Three African-American Fox News employees have filed racial discrimination lawsuits against the station, adding to the numerous allegations and scandals against the network over the last year.

According to most recent reports, Monica Douglas, Fox News' manager for credit collectors, claims in a new court filing that former comptroller Judy Slater made racist comments to her for years, allegedly pressuring her to refrain from reporting them to HR.

Douglas claims executives at the network were aware of the incidents, but ignored the situation.

In court documents, Douglas said Slater harbored "an unwillingness to even be near black people," claiming that she often commented on Douglas' "black eyes" and noted that her looks were far from the "Aryan race."

Douglas also alleged that Slater ridiculed her cancer battle, calling her "cancer girl," "boob girl" and "the one-boobed girl."

"Your boobs look like they are different sizes — oh, that's right, you only have one boob," Slater once said, according to the suit.

When Douglas went to Fox's general counsel Dianne Brandi over the matter in 2014, she claims that "nothing was done."

Slater was fired last month amid racist claims from two other employees. The network issued a statement soon after, insisting it takes complaints of that nature "very seriously."

Meanwhile, the network continues to face sexual harassment allegations regarding big wigs Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly.

Update

"We take complaints of this nature very seriously and took prompt and effective remedial action in terminating Judy Slater before Ms. Brown, Ms. Wright and Ms. Douglas sued in court and even before Ms. Wright and Ms. Douglas complained through their lawyer. There is no place for conduct like this at Fox News, which is why Ms. Slater was fired," a spokesperson for Fox News told Radar in a statement.
