Mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs’ music cable television channel is being accused of discriminating against older whites even though it tolerates younger black employees who turn up to work drunk and hung over, it was reported on Tuesday.

A group of producers for a syndicated radio show that is simulcast on Combs’ Revolt TV is suing after they said they were fired because they are white and older, according to Page Six. The suit was brought by Douglas Goodstein, Todd Baker, Richard Wilson, Michael Schiff, and Jason Preziosi, a team of producers who once worked on the television side of Howard Stern’s radio show. In January 2014, the producers were hired by Revolt TV to air The Breakfast Club, a drive-time morning radio show that airs locally in New York on Power 105.1 FM. The show, which is hosted by DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and Charlamagne Tha God, can also also be heard nationally in over 50 markets. The producers say they were singled out for mistreatment because they had difficulty understanding ‘the culture.’
