Cher is sued for age discrimination

by on September 23, 2014

The Telegraph here reports that singer-actress Cher is being sued for discrimination by three former dancers who have performed as part of her stage show for a number of years.

Two dancers (male) allege race discrimination and the third, a woman aged 42, alleges age discrimination. We’ve no further details of the age claim, most of the press coverage has focused on the race aspects.

Interestingly, this article mentions both Cher’s own age (68) and her ethnic background: her father was an Armenian-American truck driver and the ancestry of her actress-model mother may have included Cherokee Indian.
I’m not quite sure why either of these are relevant unless it’s a subtle suggestion that one’s own older age and minority ethnicity make it less likely that one would discriminate on these grounds.
