TAMPA, Fla. – A University of South Florida student says Disney officials told him he didn't fit the "Disney look" when he applied for a job.
Now, 24-year-old Sukhbir Channa is suing Disney World. He claims the company discriminated against him because of his turban and uncut hair, which his Sikh religion requires.
He was applying to be a trumpet player during the 2006 holiday season.
A Disney spokeswoman says they have no record of Channa applying for the job then and that the company does not discriminate against anyone.
The suit was filed in Tampa on Monday where the university is located and where the hiring process took place. He's seeking $1 million in punitive damages.
