It turns out that, despite having said all was resolved after an investigation of Fox Nation host Britt McHenry claims of sexual misconduct against colleague Tyrus last June, Fox News acknowledged that it conducted a second investigation into her claims.
Tyrus is the one on the left, in case you were wondering.
“All protocols were followed; the recommendations we received were appropriate and promptly implemented. Since then, we voluntarily engaged a second outside investigator to look at any additional evidence presented, and to review the first investigator’s findings/recommendations in light of any evidence. Again, all protocols were followed and the second set of recommendations fully affirmed the first set,” the network said in a statement.
McHenry, a former ESPN personality, has alleged that Tyrus, a retired wrestler, sent her sexually suggestive text messages and behaved inappropriately toward her in person.
Tyrus (real name, George Murdoch – no relation) continues to host his own show called “’Nuff Said” on Fox Nation.
The two were originally paired as co-hosts of the show “UN-PC,” which McHenry still hosts.
The litigation brought by McHenry against Tyrus and several Fox execs is ongoing.
