Matt Lauer Responds to Rape Charge from Former NBC Staffer: “We engaged in a variety of sexual acts…she certainly did not cry”


In an open letter (uploaded by the NY Post) Matt Lauer defends himself against rape charges made by former NBC staffer Brooke Nevils. Really, read this. I am throwing up. It’s insane that he wrote this and thinks it’s a defense. What kind of father does this and then admits to it, graphically? The mind reels. “She didn’t cry.” What? “We engaged in a variety of sexual acts.” And then he describes them. On Yom Kippur, of all days. Talk about a day of Atonement. I don’t think this letter is going to work, frankly.
