Sometimes employers don’t bear the brunt of fired employees’ ire.
Menorah Park, a senior living center in Beachwood, found itself in the midst of an Internet war after one of its employees slung cyber-mud at self-proclaimed media maven Perez Hilton.
Hilton, who runs a popular celebrity website, posted something online that incensed Diane Wargo, a Menorah Park nurse. Wargo fired off an e-mail from her work PC in which she called Hilton, among other things, a “fat gay pig.” Hilton, naturally, posted the e-mail.
The result was a flood of nasty e-mails back at Wargo and, by association, her hapless employer. The nursing home fired Wargo.
And now Wargo is suing Hilton for $25 million, charging that he is responsible for her firing.
