It seems a local Albany radio host has been asleep during the entire #MeToo movement.
Radio host Chris Laursen, whose on-air name is Quinn of the Quinn and Cantara Morning Show, tweeted the request to Lexie Nahl, a reporter for ABC affiliated after seeing a clip of her standing outside in the cold on Jan. 10.
Laursen deleted the tweet on Thursday after Nahl's co-worker Ayla Ferrone re-tweeted him and criticized him for it.
"Are you serious? Do you not have anything better to do with your life than harass women? If you have to put a "creepiness" disclaimer on a tweet, here's a novel idea-MAYBE DON'T TWEET IT. You are disgusting and should be ashamed," Ferrone wrote.
Laursen later tweeted an apology to Ferrone, saying he was a fan of WTEN.
"I’m totally bummed that I hurt anyones feelings, so I’m sorry to you, Lexi and anyone else over there. Thanks for keeping me in check @AylaFerrone we all must be more sensitive to this #MeToo," Laursen wrote.
