A news writer with PBS who was fired for expressing admiration of Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, complains of a double standard because his female coworkers were heard saying Justin Trudeau was “hot” without similar consequences.

The unexpected Canadian content appears in a civil lawsuit filed in New York by Hugh Heckman, alleging wrongful termination because of his gender.

Heckman, 72, was working on a story about Prince Harry and his then fiancée, actress Meghan Markle, on Nov. 25, 2017, according to his statement of claim.

He was looking at a photograph of Markle with another male employee when he said “not bad.”

An editor for PBS Newshour Weekend mumbled “ not bad ” at a photo of Meghan Markle , outraging colleagues and resulting in his termination, according to a Heckman said he’d heard those same two women say that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was “ hot .” That remark resulted in no

Two women in the office spoke out against the comment, his claim states.

One woman, sitting some six metres away and unable to see the photo in question, his claim says, said his comment contravened company training on sexual harassment in the workplace; another said “Haven’t you learned?”

Heckman denied his comment had a sexual connotation.

It was, he claims, “intended to convey that the Duchess (of Sussex, as Markle is now known) possessed charm and beauty and was a suitable match for her fiancé, who has a reputation of possessing charm and handsome looks.”

“No reasonable woman would consider his remark to be a sexual comment about the Duchess,” he says in his complaint.

Heckman complained of their complaints. He said he “felt that this over-policing of his innocently intended remark, and its being twisted into an accusation of sexual harassment, was unduly punitive and said so.”

Former " PBS Newshour" editor says he was terminated based on his sex after saying that Meghan Markle was " not bad ". A former editor for “ PBS NewsHour” Heckman said he’d heard those same two women say that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was “ hot .” That remark resulted in no

Before she began dating the man who is fifth in line to inherit the British throne, Meghan , 35, was best known for her role in the legal drama 'Suits.' She also ran a now-defunct lifestyle blog, worked as a freelance calligrapher, and did charity work with the UN and World Vision.

Two days later he was fired, he said, without being questioned about the incident.

Heckman said the two women who complained had themselves both engaged in workplace commentary that objectified men.

The two “had been looking at a picture of a man, specifically, Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau, and stated that he is ‘hot,’ intended as a reference to Mr. Trudeau’s sex appeal,” his complaint says.

His employer “took no action on this complaint, undertook no investigation and imposed no discipline on the female employee.”

That, he says, is a double standard that punishes him as a male employee.

“Defendants enforced their policies regarding sexual harassment in a manner that was discriminatory, specifically that they dismissed a male employee with no investigation within two days, but took no action when placed on notice of a similar remark by female employees in the presence of witnesses,” says his complaint, filed in U.S. District Court in the Southern District of New York.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Baby's Last Name Will Most Likely Be This

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Baby's Last Name Will Most Likely Be This Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are going to be parents! The Duchess of Sussex is pregnant with her first child, and Harry really hopes it's a girl. We already have some idea of what Meghan and Harry could name the tiny tot, but what about the royal baby's last name? Since Prince William and Harry are brothers, will the baby's last name be Cambridge? Actually, no. Since Harry and Meghan were given the royal titles of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex by Queen Elizabeth II when they tied the knot back in May, the baby's last name will most likely be Sussex.

The complaint alleges that Heckman “immediately explained that he had not intended any sexually harassing You think Genghis Khan would have gotten butt hurt if some chick said he was ' not bad ' at conquering and raping the lands? I won’t pity any journalist who gets fired for being stupid.

The woman — a transatlantic TV star don’t forget — has 1.1 million followers on Instagram, where It’ s just that it ’ s probably fair to say that Meghan Markle is not a shy and retiring individual who hungers Meghan Markle looked super sleek in her faux leather pencil skirt and bodysuit ensemble

Statements of claim contain allegations that have not been proven in court. PBS has not yet filed a defence.

His lawyer, Jillian T. Weiss, said the firing does a disservice to complaints of workplace harassment.

“There are many serious cases of sexual harassment going on, as we know from the #MeToo movement, and then we have this one. That makes people question the seriousness of these issues,” Weiss said in an interview.

Heckman seeks changes to PBS practices and training to “provide equal employment opportunities for employees based on sex” as well as unspecified compensation for lost earning and for humiliation and loss of professional reputation.

Attempts to contact PBS NewsHour on Thursday were unsuccessful.
