NBC Fires Matt Lauer Over Allegations Of Inappropriate Sexual Behavior In The Workplace

Even his co-stars were caught off guard

People around the country woke up to the headline ‘NBC Fires Matt Lauer‘, and while many people were surprised by this news, so many others weren’t.

Recently it seems a day can’t go by where we’re not hearing of a celebrity male being accused of inappropriate sexual behavior, sexual harassment and even sexual assault. The flood gates opened a few weeks ago when a New York Times expose interviewed multiple women who accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct. Since that article was released dozens more women have come forward to tell their own story of alleged abuse at the hands of Harvey Weinstein.

Since that article was published more and more women are gaining the courage to speak out about the sexual harassment and assault they’ve faced at the hands of powerful men who intimidated them in to silence. In addition to Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Piven, Louis CK, Ed Westwick, Brett Ratner – I mean the list literally goes on and on, have all been accused of sexual misconduct and, in some cases, rape.

The latest celebrity to stand accused of sexual misconduct is former TODAY Show host Matt Lauer.

Even Lauer’s colleagues, who were forced to report the news that NBC fires Matt Lauer, were shocked by the revelation that the news anchor had been accused of inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.
