforts of author and filmmaker Jack Posobiec to simply view a film without discrimination on the basis of his gender.
The movie "Wonder Woman" hits theaters Friday, but one theater chain has stirred controversy online by barring men from…www.today.com
Jack Posobiec then filed a formal complaint with the NYC Human Rights Commission against both Daly and the Drafthouse for this clear violation of the law.
New York Consolidated Laws, Civil Rights Law § 40-c. Discrimination states:
No person shall, because of race, creed, color, national origin, sex, marital status, sexual orientation or disability, as such term is defined in section two hundred ninety-two of the executive law, be subjected to any discrimination in his or her civil rights.
NY State Law also has a specific provision for “Wrongful refusal of admission to and ejection from places of public entertainment and amusement”
Such action is considered a Human Rights Violation under New York City Law.
