Ad agency Anomaly Partners of New York City is illegally discriminating against its ex-employee gay conservative Lucian Wintrich and implying he is a “gay Nazi”, according to documents anonymously leaked to GotNews.
Wintrich was suddenly fired from Anomaly in August over his political views and sexual orientation.
A letter from Wintrich’s lawyers to Anomaly, available in its entirety here on Scribd, says Wintrich faced a hostile work environment before being fired:
Despite his strong work performance, Mr. Wintrich faced hostility from his co-workers and supervisors due to his out of work political and recreational activities.
Wintrich was unfairly singled out for his political views:
Shortly after Mr. Wintrich’s political activity became known, he found himself ostracized and ignored by several co-workers and supervisors. He received a performance evaluation from his direct supervisors Andy Craig and Katie Brown containing several negative critiques of Mr. Wintrich’s performance that were either grossly exaggerated or demonstrably false.
Wintrich’s lawyers detail why Anomaly is breaking the law by firing Wintrich over his political views and sexual orientation:
Anomaly’s termination of Mr. Wintrich violates Section 201-d of the New York State Labor Law, which prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of an employee’s political or recreational activities outside of work.
Second, Anomaly’s termination of Mr. Wintrich constitutes discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in violation of the New York State and New York City Human Rights Laws.
Anomaly not only discriminated against Lucian Wintrich, but canceled his benefits and refused to pay him:
Third, when Mr. Wintrich was terminated, his health benefits were inappropriately cancelled retroactively.
Fourth, pursuant to his offer letter, Mr. Wintrich was entitled to one month’s notice prior to termination. In lieu of such notice, Anomaly may pay him one month’s severance pay. Anomaly, however, has failed to do so and has only offered Mr. Wintrich one month’s severance pay if he signs a release and non-disclosure agreement. Mr. Wintrich is, however, entitled to such payment under his offer letter and is not required to sign any severance agreement in order to receive it. This should be paid immediately.

According to our anonymous source, Anomaly has implied that Wintrich is a “gay Nazi” based on a joke e-mail sent out by an intern in July from an “office pride party.”
Although everyone at the party was wearing a rainbow LGBT flag armband, Wintrich was unfairly singled out for a joke picture where he had his arm raised (i.e. in a supposed “Nazi salute”) and smeared as a Nazi.
Wintrich is most famous for organizing gay pro-Trump art shows at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland this summer and in New York City this month.
GotNews reached Lucian Wintrich for comment. He said:
What happened to me pales in comparison to what is currently happening with Peter Thiel. It’s very disappointing that we have become so partisan as a country that political views contrary to what is considered popular in metropolitan areas are systematically eradicated. This is not even going on covertly, but in full view of the public. Being gay in modern America is applauded, but only if you stick to a very set ideology. If you deviate from that, we see what happens.
Anomaly has not yet redressed Wintrich’s grievances against them.
