After Mark Halperin was suspended from NBC following accusations of sexual harassment, The Daily Caller was reminded of a time he got awfully creepy on air.
In 2014, during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Halperin appeared to simulate masturbation on a plastic spoon while sporting a wild grin on his face. He didn’t stop until he was chided by co-host Joe Scarborough. (RELATED: Mark Halperin Gets Creepy With Plastic Spoon On ‘Morning Joe’)
“You got to stop doing that, OK? We’re on the air,” Scarborough said.
Halperin has been accused of pressing his genitals against women and groping them without their consent.
“During this period, I did pursue relationships with women that I worked with, including some junior to me,” Halperin said in a statement Wednesday night. “I now understand from these accounts that my behavior was inappropriate and caused others pain. For that, I am deeply sorry and I apologize.”
