A man is suing the Houston Rockets and the catering company he previously worked for after alleging that Rockets players made homophobic slurs inside the locker room during a game at the Barclays Center in 2013.
Resean Tate has filed a lawsuit claiming he was fired from his job as a server after reporting the disparaging comments made by players while he was setting up the buffet table in the visiting locker room.
Here's more on the story from the New York Post:
“When the plaintiff’s back was turned to defendant Rockets players, he began to hear laughter and taunting voices saying ‘get this f—– out of here!’ according to the suit. “‘He’s trying to catch a sneaky peaky!’”
Tate said he was slowly phased out of his server job after reporting the comments to his supervisors. According to the suit, Tate was let go due to his sexual orientation.
No players were singled out by name in the suit. However, this certainly doesn't reflect well on the Rockets organization as a whole, if true.
