Rachael's Show Hates the Skinnies

7/3/2008 1:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

An anorexic guy -- yes, you heard correctly -- says Rachael Ray's show spit him out because he blew the whistle on their skinny-hating ways.

Admitted anorexic Aaron Ferguson just filed suit in Manhattan, alleging that his boss -- the "Rachael" accountant -- slammed the show's executive-in-charge, Priscilla Taussig, as "too skinny to do her job," demeaned anorexics as "sick in the head," and even commented, "Did you see Priscilla today ... all you can see are her sickly bones."

Ferguson says when he went to HR to complain, they digested his complaints -- and then his boss promptly made his life "so miserable" that he had to bail. He claims he was offered $4K to sign a separation waiver.

Aaron wants $1.5 mil in damages. Rachael herself is not named in the suit. Rachael's peeps didn't immediately return a call for comment.

Why are all skinny people attention seekers? At least fat people empower themselves and get on with it.
These boney feckers need to get a grip and get a thick skin. They're just annoying and painful to look at.

Of course people that suffer from anorexia nervosa are "sick in the head", it's a mental disorder that reeks havoc on the physical body!!!!! It's a mental disease!!!... While her comments are completely insensitive, they are not illegal. She did not deny any one of them employment or the right to live because they suffer from anorexia. The most that can be done is suing for harassment when they "made his job hell"- although being offended isn't grounds for harassment.

Why don't you "empower" yourself with a diet? Ugh, I'm so sick of jealous fat people trying to pretend they are high and mighty. You look sloppy and unhealthy, do something about it.

Being skinny, or fat, is not a protected class under our constitution. I seriously doubt the courts are now going to make it one.
