NBC News fired “Today” co-anchor Matt Lauer for inappropriate sexual behavior hours before Variety published the results of a two-month investigation tying the morning show star to various levels of alleged sexual harassment.
Once Variety’s bombshell hit the internet, the salacious details included one detail that caught fire on social media: According to Variety, Lauer’s private office at storied 30 Rockefeller Plaza contained a secret button that could essentially turn that office into a secret sex lair.
“His office was in a secluded space, and he had a button under his desk that allowed him to lock his door from the inside without getting up. This afforded him the assurance of privacy,” Variety’s Ramin Setoodeh wrote.
An NBC insider confirmed the existence of the button to Fox News.
