Co-host files sexual harassment complaint against Tyrus at Fox News channel
TheDailyBeast.com is reporting that former WWE and Impact Wrestling star Tyrus was removed from his UN-PC show on Fox News Channel after his co-host Britt McHenry filed a sexual harassment complaint against him with Fox News management.
McHenry claims that the man formerly known as Brodus Clay in WWE sent her unwanted and unsolicited text messages with lewd, sexual comments. Two sources have come forward to The Daily Beast saying that Tyrus, real name George Murdoch, had a reputation for regularly making off-color or “politically incorrect” remarks or jokes.
Tyrus was given his own show, called Nuff Said, on the Fox News website instead after he was removed from co-hosting UN-PC. He still regularly appears on Fox News as a contributor.
Earlier today, Fox News released a statement saying, “While we are not at liberty to discuss the details of any employee matter, we follow strict protocols when matters such as these are brought to our attention, and we make no exceptions. The process works because of the extensive systems and measures we have instituted. This situation was independently investigated and we consider the matter resolved. We respect the confidentiality of all involved.”
