The former editor of self-proclaimed “hip hop bible” The Source just got awarded $14.5M from her lawsuit with the magazine over her firing and sexual harassment.

 

A federal jury in Manhattan yesterday ruled that the rag and its two founders, David Mays and Raymond “Benzino” Scott must pay $14.5 million to Kimberly Osorio, who described a “raunched-out workplace where executives watched porn, smoked pot and called female employees ‘b------.’"

 

The jury needed only four hours to find that Osorio was fired in retaliation for complaining about the environment at the magazine. They also said that Benzino defamed her during a radio interview when he accused the single mom of bed-hopping with hip-hop honchos.

 

"This verdict shows that all women must be treated with dignity and respect, no matter what industry they work in," said Osorio's lawyer, Kenneth Thompson, who replayed a recording of a raunchy telephone call in which Scott called a music writer an "ugly butch pig" and a "slut monkey."

 

Hmmmmm, I just called a someone a “whore banana.” Is that okay or am I gonna get sued?
