Rockmond Dunbar sues Disney and 20th Century Fox after leaving “9-1-1” over vaccine status
911 star Rockmond Dunbar sues Disney and Twentieth Century Fox after he was removed from the show “9-1-1” due to mandates for the vaccine, despite the fact that he claimed his faith.
TMZ received court documents showing that Rockmand claimed he was one of the black performers starring in the show, and his removal affected his career.
According to the documents, Rockmond notes that he sent all the necessary documents for medical and religious exemption from the vaccine against COVID-19, and that his employers said they wanted him to stay on the show and make changes to his schedule because he has not been vaccinated. .
“I applied for religious and medical housing in accordance with the law, and unfortunately my employer was refused. My sincere beliefs and private medical history are very intimate and personal aspects of my life that I do not discuss publicly and do not want to start now. I have been an actor in this business for 30 years but have the most important roles in being the husband and father of our 4 young children. As a person who walks in the faith, I look forward to what the future holds. I have enjoyed the last 5 seasons with this wonderful actor and team, and I will appreciate the time I was happy to spend with this series, and I wish everyone involved nothing but the best, ”he wrote after the release.
However, he was no longer allowed on the set and was told that his character would briefly leave the show to return later, but this was not the case. He also claims that Disney and 20th Century Fox fired him from the country for not paying him the money he allegedly owed.
Rockmand adds that the studios also gave the impression that he was an anti-boxer in Hollywood, allegedly blacklisting him in the industry.
Rockmand wants studios to pay, and wants studios not to be discriminated against on the basis of race or religion in terms of vaccination insurance policies.
