Lesbian Chef Sues Celebrity-Laden Hollywood Restaurant

By Neal Broverman

Keyon Wilson, an African-American lesbian, is suing the owner of Hollywood's popular Cleo restaurant after alleging antigay, racist, and misogynist treatment by co-workers.

Wilson was a chef at Cleo, part of the Redbury Hotel near the intsersection of Hollywood and Vine. Wilson claims she was called a "fat ass"; that co-workers made references to Rosa Parks and getting to the back of the bus; that she was quizzed on the sexual proclivities of gay men. Wilson says she complained to human resources, but the abuse continued and worsened. She quit after a month of work and initiated a lawsuit.

Cleo is popular with celebrities like Jamie Foxx; it's owned by SBE, which owns several Los Angeles restaurants and clubs, including The Abbey in West Hollywood, arguably one of the most famous gay bars in the world.
