(Scroll down for video) A gay employee who was dismissed from a hair salon, filed a lawsuit against his employer for discrimination, according to court documents in France.

The court has ruled that calling a gay employee a dirty faggot is not considered discriminatory because a lot of hairdressers are gay.

However, it did find that the slur was insulting, and ordered the hair salon to pay the employee, who was not identified, $5,700.

The employee vowed to appeal the decision, saying that he was fired because of his sexual orientation. The employee told the court that he was fired after taken sick days off, which he was entitled to.

The boss sent him a text message, saying that he does not have a good feeling about him because he is a dirty faggot. Labour Minister Myriam el Khomri called the court ruling shocking, and said that it is a blow to gay rights in the country.
