Former WWE Superstar Brodus Clay (aka Tyrus) a Fox News contributor and host on the network’s subscription streaming service, Fox Nation – is under fire after sending lewd and inappropriate text messages to his co-host Britt McHenry.
McHenry and Tyrus (real name George Murdoch) started a show called Un-PC. Tyrus was later quietly replaced as a host with no formal explanation given. Meanwhile, he was given his own Fox Nation show, called NUFFSAID.
Now the Daily Beast is reporting that Tyrus left Un-PC after Britt McHenry filed a complaint with the company back in June that her former co-host was sending her inappropriate text messages, which were not released until just recently, according to Huffington Post.
One of the messages from Tyrus said, “Just pull your boobs out now why don’t you. Just grin and bare it” and “keep being negative and I’ll send you another dick pic.”
The Huffington Post story also states that Tyrus sent inappropriate text messages from November 2018 to January 2019 like this one: “I love the fact your always working if we ever had sex I feel like after an orgazzum you say speaking of feeling good did see the story on the puppy rescue we should do a segment on it hand me my phone.”
According to the reports, Britt would respond “Hahaha” to Tyrus‘ messages or tried to change the subject.
Fox News declined to comment on the matter, but issued the following statement last month when the story first broke and before the contents of the text messages got out: “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. We respect the confidentiality of all involved.”
Fox is now coming under fire for the way they treated the situation after multiple sources claim that Tyrus was not suspended while his conduct was investigated.
McHenry continues to host the “UN-PC” show on Fox Nation while Tyrus continues his show “NuffSaid”. He also continues to be a regular guest on Fox News’ “The Greg Gutfeld Show” and he appears on Dana Perino’s “The Daily Briefing” program.
