Before Lipez, Circuit Judge, Baldock, *fn1 Senior Circuit Judge, and Howard, Circuit Judge.

In this age discrimination case, Appellant Dennis Arroyo-Audifred (“Arroyo”) appeals the district court’s grant of summary judgment to his employer, Verizon Wireless, Inc., on his claim that he was victimized by a policy of discrimination and was wrongfully denied several promotions.*fn2 We affirm.

We review the district court’s summary judgment decision de novo, Rathbun v. Autozone, Inc., 361 F.3d 62, 66 (1st Cir. 2004), taking the record facts in the light most favorable to the nonmoving party, and drawing all reasonable inferences in his favor. Iverson v. City of Boston, 452 F.3d 94, 98 (1st Cir. 2006). We will affirm the district court if we find that there is no genuine issue of material fact and the moving party is entitled to judgment as a matter of law. Fed. R. Civ. P. 56(c). We are not, however, required to “accept as true or to deem as a disputed material fact, each and every unsupported, subjective, conclusory or imaginative statement” made by a party. Torrech-Hernandez v. General Elec. Co., 519 F.3d 41, 47 (1st Cir. 2008).
