Chris Isaak“s roadies lambasted the handful of women who worked on the singer”s tour, calling one a bitch and a c**t, and hurling shocking homophobic slurs at a male roadie … this according to allegations in a new lawsuit.
Lane Hirsch — who worked on Chris” tour for 17 years as a lighting designer and technician — claims in his suit … he was fired after repeatedly complaining to Isaak and others that the 2 female roadies were treated horribly and he was on the receiving end of crude anti-gay comments.
Hirsch says after he complained that one of the roadies was abusive, a number of his colleagues went after him with a vengeance, calling him a “fag” and a “little girl.” He claims crew members would say, “blow me,” and “suck my d**k you little fag.”
Hirsch also complained of chocking marijuana smoke but no one took him seriously.
According to the lawsuit, Isaak — who is a defendant along with others on his crew — knew full well what was going on but did nothing.
Hirsch says he was unceremoniously fired without notice. He”s suing for wrongful termination, defamation and discrimination.
