Former MSNBC host Touré Neblett was accused of sexual harassment by a former make-up artist who says the liberal #MeToo champion “couldn’t stop asking me to do anal, how I looked naked, if I had sex over the weekend, what it would be like to f–k me.”

The allegation arose after the make-up artist saw Touré promoting his work on the documentary, “Surviving R. Kelly”:

Touré apologized, saying that’s just how everyone in the office talked:
Touré releases a statement basically saying that is how everyone talked in the office and he thought they were cool enough it wouldn't be exposed in the DMs. He was wrong https://t.co/s0s7vYjnkF

Will Touré now add himself to this list?
Sexual predators: Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, Bill O’Reilly, Roger Ailes, President Trump.

Charles Blow later tweeted that he needs to tell himself to “stop being astonished” at these stories:
Wow, the makeup artist accusing Toure of sexual harassment has used her entire Instagram story to discuss this issue. Worth a look. I’m shocked by this, having known Toure for a years. But, I keep telling myself: “Stop being astonished!” pic.twitter.com/b0lPGlInJd

And it’s already costing Touré as he’s losing guests for his radio show. From actor Terry Crews:

So, what comes out next?
@Toure is garbage for how he treated this woman. But i’ve heard many stories over the years. I wonder if the others will come forward?
