Robert De Niro’s Company Suing Former Employee, Accuses them of Binging Netflix on the Job
Robert De Niro‘s Canal Productions has filed a lawsuit against a former employee for $6 million accusing them of many misdeeds, including binging Netflix on the job.
NBC News reports the lawsuit against former Vice President of Production and Finance Graham Chase Robinson cites her “breaching her fiduciary duties, violation of the faithless service doctrine and conversion.” The accusations against Robinson include charging “hundreds of thousands of dollars in personal expenses” on the company’s American Express credit card, using petty cash on personal items and falsifying details to receive payment for 96 days of “unused” vacation time.
The most insane accusation, however, has to be that Robinson allegedly watched an obscene amount of Netflix on the job. The following is an excerpt from the lawsuit that details Robinson’s Netflix habit:
“For example, over the 4-day period between Tuesday, January 8 and Friday, January 11, 2019, 55 episodes of ‘Friends’ were accessed (which carried over to an impressive 32 episodes on Saturday, January 12 alone.)”
Robinson watched 87 episodes of Friends on the job over a five-day period?! If anything, she should’ve been fired for simply not working at all! On top of that, Robinson was collecting a salary of $300,000. Imagine being able to make that kind of money by binge-watching Friends on Netflix? Honestly, if Robinson didn’t allegedly get greedy with the company’s AMEX and petty cash, she might have gotten away with all of the Netflix!
