Only days after Fox News CEO Roger Ailes got fired over ever increasing harassment suits, ‘Fox & Friends’ tweeted a revealing photo of Heather Nauert as she was working at her desk.
Nauet’s colleague, Bill Hemmer, apparently snuck up behind her and put his hands on her chair as she was following the headlines on her computer as a prank. A picture was taken of the incident, which seemed to focus more on her cleavage than the prank itself.
‘Fox & Friends’ tweeted the picture, then quickly deleted it after a wave of negative comments.
The incident comes amid accusations of sexual harassment, bullying and intimidation filed by females who previously worked for the conservative news network, along with former ‘Fox & Friends’ host Gretchen Carlson.
Carlson accused the former CEO of firing her after she refused to have sex with him.
She also implicated her co-host, Steve Doocy, of sexual harassment, which other employees can testify to.
According to The New York Times, Carlson was just one of several women who claim they were pressured to perform sexual favors and endure harassment while at work.
The men were known to make boorish comments toward the female workers and pressured the junior employees into hooking up with senior employees. The women have been hesitant to make a report because they feared they would lose their job.
