NBC News announced Wednesday it fired longtime Today Show anchor Matt Lauer following reports of inappropriate sexual behavior toward multiple women
Lauer is perhaps the most familiar face brought down by allegations of misconduct in the workplace.
Just hours after the bombshell announcement broke, Variety released disturbing new details from women who’ve worked with Lauer. One woman said he once gave her a sex toy as a gift and another woman said he called her into his office and dropped his pants.
Wednesday afternoon, TMZ uncovered video of Lauer, taken more than a decade ago, on the Today Show set. In the video, Lauer whispered, “Pretty sweater. Keep bending over like that. It’s a nice view,” to his then co-host, Meredith Vieira, during a commercial break while cameras were rolling.
