Former WWE & TNA Star Facing Sexual Harassment Allegations
George Murdoch, known as Tyrus & Brodus Clay in wrestling, has been named in sexual harassment allegations at Fox News. According to The Daily Beast (h/t PWInsider) Murdoch was removed from the UN-PC program. This is reportedly due to his harassment of co-host Britt McHenry. Fox News released the following statement:
“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.
