Matt Lauer's Accuser Brooke Nevils Slams His Open Letter Denying Rape

The woman accusing Matt Lauer of raping her at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, Brooke Nevils, has released a statement in response to his open letter denying the allegations against him.

“There’s the Matt Lauer that millions of Americans watched on TV every morning for two decades, and there is the Matt Lauer who this morning attempted to bully a former colleague into silence,” Brooke told NBC News in a statement. “His open letter was a case study in victim blaming… I am not afraid of him now, regardless of his threats, bullying, and the shaming and predatory tactics I knew he would (and now has) tried to use against me.”

Lauer released a lengthy statement explaining his alleged side of the story, including why he had never defended himself against allegations until now. You can read Brooke‘s entire account of what allegedly happened here.
