Archie Comics Bigshot -- Accused of '[sexual]' Taunting

Archie Comics Publications has filed legal papers against co-CEO Nancy Silberkleit -- claiming she has a history of bullying and sexually harassing employees ...

According to the lawsuit, filed yesterday in NY, several employees have lodged complaints about Nancy's "offensive" behavior ... including one time in 2009, when she barged into a meeting and "pointed to each [attendee] and said, '[clinically descriptive term for the male reproductive organ]' and then walked out."

Nancy allegedly pulled the same "[clinically descriptive term for the male reproductive organ]" stunt again in 2010 -- but this time she also screamed out, "My [slang for testicles] hurt."

Not surprisingly it appears that this woman is the person largely responsible for the recent attempts to "modernize" Archie by adding gay characters and whatnot to a kids' comic.

Is she the one who gave Reggie herpes and insinuated that Jughead was “doing” Moose?

For a minute there I thought Moose was getting sued.

I was confused about why the company would need to go to court, in case others are confused here is the final part of the short piece “Now, Archie wants a judge to grant an injunction — barring Nancy from returning to the office ... and preventing her from representing the company at the upcoming Comic-Con in San Diego.”

I guess since she is the CEO they can’t just fire her? The board has to do that?

She sounds a little nuts. If this behaviour is sudden and unprecedented maybe they better try and get her some help.

“Archie Comics Publications has filed legal papers against co-CEO Nancy Silberkleit — claiming she has a history of bullying and sexually harassing employees ...”

And no man at Archie Comics Publications had the testicular fortitude to stand up to this hell on wheels and teach her a bit of respect.

Like a FReeper who recently posted on a different, but related topic, he quoted his grandmother who said something to the effect that “Men can be bad, but when women go bad they are just evil.”

As that famous saying goes, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”

And the men at that company did nothing until now...as a group.

What horror am I missing?

A simple search on the “Archie-Veronica” search engine would have found all the earlier stories on this. :-)

j/k

When I was a kid I had a few Archie digest’s, they weren’t too bad. I’m just surprised seeing them at the grocery store, that anyone these days would still read it.

Are you really so frightened you are scared to print the word PENIS?

Sad.

I work for a silly little woman whose main claims to competence are frenetic attention to niggling details and her inability to stop swearing. The swearing seems to be considered cute toughness or tough cutness by most of the fat old bald guys in charge.

I’m not frightened, only cognizant that some Freepers are too quick with the ‘notify’ button and some mods are too quick with the ‘delete’ one.

If I were one of her employees and she called me that, I’d stand and take a bow.
