MATT LAUER’S SEXUAL ASSAULT INCIDENTS AT ‘NBC’ REVEALEDDecember 1, 2017
As expected, the sexual assault allegations about Matt Lauer have been nonstop, and they’re all disgusting.
The incident that was reported on Monday of this week to NBC’s HR team took place during the 2014 Sochi Olympics and led HR to believe it was not an isolated incident. Of course, they were right. Some complaints include Matt Lauer summoning female employees to his office and proceeding to assault them. If they did not comply, he would reprimand them. He went as far as to gift a staffer a sex toy with instructions on how he’d like to use it on her.
The creepiest part is that Matt Lauer had a pervy Dr. Evil button in his office that allowed him to lock the door of his office without getting up. This allowed him to trap female employees in his office without the fear of intruders.
Many of these women say they expressed their discomfort to NBC before and no action took place. However, a spokesperson for NBC denied this.
“We can say unequivocally, that, prior to Monday night, current NBC News management was never made aware of any complaints about Matt Lauer’s conduct.”
A day after the firing, Matt Lauer has released a statement in response to the accusations.
“Some of what is being said about me is untrue or mischaracterized, but there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed. I regret that my shame is now shared by the people I cherish dearly. There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions. To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry. As I am writing this I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC.”
Do you find this apology to be sincere or do you agree with Porsha?
