Left-wing NBC anchor Matt Lauer of the Today Show was given the boot after he was accused of sexual misconduct. He is not the first person as of late to be sent packing, and I doubt he will be the last.
Now there is a report by TMZ that Lauer not only exposed himself to a co-wroker, but gifted another one a sex toy. However, it appears that those instances are simply a scratch on the surface of the accusations against him.
One woman says Lauer once delivered a sex toy to a female co-worker, and attached an explicit note … detailing how he’d use it on her. Several accusers claim his office was ground zero for much of the sexual misconduct. For instance, he allegedly called a female employee into his office … dropped [trousers], and flaunted his penis.
During a 2014 aired skit, Lauer removed his pants after spilling something on them. He then proceeded to say “Drink it in, ladies” as he flaunted his boxers to his female co-hosts.
While that was simply a humorous skit, I doubt there was more to it. However, gifting sex toys as gifts to female co-workers is quite odd. What normal person does something like that?
Also, according to the report on Variety, Lauer had a secret button under his desk in his office that allowed him to lock the door without having to get up and lock it manually. Can you say creepy?
One former producer claims several of Matt’s office flings were consensual, but added they were still problematic because of the power he had as the face of the network. The producer added, “He knew people wouldn’t ever complain.”
