A Rochester, NY meteorologist has already sued the TV station that fired him for uttering a racial slur on the air. Now he filed a lawsuit against the city of Rochester, NY, and its mayor. The Democrat and Chronicle is reporting, Jeremy Kappell is suing the city and Mayor Lovely Warren, claiming Warren's "public condemnation and pressure" on WHEC was the cause of the station firing him two days later. Kappell stands firm that what he said on air was an unintentional. He also says in his suit that Warren publicly said Kappell's use of the racial term was intentional and that the defendants have caused him "great pain and anguish," marred his reputation, and hurt his career. "Because of [Warren's] actions, my family and I have suffered greatly these past many months and unfortunately she has taken zero responsibility and has shown no willingness to move towards a resolution. She left us with no other option." A lawyer for the city of Rochester issued a statement that said Kappell's allegations "are contradictory to the sworn statements made by Jeremy in my office on May 14, 2019" and that "he was fired before the mayor and the City Council president issued any public statement regarding his racial slur."
