The MLB goes through convulsed hours after the scandal of sexual abuse by Jared porter, General Manager of the New York Mets. The important sports leader who was denounced for harassing a journalist ended up leaving his position at the head of the New York franchise. From the club they warned that there will be “zero tolerance.”
The incident occurred in 2016, when Porter worked at Chicago Cubs. The hitherto general manager of the Mets harassed with a large number of messages a foreign journalist who worked as a correspondent covering the MLB. While the journalist tried to work, Porter sent her lewd photos and sent her invitations to hotels.
The fact that occurred almost five years ago came to light in an interview conducted by ESPN, where they protected the identity of the victim. Meanwhile, Porter came out to apologize, although he later tried to excuse himself by saying that the photos he sent were just “a stock of jokes.”
What did the Mets say?
“I have spoken directly with Jared Porter about the events that took place in 2016, which were first reported to us tonight. Jared has acknowledged his serious misjudgment, has taken responsibility for his conduct, expressed remorse and previously apologized for his actions, “said Steve Cohen, investor in the New York club.
Meanwhile, the Mets board of directors decided to fire Porter for the facts of public knowledge. “Jared’s actions, as reflected in the events revealed last night, do not meet the Mets’ standard for professionalism and personal conduct.”
