Chris Cuomo is alleged to have engaged in sexual harassment

Chris Cuomo appears to share another trait with Andrew Cuomo-allegation of sexual harassment. A woman came out and stated that she was sexually harassed by Chris Cuomo. He hugged her, then lowered his hands to grab one of her butt cheeks. She did not consent to that type of attention.

From Fox News:

“At the time, I was the executive producer of an ABC entertainment special, but I was Mr. Cuomo’s executive producer at ‘Primetime Live’ just before that,” Ross wrote. “I was at the party with my husband, who sat behind me on an ottoman sipping his Diet Coke as I spoke with work friends. When Mr. Cuomo entered the Upper West Side bar, he walked toward me and greeted me with a strong bear hug while lowering one hand to firmly grab and squeeze the cheek of my buttock.”

Ross said Cuomo told her, “I can do this now that you’re no longer my boss”, and did it “with a kind of cocky arrogance.” Ross said she told him he couldn’t, pushed him off her and revealed her husband was right behind her, and they quickly left the party, which was celebrating an ABC colleague’s departure.

While Cuomo denied wrongdoing at ABC News during the conversation with Cohen, he admitted it in an email published by the Times in Ross’ essay.

Ross printed a copy of an email from Cuomo the same evening where he said he was “ashamed” of his behavior and even noted actor Christian Slater had been arrested for similar conduct.

“[T]hough my hearty greeting was a function of being glad to see you … christian slater got arrested for a (kind of) similar act, (though borne of an alleged negative intent, unlike my own)…and as a husband I can empathize with not liking to see my wife patted as such,” he wrote.

Cuomo, who was 34 at the time of the alleged incident, asked Ross to pass along an apology to her “very good and noble husband,” and also “I apologize to you as well, for even putting you in such a position.” He added he would remember his lesson the next time he was happy to see her.

    Squeeze my wife’s or Lady Friends butt like that without her permission and you gonna look worse than tickle monster preacher man looked.

    In my circle of Friends and Compatriots we do a lot of hugging, in greeting or departure. But nobody gets all grabby feely.

    Got thrown out of Germany once due to something like this. My wife always used to nag me saying “Most people get thrown out of bars… you get thrown out of COUNTRIES.” Almost totally scurrilous accusation: it was only one country.

    Now would be a good time to start ripping the name Cuomo off everything in NY.

  12. Old tanker says:

    Seems being an asshole runs in that family. I hope she filed a police report and prosecutes him. On the other hand her husband must really be a nebbish if he was there and said nothing, did nothing.
