Ryan Pacifico was just a normal Long Island guy—working in finance, not a homo. Until his boss found out he was a vegetarian, and started calling him a gay vegetarian homo. Not cool, dude.

"You don't even eat steak, dude. At what point in time did you realize you were gay?" the suit quotes beef-loving boss Robert Catalanello as saying.

Ha, zing! Later his boss called him a "vegetarian homo" and fired him for a "minor infraction." (Well sure, if you consider being a gay vegetarian homo to be a "minor infraction.") Now Pacifico is suing.

Hard to believe that Long Island and finance would find themselves drawn into a story this seedy. [NYP]
