In March of this year, Rosette Laursen states she was working as an assistant at a talent company in the Los Angeles area when she planned to take a day off to take part in the strike. The male she says was her employer supposedly responded to her request with an offending emailed rant, which he apparently intended to send out to someone else.On Tuesday, Laursen broke down the event in a Facebook that’s acquiring attention, using “Jorkle” as a stand-in for the employer’s real name, up until the end of the post when she exposes his identity: Michael Einfeld, of Michael Einfeld Management. According to his website, Einfeld is a talent supervisor for Oscar-, Emmy-, and Tony-winning clients. He says he’s worked with such big-time stars as Hillary Swank, Brendan Fraser and Phyllis Diller, to name a few.
Laursen claims she emailed Einfeld to let him understand that on March 8, the day of the strike, she “would enjoy to invest the day writing, as my profession objective is to be a TV Author, and unfortunately writers’ spaces are extremely dominantly male, even in 2017.”
According to Laursen, Einfeld incorrectly sent out an action that was meant for 2 male coworkers to a group e-mail address. In her Facebook post, Laursen supplied a screenshot of exactly what she declares to be Einfeld’s e-mails and recreated them with slight spelling changes:
“Are you fucking joking me. At the end of pilot season. Somebody should sew her vagina shut. I’m never ever hiring a girl ever once again.”
“No bonus offer for anyone that strikes or leaves early in pilot season. Nobody is striking in program company we are all versus Trump. And females are thought about varied and being pushed in as writer and directors. Zach who is a Jewish male is being pushed out.Uppity Selfish Cunt. Heather went to work. I make certain anybody at a casting office or firm would be fired.”
