A Fox News producer has launched a lawsuit against the media giant alleging that a producer on Tucker Carlson’s Fox show made fun of a Jewish employee for shopping at a “Jewish bakery” to “see his people,” according to Business Insider.

The suit also claims that other Jewish staffers faced ongoing discrimination for being Jewish.

The lawsuit was filed by Abby Grossberg in Manhattan court against Fox News and several Fox executives.

The suit alleges that a Tucker Carlson Tonight producer made offensive statements to another producer of the show who is Jewish. The Jewish employee had gone to a Jewish bakery during the holiday season in 2022 where he had purchased a babka which he brought to the office.

"When [the first producer] learned that there was babka in the office, he began to loudly and obnoxiously demand that the [Tucker Carlson Tonight] booking team have 'the bread made by the Jews,'" according to the suit.

Every time subsequently when the Jewish employee went to the bakery, the producer allegedly "loudly proclaimed to the [Tucker Carlson show] booking team that [the Jewish employee] went to the 'Jew bakery,' and that he had gone 'to see his people,'" the suit further claims, describing the "incredibly demeaning and offensive conduct made even worse by the fact that [the employee] endorsed others in the office to repeat these offensive remarks."

A spokesperson for Fox News told the Insider: "This allegation is patently false and never happened."

But Grossberg’s lawyer Parisis Filippatos described to the news outlet that the suit "very clearly depicts victimization by Fox" of Grossberg and the other Jewish employee.
