(AOL.COM EDITORS) Longtime FOX News host Gretchen Carlson filed a lawsuit on Wednesday alleging that she was fired from the network after rebuffing the sexual advances of CEO Roger Ailes.
The former “FOX & Friends” anchor claims she was fired on June 23 after more than a decade with the network as retaliation for rejecting Ailes.
Carlson has opened up before about sexual harassment in the workplace. In her book ‘Getting Real,’ she claimed a top TV executive once “threw himself on top of me and stuck his tongue down my throat.”
