Apparently, sombreros aren’t considered business casual at CNN.

A gay ex-CNN staffer from Queens claims he was discriminated against and eventually fired for wearing extravagant ensembles that included mariachi suits, yellow track suits and cowboy hats to work.

In a $65 million Brooklyn federal lawsuit filed Thursday, former CNN studio technician William Kane claims that a supervisor, John Silva, hated his taste in clothes and recommended that he transfer to the makeup or entertainment units.

Kane asserts that several on-air personalities — including Anderson Cooper and former talk show host Piers Morgan — objected to Silva’s treatment of Kane and rushed to defend his zeal for out-there fashion.

It’s tempting to say, they deserve one another.

Frankly I don’t know why they didn’t welcome the gay ranchero. I mean it’s like they were already cheering for these kinds of folks long ago.

From Queens... oh, groan!!

Well given the way CNN is so gaga for this stuff, I guess he was too gay for even them.

On a serious note. There is such a thing as a dress code for work. Even if the news division is run by Mickey mouse, doesn’t mean you should dress like goofy.

Oh, but he was entitled to dress “Gaily” because he was “gay.” (Why wouldn’t a rainbow business tie be enough?)

And nobody dare challenge it, or they’ll get all the wrath of hell on them.

Maybe enough of this nonsense... and even liberals will see what a plague this “gay entitlement” is.

My eyes are burning. And by “burning” I mean “smoking, bubbling, melting, and running down my face”.

WTF is wrong with a cowboy hat? Mariachi suits and yellow track suits I get. But cowboy hats? Were they lime green and studded with emeralds or something?

This goes beyond sexuality. This guy is a plain old attention hog. He wants to be a bigger star than the hosts.
