Britt McHenry Reportedly Filed Sexual Harassment Claim Against Former FoxNation Co-Host

Britt McHenry Reportedly Filed Sexual Harassment Claim Against Former FoxNation Co-Host”

Murdoch was moved to his own show, NUFFSAID, once Fox News execs. learned of the allegations.

According to Maxwell Tani of The Daily Beast, former FOX Nation host Britt McHenry, who used to work at ESPN as a reporter, filed a sexual harassment complaint against her then Un-PC co-host Tyrus. These come from his co-host Britt McHenry, who complained to Fox News management about receiving lewd and unwanted text messages from the wrestler turned television host on multiple occasions.

The Daily Beast also cited two sources saying Tyrus was known for his off-color "politically incorrect" jokes and "he's got a wild sense of humor, if we're being generous", according to one female Fox employee.

However, outside splitting up the "Un-PC" hosting duo, it's unclear whether the network took any disciplinary action against Tyrus following McHenry's complaint. Tyrus and McHenry were reached out to but neither have provided a statement or comment on the matter.

The UN-PC anchor was sent home by his employers last week following a confrontation between himself and McHenry.

McHenry joined Fox News a year ago after she was part of ESPN's widespread layoffs in 2017. In May, the network announced he got his own show on the streaming platform, omitting any direct mention of his exit from the show with McHenry. Tyrus is a former professional wrestler and bodyguard for Snoop Dogg. Tyrus was questioned by The Hollywood Reporter's Jeremy Barr via Twitter about the incident to which Tyrus responded, "No comment and don't message me again". She's been trying to brand herself as a conservative voice.

Fox News would issue Fightful.com a statement on the matter on Wednesday afternoon, stating "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. We respect the confidentiality of all involved".
