Before he was fired, Matt Lauer reportedly exposed himself to one female co-worker, bought another a sex toy, and engaged in other completely sexist and inapproriate behavior.
Now Lauer's lawyers may be asking for a $30 million payout for the disgraced Today Show host.
In the real world, bad actions should have consequences. And, if we are ever going to stop sexual harassment in the workplace, we must hold bad actors like Matt Lauer accountable.
Lauer has clearly violated the moral clause of his contract, and appears to have done so over the course of several years in several instances. NBCUniversal owes him nothing and they should publicly state that they will not give an abuser a payout. Paying him one cent more would be an insult to women everywhere.
Tell NBCUniversal that sexual predators shouldn't be paid — they should be held accountable. Please add your name now to make your voice heard.
