When the Peeping Tom video of Erin “Sexiest Sportscaster In History” Andrews leaked earlier this week, it took the Internet by storm. The video shows Erin hanging out nude in her hotel room for nearly five minutes — and variations on the words “Erin Andrews Nude Video” have dominated search engines the entire week. So it’s no surprise the veteran gossip rag New York Post could not resist running pictures from the video. Payback, however, can be a bitch. ESPN flexed its muscles yesterday by banning New York Post reporters from appearing on any of its programming.
“While we understand the Post’s decision to cover this as a news story, their running photos obtained in such a fashion went well beyond the boundaries of common decency in the interest of sensationalism,” said a senior VP for ESPN.
Additionally, Andrews is seeking criminal charges and will bring a civil lawsuit against the person who shot the video as well as anyone who publishes the material. See why Erin Andrews is known as “Erin Pageviews” below.
