Jonathan Coachman Responds to Sexual Harassment Accusations

Jonathan Coachman Responds to Sexual Harassment Accusations

As reported earlier, WWE announcer Jonathan Coachman is among several personalities named in a sexual harassment and discrimination lawsuit filed against ESPN by former anchor Adrienne Lawrence.

Coachman has responded to the accusations on Twitter, writing:

I will address this only once because I am seething today. In 21 years of being a PROFESSIONAL I have never been more offended in my life. I my 9 years I can count on one hand the amount of times I interacted with anyone other than a co-anchor. To allow someone to spread vicious Lies and flat out fabrications is not ok and it’s time someone stood up for themselves. @jemelehill addressed her lie last night. I am not a part of this lawsuit because I have never done anything wrong. My reputation speaks for itself and anyone that has ever worked with me Will back that up. I am also offended that someone can dangerously throw peoples names into something for the clear attempt at getting headlines. This the only time I will address this because I am not a part of this lawsuit. My heart goes out to anyone falsely accused of Anything. Trust me it doesn’t feel good. But most of you have been incredible and supportive. Onward and upward.

WWE has issued a statement on the matter, simply stating:

“We take these matters very seriously and are investigating.”

ESPN claims to have investigated Lawrence’s allegations and found them “entirely without merit”. The statement also adds:

“The company will vigorously defend its position and we are confident we will prevail in court”.
