Boss fired worker after finding out about mental illness: suit

Mental illness and marketing don’t mix for an exec who allegedly canned a worker with the diagnosis, according to a lawsuit.

Writer Easton Anspach claims boss Michael Blatter, who heads the Manhattan-based Mirrorball, questioned his “trustworthiness and believability” after finding out Anspach once struggled with mental illness.

Anspach’s two years at the agency were spent dealing with Blatter’s antics, he charges in Manhattan Supreme Court papers accusing the boss of constantly commenting on the bodies of female employees; grilling Anspach about his dating history and sexuality; having the scribe review the married Blatter’s online dating profiles and even using Anspach’s Airbnb to carry out his affairs.

A lawyer for Blatter and Mirrorball denied Anspach’s claims, adding they’d “defend the matter vigorously.”
