Last week, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly was fired from the network after a series of sexual harassment allegations against him came to light. Now, it appears that Sean Hannity has been hit with sexual harassment claims that may end up coasting him his show as well…
Daily Mail reported that Hannity was just forced to deny that he sexually harassed a former guest on his show after Debbie Schlussel claimed he invited her back to his hotel room in Detroit, Michigan following a book signing. She alleged that she was not invited back on his show after turning down his advances. Schlussel also said that Hannity got angry when she briefly became a “redhead” and asked her creepy questions about her pants size.
“This kind of stuff is all over the place at Fox News and anything that has to do with Sean Hannity,” Schlussel said in an interview.
Hannity immediately released a statement to defend himself.
“LET ME BE CLEAR THE COMMENTS ABOUT ME ON A RADIO SHOW THIS WEEK by this individual ARE 100% false and a complete fabrication,” wrote Hannity. “This individual is a serial harasser who has been lying about me for well over a decade. The individual has a history of making provably false statements against me in an effort to slander, smear and besmirch my reputation.”
“The individual has not just slandered me over the years but many people who this individual disagrees with. This individual desperately seeks attention by any means necessary, including making unfounded personal attacks and using indefensible and outrageous political rhetoric. My patience with this individual is over,” he continued. “I have retained a team of some of the finest and toughest lawyers in the country who are now in the process of laying out the legal course of action we will be taking against this individual.”
“In this fiercely divided & vindictive political climate I will no longer allow slander and lies about me to go unchallenged, as I see a coordinated effort afoot to now silence those with conservative views,” Hannity concluded. “I will fight every single lie about me by all legal means available to me as an American.”
