Britt McHenry Sues Fox News & Former Co-Host Tyrus for Sexual Harassment

Britt McHenry has filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Fox News and her former co-host Tyrus.

The 33-year-old Fox Nation commentator has reportedly spoken out four different times about sexual harassment.

She claims that the network has “refused to look into some of her claims, shunned her, shut her out of company events and refused to allow her to appear as a guest on other FOX News shows,” TMZ reports. She says that this is all a result of her claiming that Tyrus sexually harassed her in 2018 through inappropriate text messages.

After she reported the incidents, Britt claims Tyrus was never punished and was even given his own show. She also says that Tyrus showed investigators photos and texts of her “cleavage and nearly bare breast,” though she says these were doctored and not really her.

“Fox News remains a sanctuary for sexual harassers, coddling and enabling the men who abuse female employees,” Britt McHenry said in the suit.

A Fox News rep told the outlet, “Ms. McHenry‘s lawsuit recycles the same allegations she filed with the New York State Division of Human Rights in October, to which we filed a response on Friday. As we have previously stated, Ms. McHenry‘s allegations have been fully investigated and we are confident our actions will be deemed entirely appropriate in litigation. We expect all of her claims to be dismissed.”

Fox Nation Host Tyrus Under Fire After Sending Inappropriate Text Messages to Colleague

Tyrus – a contributor and host on Fox News’ subscription streaming service, Fox Nation – is under fire after sending lewd and inappropriate text messages to a coworker.

Fellow Fox News contributor Britt McHenry filed a complaint back in June that her former UN-PC co-host was sending her inappropriate text messages, which were not released until just recently, according to Huffington Post.

Between November 2018 and January 2019, Tyrus sent texts to Britt like “Just pull your boobs out now why don’t you. Just grin and bare it” and “keep being negative and I’ll send you another d–k pic.”

According to the reports, Britt would respond “Hahaha” to Tyrus‘ messages or tried to change the subject.

In June, The Daily Beast reported that Tyrus was removed from UN-PC in April and was given his own show NuffSaid after Britt complained to the network, which includes a claim of sexual harassment.

At the time, Fox News released a statement reading, “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. 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 is now coming under fire for the way they treated the situation after multiple sources claim that Tyrus was not suspended while his conduct was investigated.

Fox’s statement reads, “As we have previously said, this matter was immediately and thoroughly investigated by an outside law firm that was charged with providing us with independent factual findings and recommendations for action based on all of the evidence. We have consistently done this in other employee matters of this nature. All protocols were followed and the recommendations we received were appropriate and promptly implemented. We respect the confidentiality of our employees and their involvement in any HR process and therefore will not comment on the results of the investigation.”
