A former ESPN executive has filed a defamation lawsuit against a former colleague who he says spread a false story about him masturbating on a plane.
Keith Clinkscales says Joan Lynch spread a false story about him masturbating on a plane under an iPad while sitting next to ESPN reporter, Erin Andrews.
The New York Daily News reports:
The source — referred to by the web site as “Connie” — claimed Andrews caught Clinkscales masturbating under an iPad while sitting next to him on a commercial flight in February. In the suit, Clinkscales charges Lynch is the Deadspin source and that she was driven by “racial animus” to smear Clinkscales.
“It’s shocking behavior and I look forward to her explaining herself in a courtroom,” Clinkscales attorney, Judd Burstein, told the Daily News.
