Alex Jones Accused Of Racism, Anti-Semitism And Sexual Harassment”

Two people formerly employed by far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones have filed federal complaints alleging the embattled InfoWars publisher discriminated against his staff and subjected them to a workplace rife with sexist, racist and anti-Semitic harassment.

The videos found to be in violation are titled "What Is To Blame For The Florida High School Shooting?" and "The Truth About Crisis Actors In The Florida Shooting".

She was sacked in April 2017 due to excessive "write-ups", she says.

Beckford said she was subjected to racially insensitive taunts during her time with company, and that she was passed over for promotions because of her race.

Another former employee, Ashley Beckford, who is African-American, claimed that a Jones groped her rear end and frequently made sexual comments about her and himself that, she felt, were meant to "groom me for sexual exploitation".

"I also was subjected to harassment and racial slurs by Respondent's management and some peer colleagues, as well as subjected to sexual harassment and a hostile, sexually offensive work environment", she wrote in her complaint against Free Speech Systems.

Alex Jones has been accused of groping and making unwanted sexual advances at an African-American, whom he called his "black wife".

Jones, meanwhile, jumped all over Hogg's seeming willingness to come on his show to discuss Jones pushing the crisis actor conspiracy theory.

"I felt embarrassed and nervous, but I knew that he had specifically touched my behind at that moment as a sly come-on that other people may not notice", Beckford said of the incident.

"But when I clicked on this picture to see the full resolution image, a gay porn website popped up; it was a clickbait picture", he added.

Beckford said she was also intimidated by the display of weapons in the InfoWars office in Austin, Texas, which, according to her, contributed toward creating a hostile work environment.

Hogg also asked if Jones had been sued by for spreading lies about the victims of another shooting. That's all I can say.

Rob Jacobson, a former video editor hired by Free Speech Systems in 2004, filed his own complaint February 9 alleging Mr. Jones of running an office culture he described as "racially and sexually discriminatory".

Jacobson says he was eventually fired over a "misunderstanding" over someone else taking over a project he'd been working on.
