Although TV viewers may still be in David Letterman’s corner after news of his extortion sex scandal broke, one organization is lashing out against the late night talk show host.
The National Organization for Women spoke out against Letterman in a statement on Tuesday, accusing him of creating a hostile, uncomfortable work environment for his employees.
“The latest Letterman controversy sheds new light on the widespread objectification of women in the workplace,” the group said.
“As ‘the boss,’ he is responsible for setting the tone for his entire workplace – and he did that with sex. In any work environment, this places all employees – including employees who happen to be women – in an awkward, confusing and demoralizing situation.” (CNN)
