Worst defense award: ‘She’s too ugly to harass’

A Brooklyn woman filed a sexual harassment claim, saying she faced a gauntlet of both verbal and physical sexual harassment in her first year working at a realty office.

The company owner’s response? First, he talked to the local newspaper (not smart) and, second, he defended his staff by saying, “Who would want to touch her? She’s an ugly girl anyway” (super not smart).

Now the owner faces a lawsuit, which could get really ugly.
