Leslie Moonves, the embattled CEO of CBS who has been charged by numerous women with sexual misconduct, has resigned from his post, a CBS statement said Sunday.
According to The Western Journal, Moonves and CBS will “donate $20 million to one or more organizations that support the #MeToo movement and equality for women in the workplace. The donation, which will be made immediately, has been deducted from any severance benefits that may be due to Moonves following the Board’s ongoing independent investigation,” CBS said in the statement.
This after 6 women came forward with horrific accounts about Moonves allegedly had done to them. It’s just sick!
As Reported By USA Today:
“A law firm is currently investigating accusations that Moonves forced women to perform oral sex and hurt the careers of those who resisted. He has denied all the reports.
It’s unclear if the investigation, which will be critical in determining whether Moonves gets severance, will stay confidential. The former CEO and CBS agreed to keep the report under wraps, according to documents, unless the board determines it’s in the network’s best interest to make it public.
“I’m sick and sick of the story and sickened by everything that we keep hearing,” King said on-air Tuesday. “But the part you mentioned about transparency is very disturbing to me because I would think, how can we have this investigation and not know how it comes out?”
She continued: “In our own house, we must have transparency.”
