Tavis Smiley says he’s “shocked” by sexual misconduct allegations, and plans to “fight back”

  • In a video posted last night on Twitter, the PBS host reacted to his show’s suspension, saying: “It is clear that this has gone too far. And I for one intend to fight back. PBS overreacted and they launched a sloppy investigation. It’s time for a real conversation in this country about where the lines are, about how men and women can engage each other in the workplace. And I look forward to actively participating in that conversation.” Smiley added: “Let me also assure you that I have never groped, inappropriately exposed myself or coerced any colleague in the workplace ever in my 30-year career.”
