    Default Archie Comics CEO Being Sued for Discriminating Against Male Employees

    It doesn't sound like the story has fully developed yet, but so far...

    As expected, Silberkleit has countered these claims with the standard "I'm outraged" boilerplate, claiming that the charges are "cruel, mean, and inaccurate." However, she also says that the allegations don't "rise to the level of gender discrimination," most likely because white men aren't in a "protected class."
    As it turns out, the protected class is gender, not women. So men ARE, in fact protected by law from such things.

    —Silberkleit stalked her future husband all the way to headquarters yelling, "Let me in you son of a b*tch, I'm pregnant and you better take responsibility."

    —She sought to bring Hell's Angels to headquarters "in an effort to intimidate" employees, and eventually brought in an ex-NFL player.

    —She became enraged after hearing the staff gave a cancer-stricken girl a Betty wig.

    —She stalked employees "as we well as their families."

    It goes on and on.
