Yesterday, we reported that Fox News host Sean Hannity had been accused of sexual harassment by former Fox News contributor Debbie Schlussel. However, it didn’t take long for her to backtrack on these claims in a big way.
Independent Journal Review reported that Hannity immediately spoke out to refute Schlussel’s accusations and threaten her with legal action. Without missing a beat, Schlussel immediately admitted that Hannity never sexually harassed her. Instead, she said he was simply “creepy” and “not someone I liked.”
Schlussel initially claimed that Hannity invited her back to his hotel room after a book signing in Detroit, Michigan in the early 2000s. When she refused to go, she claimed Hannity began yelling at her and told her she would never appear on his show again.

However, she was singing a very different tune on Monday after Hannity announced plans to sue her.
“I would never accuse him of that. Sexual harassment has a special meaning under the law, and I would never accuse him of that,” Schlussel said. “He tried to get me to go back to the hotel after the show after he and his executive producer Bill Shine treated me horribly.”
“I never thought I was sexually harassed by Sean Hannity, I thought he was weird and creepy not someone I liked,” she added.
