More women have stepped forward to accuse Matt Lauer of sexual harassment, after NBC News said Wednesday it has fired the longtime “Today Show” host. An investigation by the magazine Variety found Lauer once gave a sex toy to a colleague along with a note about how he wanted to use it on her. Variety also reports Lauer exposed his genitals to a colleague and reprimanded her when she rejected his advances. Meanwhile, The New York Times reports one former NBC employee was summoned by Lauer to his office in 2001. Lauer allegedly locked the door and sexually assaulted her.
