Former WWE and Impact Wrestling wrestler Tyrus (a/k/a George Murdoch) was reportedly removed from Fox Nation’s “Un-PC” following sexual harassment claims made by co-host Britt McHenry. The Daily Beast reports that Tyrus sent McHenry “unwanted and unsolicited text messages with lewd, sexual comments” on multiple occasions. Fox reportedly pulled Tyrus from the show and opted to give him his own show called “NUFFSAID”. Read more at TheDailyBeast.com.
Powell’s POV: The story adds that it’s unclear whether Tyrus was disciplined by Fox News management beyond being pulled from one show and given another. Murdoch wrestled as Tyrus during his run with TNA/Impact Wrestling, and also wrestled as Brodus Clay in WWE. He has yet to comment on the matter as of this update.
