BUFFALO, N.Y. (April 25, 2014) The Buffalo Bills cheerleaders won’t be making appearances this year after five former cheerleaders filed a lawsuit over pay and working conditions.
Stephanie Mateczun, the manager of the Buffalo Jills and president of Stejon Productions Corp., wouldn't explain the suspension, but two days earlier the five former cheerleaders sued the company and NFL team.
The cheerleaders say they had to work hundreds of hours for free at games and were subjected to groping and sexual comments at mandatory public appearances.
One cheerleader said they had to take a "jiggle test" so their boss could assess their physiques.
The cheerleaders are seeking unspecified back pay and legal fees.
