Viking clap forthcoming.
Matt Lauer was a daily presence in the homes of millions of Americans for two decades. This week, the longtime “Today” show co-host was fired by NBC after a complaint about “inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace” was investigated by the network. Now, those who watched and revered Lauer are in shock, or possibly even a state of grief.
Lauer is one of the latest high-profile people to lose his job over sexual misconduct at work. Minnesota Public Radio also fired former “Prairie Home Companion” host Garrison Keillor this week over allegations of improper behavior.
It’s a moment of national reckoning on harassment, assault and abuse of power. How are you processing the growing list of fallen icons? And even though it can feel like we know celebrities intimately, how should you respond when someone you know in real life is accused of sexual misconduct?
