Fox News Host FIRED! The Lawsuit Allegations Will Leave You Appalled!
The popular host of The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson alleges that she was let go on June 23 after 11 years with the network for refusing to sleep with Ailes.
Carlson writes in her court filing about a conversation she had with Ailes last September in which he allegedly said to her: ‘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.’
The conversation allegedly came when Carlson went to speak with Ailes about what she believed were discriminatory practices at the network.
Carlson posted on Facebook Wednesday morning: ‘As you may have heard, I am no longer with Fox News. I value your support and friendship, especially now, so please stay in touch with me. I value your support and friendship, especially now, so please stay in touch with me.
Carlson claims in her complaint that Ailes called her a ‘man hater’ and accused her of wanting to ‘show up the boys’ when she complained about what she alleges was diminishing treatment and ‘pervasive sexual harassment’ by her Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy.
That is why she was fired from the marquee show in 2013 and placed as the host of her own afternoon show, claims Carlson in her complaint.
Carlson, 50, alleges that her compensation was decreased at this time as well by the network.
The spot was open at the time because Ailes had made the decision to move Megyn Kelly from that afternoon slot to the 9pm hour, following the network’s highest rated program, The O’Reilly Factor.
