Kenny Lofton accused of sending pictures of penis to co-worker
Kenny Lofton was sued and accused of exposing an employee to photographs of his genitalia.
The lawsuit was filed by Brandyn Toney, an individual employee who was allegedly hired and worked with the longtime outfielder at Investment and NFT companies "Centerblock Asset Management LLC" and "Proxime Corporation," which are also being sued.
Lofton founded and co-owns both businesses. Lofton is accused of sending photos of his penis to various female subordinates, including one employee hired to monitor his Instagram account, according to the report.
Lofton is also accused of not paying Toney a penny of his promised $85,000 salary, citing payroll issues that arose shortly after he was hired. In the suit, he seeks monetary damages.
After taking his grievances to the company's lawyer to inform them of Lofton's inappropriate actions, Toney admitted that he was fired two hours later.
"Lofton and his executive team thought they could fire our client for alleged blatant sexual misconduct and even thought they could get away with not paying him for his work. This speaks to the arrogance and limitation of day-to-day gaming Centerblock and Proxime."
