Blue Jays Broadcaster Gregg Zaun Fired After Allegations of Inappropriate Conduct From Several Women
It is safe to say that if you’ve done anything inappropriate towards a female in the past and you know it, you may as well step out in front of the bullet, because it’s only a matter of time before those skeletons in your closet come out.
Gregg Zaun is just the latest to have it happen to him after he was fired from his position at Rogers Sportsnet on Thursday, following multiple allegations of inappropriate workplace conduct.
The Toronto Blue Jays television broadcaster has been accused by several women who have came forward with allegations of “inappropriate behavior and comments.”
Rogers Media president Rick Brace released the following statement:
“This type of behaviour completely contradicts our standards and our core values,” Brace said, according to Sportsnet. “We believe in a professional workplace where all employees feel comfortable and respected. We are grateful to our employees who spoke with us and we will take every measure to protect their privacy.”
The 46-year-old played 16 major-league seasons as a catcher for nine different teams during his career. He has been the television analyst on the Blue Jays’ pre- and postgame shows since his retirement in 2011.
It cannot possibly be this hard to keep your hands and inappropriate comments to yourself in the workplace. Everyday, we get reminded of how tough it is for some folks.
