American talk show host and author, Tavis Smiley, was caught on the wrong side of the law after investigations by Variety revealed he was engaged in sexual relationships with “multiple subordinates”.
Workers told investigators that Smiley was a verbally abusive and threatening boss who tied the success of his employees to their sexual relations with him. After the allegations, PBS announced it was suspending distribution of the late-night talk show.
