Former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson accused the network's chairman and CEO, Roger Ailes, of sexual harassment in a lawsuit filed Wednesday.
In the suit, Carlson claims Ailes "sabotaged her career because she refused his sexual advances." She also complained about "severe and pervasive sexual harassment" during her time at the news network.
She went on to accuse Ailes of "ostracizing, marginalizing and shunning" her before firing her last month. Ailes allegedly made it clear that Carlson's treatment would improve "if she had a sexual relationship with him."
