Fox Nation’s Tyrus was accused of sexual harassment by his Un-PC co-host Britt McHenry, who filed a complaint against him with management, The Daily Beast reports. According to their sources, Tyrus sent unwanted text messages that were lewd in nature on multiple occasions.
The outlet last week reported he’d been tossed off one of the Fox News streaming platform’s most visible shows after a personal dispute with McHenry. The nature of that disagreement was unknown at the time.
“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 exception,” a Fox News spokesperson said in a statement.
“The process works because of the extensive systems and measures we have instituted. This situation was independently investigated and we consider the matter resolved. We respect the confidentiality of all involved.”
Fox News announced last month that Tyrus would be fronting a new show called NUFFSAID. He told The Hollywood Reporter’s Jeremy Barr that he moved on because he wanted his own show, but had no interest in answering if that move was precipitated by anything McHenry-related.
McHenry joined Fox News last year, finding success not sticking to sports after being part of ESPN’s widespread layoffs in 2017. Tyrus is a former professional wrestler and bodyguard for Snoop Dogg.
