Following NBC’s decision to terminate “Today” co-host Matt Lauer on Wednesday over sexual misconduct allegations, it appears that Lauer has deleted himself from the internet.
Lauer is accused of sexually assaulting an unnamed female NBC staffer in his office in 2001, The New York Times reported.
As a result of his immediate dismissal from NBC, it appears as though Lauer has deleted his Twitter account and his Facebook page.
In a separate report, Page Six noted that Lauer is accused of sexting female staffers and interns:
Matt Lauer has also been accused of sexting female staffers at NBC, allegedly sending lewd messages and revealing pictures to women including a young intern.
Sources tell Page Six that the reason he was fired so quickly by NBC News is that the messages, saved by an NBC employee whom he approached while they were in Sochi, Russia, for the 2014 Winter Olympics, “showed incontrovertible proof of inappropriate sexual behavior on his part.”
It is believed the first woman to come forward and complain about Lauer is a junior production worker who was at the 2014 Sochi Olympics as an intern, where she was first approached by Lauer.
