As previously reported, RAW play-by-play announcer Jonathan Coachman has been mentioned in a sexual harassment lawsuit brought against ESPN.
Former ESPN anchor and legal analyst Adrienne Lawrence has filed a lawsuit against the company for sexual harassment in the workplace. Several personalities were mentioned in the suit including Jonathan Coachman.
Coachman is now firing back against these allegations via Twitter claiming he’s not a sexual predator and he’s the victim of “vicious lies.”
“In 21 years of being a PROFESSIONAL I have never been more offended in my life,” Coachman says.
“In 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.”
“I am also offended that someone can dangerously throw peoples’ names into something for the clear attempt at getting headlines.”
“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.”
