Gretchen Carlson Just Sued Roger Ailes For Sexual Harassment
If you heard a strange noise earlier, that was just me masturbating onto the American flag while screaming “Black lives matter!” because I didn’t know how else to react to the news that Gretchen Carlson is suing the shit out of Roger Ailes for sexual harassment. It just seemed like the thing to do at the time. Jezebel reports:
In the complaint, Carlson alleges that [Fox News CEO] Ailes terminated her employment on June 23, 2016 after she refused to have a sexual relationship with him. According to the lawsuit, when Carlson met with Ailes to discuss the “discriminatory treatment to which she was being subjected,” Ailes told the anchor, “I think you and I should have had a sexual relationship a long time ago and then you’d be good and better and I’d be good and better.” Carlson declined the offer and, according to the complaint, was fired nine months later.
And that was just the icing on this shit-cake because it turns out Steve Doocy was also allegedly sexually harassing Gretchen and Roger Ailes had zero fucks to give about it. Unless those fucks would be going into her “posterior.”
Ailes dismissed her complaints about Doocy and, according to the complaint, called her a “man-hater,” and instructed her to “get along with the boys.” Carlson alleges that Ailes then began retaliating against her by reducing her appearances across the network. In 2013, Carlson was fired from Fox & Friends and reassigned to anchor The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson. She says that her pay was substantially reduced while her workload was increased.
In addition, Carlson alleges that Ailes made numerous comments about her body and her clothing, including asking her to “turn around so he could view her posterior.”
And this is why I’ll never understand women who support a political party that views them as inferior and nothing more than sexual objects.
In related news, when reached for comment, a metal-bikini-clad Megyn Kelly tried to warn a bounty hunter that he was standing over the Rancor pit, but not before Donald Trump could yank her back by the chain. He would cherish this gift from Roger. Cherish it forever…
