Fired Meteorologist Erick Adame Apologizes for Appearing on Adult Cam Site
meteorologist Erick Adame has issued a lengthy apology on social media after he was fired over his appearance on an adult webcam website.Citing a new lawsuit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, the New York Post reported that Adame was terminated from his position after an unidentified person took nude photos of the TV personality on the site and sent them to his boss.Per the report, Adame stated in his lawsuit that the photos were taken without his permission, with the person in question sending the images to his mother and NY1 "with intent of harassing, annoying, or alarming [Adame] and tortiously interfering with [Adame's] employment relationship."Emmy-nominated broadcaster Adame, who had been a meteorologist at NY1 since 2017, is seeking a court order to compel the website—identified as Unit 4 Media LTD.—to reveal the name of the person so that he can sue them.Taking to his Instagram account on Monday, Adame confirmed that he had been dismissed from his position, as he explained he was sharing details of the incident to "share my truth rather than let others control the narrative of my life.""My psychiatrist calls my actions, 'compulsive behavior,' others would call them reckless, stupid or brazen," he wrote in the caption. "I'm not in a position to argue with any of these descriptions.A post shared by instagram"Despite being a public figure and being on television in the biggest market in the country in front of millions of people five days a week for more than a decade and a half, I secretly appeared on an adult webcam website."On this site, I acted out my compulsive behaviors, while at home, by performing on camera for other men.
