TBS manager, who never worked for CNN, launches discrimination suit against TBS & CNN

TMZ reports that a mid-level quality assurance manager, Wanda Byrd, is suing TBS for racial discrimination — and lumping CNN in with it, even though she’s never worked for the news network.

Both properties are owned by Turner Broadcasting.

Byrd says she was passed over for a promotion to a senior level position at TBS, and claims a less-skilled and qualified white man got it.

She wants to make this a class action suit against TBS, CNN and Time Warner, TMZ notes.

TMZ reached out to both TBS and CNN for comment but didn’t receive one.
