Accusations of Sexual Harassment!
The E! News correspondent is in hot water these days and fighting the accusations of sexual harassment. The alleged incident took place back in 2011 and surfaced recently on 26th October 2017 and was first broke by The Wrap.
Back in 2011, the former intern at E! News turned to Ken Baker to some career advice. But before she would analyze the situation the conversation turned personal, and he hugged her. She even accused that he kissed her without the consent.
After the incident, Ken reportedly sent explicit text messages escalating over the time. In 2015, she said that he offered her a sex toy with his name written on it.
A former intern is not the only who accused the entertainment correspondent of sexual harassment, an employee of E! News with undisclosed name accused Ken of inviting her to sit on his lap. Further, he also complimented on her tight skirt followed by inappropriate touching.
After the news broke, Ken Baker said that:
“I am very disturbed by these anonymous allegations, which make my heart ache. I take them very seriously.”
NBC then released the statement that they will take all complaints of misconduct seriously, and thoroughly investigate all allegations of harassment. E! News also clarified that Ken would not appear on air until the investigation ends.
