Former ESPN host Adrienne Lawrence claims staff ‘keep sex scoreboards’ and ‘openly watch porn’

Former ESPN host Adrienne Lawrence has filed a sexual harassment lawsuit claiming the network is rife with misogyny.

Lawrence, who worked as an anchor and a legal analyst, claims the company did not address complaints for incidents dating back to 2015.

She specifically names ‘SportsCenter’ host John Bucigross, alleging that he called her ‘dollface’, ‘#dreamgirl’, and ‘#longlegs’ in text messages sent in 2016 along with unsolicited shirtless photos, reported the Boston Globe in December.

‘ESPN is, and always has been, a company rife with misogyny,’ the first line of the complaint reads, according to the Connecticut Law Tribune.

The suit alleges that male executives and talent at ESPN ‘keep scoreboards naming female colleagues they are targeting for sex’.

It also alleges that men openly watch porn on their computers and have made comments in Lawrence’s presence like wondering what Rihanna must ‘taste like’.
