“On this site, I acted out my compulsive behaviors at home by performing on camera for other men,” said Eric Adame
MANHATTAN, NEW YORK CITY: An Emmy-nominated weatherman has been fired from work after screenshots of him showing off sexually explicit content on an adult webcam were leaked and sent to his boss and mother. Meteorologist Erick Adame has been exposed by a random user who bothered to let the world know about his side hustle. Adame took to his social media to explain his sudden absence from the airwaves.
The weatherman, previously with Spectrum News NY1, took to his Instagram to explain the incident and apologize. He wrote: “Although I was a public figure and on television five days a week for more than a decade and a half in front of millions of people in the country’s largest market, I was secretly appearing on an adult webcam website On location, I acted out my compulsive behavior at home by performing on camera for other men. It was 100% consensual by both of us. I wasn’t paid for it, and it was preposterous for me to think I could keep this private.”

“Nevertheless, my employer found out about it and I was suspended and then fired. It was preposterous for me to think I could keep this private. Nevertheless, my employer found out about it and I was suspended and then fired,” says the weatherman. Adame has an impressive career spanning 15 years, with two Emmy nominations and five years as a meteorologist at NY1 before the scandal. Adame continued on his Instagram post, “Let me be clear: I’m not apologizing for being gay or sex positive – these are gifts and I’m not ashamed of them.”
Adame seems to be after the people who exposed his Guilty Pleasures. Recent court documents show he has requested that the site provide him with the personal information of the user who shared that sensitive information so he can sue them. Adames’ plea in his Manhattan Supreme Court on Monday, September 19 alleges that a man took nude photos of him on the video chat website identified as Unit 4 Media LTD without his permission. The court documents said the man then sent the photos to Adame’s mother and boss with the intent to “harass, harass or alarm.” [Adame] and disturb without permission [Adame’s] employment.”
Usernames for these people include Sonal Prehonn, Tommysize29, Funtimes99, and Landonboy227. The possibility of Adame obtaining her personal information is murky as the site has stated that it does not collect users’ personal information and Adame could not help. Unit 4 Media attorney Lawrence Walters told the New York Post, “Our client’s policy is to comply with lawfully issued subpoenas and provide relevant user data when required by law. Collecting and distributing user content without consent is a violation of our client’s Terms of Service and Forum Rules, which may result in a suspension or ban of the offending accounts.”
