ESPN conducted a sexual harassment probe and two of its analysts won’t be coming back

Powered by Topple

ESPN fired former NFL stars Eric Davis and Donovan McNabb, who were named in a bombshell sexual harassment lawsuit filed by former wardrobe stylist Jami Cantor.

Cantor claimed Davis, a former NFL cornerback and host on ESPN 710, inappropriately touched her and made sexually charged comments at her.

She also alleged McNabb, a former quarterback and ESPN Radio analyst, sent lewd text messages to her.

Cantor alleged Davis once “grabbed Plaintiff’s behind, slid his hand between Plaintiff’s legs, and touched Plaintiff’s privates, while saying, ‘I can’t handle your a** it is so luscious.'”

Davis is also accused of making the following lewd comments to Cantor (warning: graphic):

  • “I want you so bad.”
  • “My c**k is so hard because of you right now.”
  • “You look like you would be an animal in the sheets.”
  • “[I’d] would love to be able to spank you so hard it would leave marks and can tell you like it rough and would love it.”

McNabb, a former quarterback with the Philadelphia Eagles, allegedly told Cantor she “looked like the kind of girl that s*uirted when getting f***ed.” In 2015, McNabb was arrested for drunk driving.

These latest allegations spotlight the seedy “locker room culture” at ESPN, which abounds with rampant sexism and sexual misconduct, according to a scathing Boston Globe article.

In her explosive lawsuit, Jami Cantor claims she was wrongfully fired in October 2016 after working at ESPN for 10 years.

The liberal sports network claimed it had fired Cantor for stealing, but she says the network is guilty of age and sex discrimination, sexual harassment, hostile work environment, and wrongful termination.

ESPN has come under fire in recent months after several of its TV personalities (like Jemele Hill) made bombastic anti-Trump remarks. Sports fans blasted the network for injecting leftist politics into its coverage, saying they watch sports to get away from divisive politics.
