Earlier this week, NFL Network suspended multiple personalities including Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor and Eric Davis after a sexual harassment lawsuit was filed by a former employee.
Now, a women who was interviewed for a job says she was also treated inappropriately during her interview with the NFL Network.
Lindsay McCormick, a broadcaster who has worked for multiple media outlets says that when she was interviewing for a job at the NFL Network, a male executive asked her if she would get “knocked up immediately like the rest of them.”
She wrote this on her Instagram:
“I’ve been quiet about this for too long, in my last interview with NFL Network a few years ago, the head of hiring talent said to me, ‘If we hire you, do you plan on getting knocked up immediately like the rest of them?’ ‘Them’ as in bad ass working women who deserve to have a family life as well? ‘Them’ as the women who work their tails off to be taken seriously in a man’s world? Or ‘them’ who bring you a new audience and a tremendous amount of viewership? Because while I don’t plan on ‘getting knocked up,’ I do plan on being like the rest of those brilliant women that our future daughters will one day look up to and see you can have it all. Kudos to NFL Network for eventually removing this man from his position and for the actions they’ve taken this week.”
McCormick did not name the person who asked her that question.
