Since then, multiple sources have confirmed to The Daily Beast that the dispute centered around McHenry's contention that Tyrus had, on multiple occasions, sent her unwanted and unsolicited text messages with lewd, sexual comments.
The outlet last week reported he'd been tossed off one of the Fox News streaming platform's most visible shows after a personal dispute with McHenry.
Fox Nation host George "Tyrus" Murdoch, better know amongst wrestling fans as ex-WWE star Brodus Clay, has been kicked off his show after following a sexual harassment complaint tabled by co-host Britt McHenry. Political commentator Eric Bolling resigned from the station the following year when he was accused of sending co-workers rude SMS messages.
We've reached out to the parties involved for comment on this situation but have yet to receive a response.
Fox News announced last month that Tyrus would be fronting a new show called NUFFSAID. Two sources who have worked at Fox told The Daily Beast that Tyrus had a reputation for making off-color or "politically incorrect" remarks or jokes. One current female Fox employee reportedly said, "He's got a wild sense of humor, if we're being generous".
The Daily Beast also reported on behind-the-scenes issues with Tyrus at Fox, made from his appearances on various shows.
The complaint against Tyrus did not come as a surprise to everyone at the network.
Neither Tyrus nor Britt McHenry have publicly commented on the allegations as of this writing. He told The Hollywood Reporter's Jeremy Barr that he moved on because he wanted his own show, but had no interest in answering if that move was precipitated by anything McHenry-related. It was said by others with knowledge of Tyrus's professional environment that he had a long history of acting outwardly angry towards crew members. He left IMPACT Wrestling last spring and according to CAGEMATCH, his last match took place in August at a House of Hardcore show.
