New York City Weatherman Fired After Webcam Nudes Leak
Erick Adame, NY1’s morning meteorologist, lost his job after naked screenshots were anonymously sent to his mom and bosses.
He's a victim of revenge porn, he got fired for being a victim, it's bonkers
Who cares what anyone does in the bedroom? Leave the guy alone and give him his job back.
You must be a big time piece of garbage to go ruin someone's career. Hope he sues the crap out of spectrum. Spectrum cable is shit btw
He'll get a big settlement in court. This is not a good dismissal.
If I was his lawyer I’d try to make it seem like he was fired for being gay. The issue that they had was it was a man getting naked for other men.

Hypocrisy is more glaring in some cases more than others, and I think this is one of them. In short, this is a really strange case to be happening in a sex-positive city. This ranks right up there with the ridiculous fuss made by the NY Post over that Only Fans EMT.
Mr. Adame was on his own time. He wasn't doing anything illegal. There was nothing about his activity that distracts from his job in any way, shape or form. Plenty of men do the same thing, whether they identify as gay OR straight. And more men do this than anybody wants to admit tbh. Even if he's a publically known man, he's still a man at the end of the day.
So these are the million dollar questions. What purpose does his firing accomplish? Who in the viewing public was asking for this? Or is the internal culture at NY1 really that puritanical? Because it's only a puritanical impulse that can justify this firing.
Most importantly, what precedent does this set for other media figures who enjoy their sexuality on their own time? Does this mean that if you're on TV, you're obligated to act like a nun for fear that your totally normal activity might become public knowledge?
Erick Adame should be given his job back pronto.
aw wtf... i love this guy. always upbeat and happy, always in a nice suit lol, and actually try to teach people about various climate terminology and facts; ie global warming etc...
i just thought he was just on vacation...
i would want him back on ny1, but damn it's gonna be awkward af..
He didn't break the law: what's the issue here? Why is he being fired?
