Matt Lauer Issues Statement On Sexual Misconduct Allegations, Multiple Women Come Forward
Variety conducted a two-month investigation and spoke with several women who accused of Lauer of engaging in shocking behavior. A source told the publication that Lauer once gave a colleague a sex toy as a present and included an explicit note about how he wanted to use it on her.
On another day, he allegedly summoned a different female employee to his office, and then dropped his pants, showing her his penis. He then allegedly reprimanded her for not wanting to have sex with him.
As previously reported the complaint that allegedly got him fired was from another current NBC employee who accused Lauer of inappropriate behavior at the 2014 Sochi Olympics and continued for several months.
That’s not all, there also allegations that Lauerer had a “specially designed office” that allowed him to lock its doors from his desk assuring him privacy.
“This afforded him the assurance of privacy. It allowed him to welcome female employees and initiate inappropriate contact while knowing nobody could walk in on him, according to two women who were sexually harassed by Lauer.”
That’s not creepy at all.
Lauer’s finally released a statement on the allegations and he’s expressing remorse to the “people he hurt” while adding that some of the allegations are “untrue or mischaracterized.”
“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,” Lauer said in a statement.
“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,” Lauer said. “I regret that my shame is now shared by the people I cherish dearly…repairing the damage will take a lot of time and soul searching and I’m committed to beginning that effort. It is now my full time job.”
Blah, blah, blah—bye Matt!
