‘House M.D.’ superiors accused of doing drugs
It looks like there is fire behind the scenes of the hit TV Show House M.D.
A former employee had sued the producers of House M.D. and is claiming damages for the emotional stress and physical injuries that he endured on the set.
Celebrity news source TMZ.com reports that former assistant prop master Carl Jones is suing Universal for more than $1,000,000 in damages. Jones had alleged that he was harassed by his former superiors for refusing to engage in: “visits to strip bars, participation in getting drunk, stoned or intoxicated on cocaine, to participate in sexual conduct at the trailer, and other dangerous conduct.”
Jones and the other employees had also suffered derogatory name-calling such as “fags, pussies, bitches, slaves, dummies, retards and idiots.” He also said that the superiors had always brought a gun on set and sometimes engaged in knife throwing.
He said that his refusal to engage in such activities had caused him to be refused from future work on the set of House.
As of press time, Universal had no comment on the case.
