Journalist Touré Accused Of Workplace Sexual Harassment

A make-up artist accused Touré of sexual harassment in 2017, shortly before he was subsequently fired by Time Inc.
YESHA CALLAHAN Jan, 10, 2019
Update: January 10, 2019 1:44 p.m. PST:

Toure´has issued a response through his rep:

“On the show, our team, including myself, engaged in edgy, crass banter, that at the time I did not think was offensive for our tight-knit group. I am sorry for my language and for making her feel uncomfortable in any way. As a lead on the show, I should have refrained from this behavior. I have learned and grown from this experience.”



Earlier:

Since the premiere of dream hampton’s Lifetime documentary Surviving R. Kelly, many celebrities have come out to denounce the R&B singer. The documentary was a long-awaited vehicle for young women who’ve allegedly been abused by Kelly to tell their stories. And it also included commentary from those who’ve covered the allegations against the singer over the last decade.

One of the commentators included in the documentary was journalist Touré Neblett, who most commonly goes by his first name. Touré, a music journalist, is quite familiar with the allegations Kelly has faced throughout his career. In 2008, Touré interviewed R. Kelly for BET, and as seen in the documentary, he didn’t get the answers he was looking for when it came to the musician’s “like” of teenage, particularly underage, girls

Earlier this week, Touré appeared on the Mouse Jones podcast to once again discuss Kelly.

In the post, a comment that was left on the the show’s now-deleted Instagram post advertising the episode Touré appeared on, caught the eye of social media:



In the post, a make-up artist, who goes by the name ‘Dani,’ alleged that Touré sexually harassed her while she worked with him on a show, saying, “He couldn’t stop asking me to do anal, how I looked naked, if I had sex over the weekend, what it would be like to f–k me.”

Dani then states that she would make sure to have crew members in the room with her while she got him ready for the People/Entertainment Weekly show. Eventually, Dani quit but allegedly reported Touré to human resources and according to her account, he was immediately fired.

In an exclusive interview with ESSENCE, Dani shared additional details about her experience with Touré.

“I worked with him most of 2017, I left in October, before he got fired,” she claimed. “When I reported it to Time Inc. they terminated him that day.”

Dani claimed to have been sent an apology via Instagram from Touré, which she shared with ESSENCE. As to what made Dani report Touré to his employer after she quit? She said it was because he was doing media appearances talking about Harvey Weinstein and his allegations of sexual misconduct.

“He went on Hot97 to talk about Harvey Weinstein (after he apologized). I accepted his apology and was ok to move on but, you can’t be a sexual predator and go around shaming other predators,” she said.

Dani said she shared her story on Instagram because she saw Touré on Surviving R. Kelly and the media appearances he was making.

“When I saw him going around as R. Kelly’s docuseries spokesman to different radio stations, the lies had to stop. I’ve worked with Mouse Jones before and wanted him to know the truth,” she said.

Below are screenshots of the apology allegedly made by Touré in November 2017:





When it comes to living in the #MeToo era, stories have been surfacing about various men and their toxic behavior in and out of the workplace. From Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, Louis C.K., and the countless other men in entertainment, sexual harassment is a much talked about topic more than any point in our history. But in the Black community, there still seems to be a cloud of disbelief when a victim comes forward, as we saw during some of the commentary surrounding Surviving R. Kelly.

It takes courage for women and men to admit that they’ve either been sexually assaulted or harassed, and it’s not something that should easily be brushed under the rug. Perpetrators of toxic and abusive behavior should be held accountable for their actions, and understand how their actions have impacted others. Apologies are a start, but what is also needed is a dedicated focus on behavior change and healing to ensure there is no part of our society where this is ever accepted as normal.

ESSENCE has reached out to Time Inc., which issued a statement saying they do not discuss personnel matters, but stated Touré is no longer employed at the company. A rep for Touré has yet to comment.

people who have behaved badly around sexual harrassment etc are EXACTLY the people who should be going hardest against sexual predators. It should be on some "i used to be fucked up like this and i wanna make sure no one else has to suffer"...so i disagree with her on that

so Toure royally fucked up by not being that guy that's like, hey i never raped anyone but there was a time when i made a woman uncomfortable with my behaviour,etc...

If he'd been open and sincere about it, I doubt he'd be getting dragged right now...because as far as I'm concerned, the matter itself is settled. He did the thing and faced a consequence for it...he was fired...AND he apologize (albeit, fully in his ego)

So all of this is his own fault for not getting ahead of it and owning up BEFORE being called out.

the one person I've seen over the years who's done a really successful "mea culpa" is Kevin Powell. he's openly talked about hitting women when he was younger, how much he regrets it, what he's learned from it...and has been an outspoken advocate for ending domestic violence...therefore, you don't see the woman/women he's harmed feeling any need to drag him publicly about it.

Toure should have learned from that example.

Casting a wide net against dudes and saying he can proudly say he has never disrespected a woman or something like that.

I had to catch him on the phone like, "dude remember that one story you told me?"

He was like

I have been thinking about the right way to be a public advocate without being a hypocrite AND not invite people to start digging (which I think happens when you open with "I've done things that I regret and am not proud of")

IDK.

Anyway, if anyone is still reading I have to admit I kinda remember 15 stories from back in the day? SOmething about talking about porn alot? that sound familiar? Correct me if I am wrong.

I'm seeing Terry Crews's name thrown around as "one of the good ones" because of his own #metoo story. Because of that, he's sort of "allowed" to be a public, vocal male advocate without inviting any digging up of his past or suspicion of his motives.

The other option is to be an advocate, but not be too vocal or too forceful. Staying in your lane, so to speak. Speak when called on, say what's important to say and no more.

Actually, there's another option - only speak loudly if you're sure you have nothing suspect in your past at all. Nothing in real life, no old social media stuff, nothing borderline, nothing you'd have to address at all - nothing.

its amazing how hard it is for men to just be like,

IVE BEEN SOCIALIZED TO BEHAVE IN TOXIC WAYS TOWARD WOMEN AND I'M ACTIVELY EXAMINING MY OWN PAST BEHAVIOURS WHILE WANTING TO BE A VOICE FOR THAT CHANGE IN ALL OF US IN SOCIETY, AND I'M SURE I'VE DONE SHIT THAT HURT WOMEN AND INVITE ANYONE I'VE HURT TO TALK ABOUT IT SO I CAN LEARN FROM IT AND DO BETTER.

Like that would end 99.9% of the public blowback ya'll are afraid of
