Archie Comics Bigshot -- Accused of 'Penis' Taunting

7/8/2011 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The female co-CEO of Archie Comics is accused of going on a phallic outburst in the office recently ... allegedly pointing at employees and shouting "PENIS, PENIS, PENIS, PENIS."  Oh, Archie!

Archie Comics Publications has filed legal papers against co-CEO Nancy Silberkleit -- claiming she has a history of bullying and sexually harassing employees ... and she must be stopped!

According to the lawsuit, filed yesterday in NY, several employees have lodged complaints about Nancy's "offensive" behavior ... including one time in 2009, when she barged into a meeting and "pointed to each [attendee] and said, 'PENIS, PENIS, PENIS, PENIS' and then walked out."

Nancy allegedly pulled the same "penis" stunt again in 2010 -- but this time she also screamed out, "My balls hurt."

Archie Comics claims it hired an outside firm to investigate the allegations -- and the company recommended Archie cut ties with Nancy ASAP.

Now, Archie wants a judge to grant an injunction -- barring Nancy from returning to the office ... and preventing her from representing the company at the upcoming Comic-Con in San Diego.

Attempts to reach Nancy were unsuccessful.

She's gotta go. Who needs that bad judgment? Was she the one who greenlit the horrible Archie movie where they're all having sex? Terrible.

Funny in everyday life, but in business it's harassment and intimidation. You have to filter yourself in the office.

Amateur headliner, For the real juicy stuff just check Gerard Jones book 'Men of Tomorrow: Geeks Gangsters and the Birth of the Comic Book' and Bryan Talbot's 'The Naked Artist: Comic Book Legends'the comics industry has a wild and crazy history to it that makes soap operas and true life scandals look boring, Everything to how Superman creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster were shafted by the company they helped build thanks to their creation or the story of how one well known artist after his boss tore up his paycheck in front of him, then hung his boss out the window by his ankles.

I agree with MightyMad if it was a man yelling "tits, tits tits" it would be sexual harassment.

Jon Goldwater is up to no good and has been since day one at the helm. The company has been turned on it's side and Mr Goldwater has gotten his employees to take sides in an effort to take control and throw Nancy out. Additionally, artists such as the legandary Stan Goldberg have been tossed aside (after 40 years) as the ultimate Archie Ambassador for no apparent reason. Goldwater will run the company into the ground and that is the ultimate shame of it all. Nancy has to hold her ground (this lawsuit will never stand), put a plan into place to have an equal voice and restore a sense of sanity and direction (including hiring back Stan Goldberg) into Riverdale once more.
