The first 15 photos were of the hotel and its restaurants while in the 16th photo he was half-naked in the 17th he sends his full naked photo.
On asking Porter he continued to deny that he had not sent his absurd picture to the reporter, but before that, he had admitted that he had sent messages to the reporter. when he was told that the pictures and messages he had sent had been seen.
So he said, “the more explicit ones are not of me. Those are like, kinda like joke-stock images.”
The photos sent by Porter were verified when Mets fired him, On Tuesday, the Mets chief Steve Cohen fired Porter and tweeted on Twitter “In my initial press conference I spoke about the importance of integrity and I meant it,” Cohen tweeted. “There should be zero tolerance for this type of behavior.”
When ESPN received porter messages, they informed the baseball management about it But the reporter did not want the incident to be published in the media because it would damage his career.
Because the reporter is no longer in the game, he agreed to publish the incident on one condition, his name should not appear in it, as it would bring disrepute to his area.
“My number one motivation is I want to prevent this from happening to someone else,”. “Obviously, he’s in a much greater position of power.
I want to prevent that from happening again. The other thing is, I never really got the notion that he was truly sorry.” She told ESPN.
“I know in the U.S., there is a women’s empowerment movement. But in [my home country], it’s still far behind,” the woman said. “Women get dragged through the mud if your name is associated with any type of sexual scandal.
Women are the ones who get their fingers pointed at them. I don’t want to go through the victimization process again. I don’t want other people to blame me.”
“If I had a better understanding — not just of the language, but the culture — I definitely would’ve realized sooner what was going on,” the woman said.
