According to the Daily Mail, the daughter of Larry Flynt is facing a sexual harassment claim brought on by a former male employee. The daughter of the Hustler porn tycoon, Theresa Flynt, works in Hustler’s retail arm. Flynt is accused of groping and making a series of advances towards her former district manager Steven Prescott. Among the accusations is that she groped the employee and leered at him in the office.
Prescott said that Flynt sent him a late-night text message saying that she wanted him. Additionally, the plaintiff said he made several complaints but no one in the porn company took any action and claimed that the entire Flynt family believed they were above the law. Prescott said that Flynt often touched him inappropriately and in a sexual manner, or what could be considered quid pro quo sexual harassment.
According to the suit, Theresa even texted the plaintiff a message that read “OMG… I’m totally sexually harassing you right now.” Prescott claims that the human resources department at the porn company found the results of their investigation inconclusive. Prescott objected to sexual advances but was then subjected to an increasingly hostile work environment. The plaintiff is seeking unspecified damages.
