Over the last week, Chris Cuomo’s world got thrown into a blender.
As a result of the investigation into his brother, it became clear that Chris Cuomo had lied about using his media contacts to help his brother push back against the sexual harassment allegations.
Late Saturday night, reports broke that CNN had parted ways with Cuomo, who had his own sexual harassment allegation levied against him.
Sexual harassment allegations have followed the Cuomo brothers around for years.
As you know, that is why Andrew Cuomo was forced to resign.
Chris Cuomo has also had allegations against him on this front, with one more recently added to the pile.
Amid the Andrew Cuomo controversy, Chris Cuomo was recently hit with yet another sexual misconduct allegation by a “former junior colleague at another network.”
The former colleague decided to come forward after she heard the comments made by Chris about his brother’s case.
The piling on of controversies seemed a bit much for even CNN to take, announcing that it was parting ways with Cuomo.
CNN stated, “Based on the report we received regarding Chris’s conduct with his brother’s defense, we had cause to terminate.
“When new allegations came to us this week, we took them seriously, and saw no reason to delay taking immediate action.”
Cuomo has already pushed back, with Steven Goldberg, a spokesman for Cuomo, stating, “These apparently anonymous allegations are not true.
“If the goal in making these false and unvetted accusations was to see Mr. Cuomo punished by CNN, that may explain his unwarranted termination.”
Shelley Ross, a producer who had also filed a complaint against Cuomo, stated, “It is always disturbing to watch someone’s fall from grace.
“Many people lost very important jobs in the wake of the sexual harassment scandals surrounding Gov. Cuomo.”
Throughout the Trump administration, Cuomo always came off arrogant, pompous, and self-righteous.
He and Don Lemon would regularly slap each other on the back over their barbs against Trump, but now Trump has the last laugh.
