NFL Network is suspending three prominent analysts including former Steeler Ike Taylor in the wake of sexual harassment accusations.
The network announced on Monday that ex-NFL stars Ike Taylor, Marshall Faulk, and Heath Evans have been suspended after a suit was reportedly filed against them in Los Angeles Superior Court by a former female colleague
The allegations come from a former wardrobe stylist for NFL Network, Jami Cantor, who accuses Taylor of allegedly sending Cantor “sexually inappropriate” pictures of himself and a video of him in the shower.
She also accusing Faulk of asking “deeply personal and invasive questions” about Cantor’s sex life—which may be a gray area.
But the other part—where she also accuses him of “fondl[ing] her breasts and grop[ing] her behind” —well, that is the definition of “personal” and “foul.”
Furthermore, Eric Weinberger, who currently serves as president of Bill Simmons’ media group is accused of sending Cantor “several nude pictures of himself and sexually explicit texts” and “press[ing] his crotch against Cantor’s shoulder and ask[ing] her to touch it."
Cantor originally filed the suit in October alleging sexual harassment, age discrimination, retaliation, wrongful termination and defamation.
Wow—seems the NFL Network is not very current when it comes to the workplace.
