Robert De Niro’s production company, Canal Productions, has been found guilty of gender discrimination in the gender discrimination lawsuit, and it has been ordered to pay $1.264 million to the plaintiff.
The Hollywood veteran actor’s former assistant, Graham Chase Robinson, filed a $12 million lawsuit against the actor and his production company, accusing him of gender discrimination and underpaying while adding that he repeatedly used vulgar, inappropriate, and gendered comments.
