A chef who claims she was insulted and called anti-gay and racist slurs while working at Cleo Restaurant, a Hollywood eatery popular with celebrities, is now suing over the alleged discrimination.

When Keyon Wilson joined Cleo as a line cook Sept. 21 2012, she was the only African-American person in the kitchen. Her discrimination and harassment lawsuit, filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, claims that immediately after Wilson started working, colleagues and supervising chefs hurled insults and slurs at her.
