A television personality who has sounded off about Harvey Weinstein on the air has been accused of having his own history of sexual harassment, according to a report by TheWrap.
“Since the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke, E! News correspondent Ken Baker has appeared on the air expressing disgust at the shamed mogul’s behavior. But two women who have worked with Baker told TheWrap he has his own history of sexual harassment,” TheWrap reports.
“One former E! News employee said that in 2012, he called her into his dimly lit office and, after a few minutes, invited her to sit on his lap,” the story reports. “Another woman, a former E! News intern, said he kissed her without her consent in 2011, propositioned her for sex repeatedly over several years, and, in 2015, texted her that he wanted to give her ‘a Tiffany dildo with “Ken Baker” engraved on the shaft.’”
Baker provided a statement to TheWrap in which he said: “I am very disturbed by these anonymous allegations, which make my heart ache. I take them very seriously. I care deeply for people’s feelings and sincerely live in a way that treats people with dignity and respect.”
