Former wrestler Tyrus — who is now a Fox News contributor and was host on Fox Nation with former ESPN employee Britt McHenry — allegedly sent lewd texts to McHenry, according to Yahoo Sports. The duo are no longer hosts together.
One of the lewd messages not previously publicized was that he allegedly sent was, “Just pull your boobs out now why don’t you. Just grin and bare it.” He also allegedly said “Keep being negative and I’ll send you another d*ck pic.”
Back in June, it was reported by The Daily Beast that Tyrus — whose real name is George Murdoch and went by Brodus Clay in the WWE — was removed from his show duties with McHenry. She went to the network regarding him, which led to the separation.
The complaint also alleged sexual harassment against the former professional wrestler.
He also allegedly sent a sent between November 2018 and January 2019 that said, “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 [you] see the story on the puppy rescue [?]. We should do a segment on it hand me my phone.”
She allegedly said “Hahahaha.” Then she allegedly shifted the conversation to another topic.
McHenry allegedly shared the texts with friends months ago, according to the report. She even asked for advice in how to handle it.
“As we have previously said, this matter was immediately and thoroughly investigated by an outside law firm that was charged with providing us with independent factual findings and recommendations for actions based on all of the evidence.” Fox News said in a statement. “We have consistently done this in other employee matters of this nature. All protocols were followed and the recommendations we received were appropriate and promptly implemented. We respect the confidentiality of our employees and their involvement in any HR process and therefore will not comment on the results of the investigation.”
Tyrus — who previously competed in the WWE and Impact Wrestling — joined Fox News in 2016 as a contributor. He was previously a regular on “The Greg Gutfeld Show.” He also appears on “The Daily Briefing” with Dana Perino.
In October 2018, Fox News announced McHenry and Tyrus would host “UN-PC.” The first episode aired in November 2018, before splitting in April 2019.
