Ike Taylor Among Those Named In Harassment Lawsuit, Suspended By NFL Network

Typically when we get the opportunity to write about a former member of the black and gold, particularly a former recent member, I would like to think that it tends to be a good thing. Unfortunately, that is not the case today.

Longtime Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor, who has spent the past few years working as an analyst for NFL Network, and whose work I have referenced a handful of times during that span, is part of a lawsuit filed by a former employee for the network, who spent a decade there as a wardrobe stylist prior to her being fired last year.

The plaintiff, Jami Cantor, named Taylor among about six or so individuals, five of them being former NFL players, three of those being current employees at the network, accusing them of sexual harassment. The other players named were Heath Evans, Marshall Faulk, Warren Sapp, and Donovon McNabb.

Specifically regarding Taylor, Cantor alleges that the former cornerback “sent a video that showed him masturbating”; the accusations of others were of a similar or even more direct nature. Eric Weinberger, president of the Bill Simmons Media Group, was already suspended over the allegations.

The plaintiff’s lawyer alleges, further, that “the supervisors [of the NFL Network employees] knew about it, the supervisors observed it”, suggesting that the network, at least at some level of corporate priority, would have been aware that such behavior was going on, yet turned a blind eye to it.

The players in question remaining with the network—Taylor, Evans, and Faulk—have been suspended from their duties as well as they have opened up an investigation into exploring the veracity of Cantor’s claims.

These accusations surface in a time during the cultural climate in which sexual harassment is at the forefront of the public consciousness. The ‘Me Too’ movement, of sexual harassment victims sharing their stories, was even named Time magazine’s Person of the Year.

Many powerful individuals have been accused of sexual harassment, some of whom have acknowledged the truth of the accusations, while others have denied them. All, however, have in some form or fashion suffered the consequences of the allegations.

I would like to make a request that we attempt to restrain ourselves in the comments section to this article. I understand that this broaches on some current hot-button issues in an already tense social climate, but we don’t need to dump all of our societal waste here.

Needless to say, however, I would imagine that many of us will be interested to see how this case, and the investigation, play out for Taylor, who is a beloved member of the Steelers fraternity, remembered fondly for his play, as well as his demeanor, and his charity.

I certainly hope that the allegations—all of them—are untrue, but if they are, the individuals found to have done wrong should be held accountable for their actions.

    Irrefutable evidence or the lack there of will be the determining factor.

  • This whole sexual harassment stuff is getting out of hand. If it is true shame on them. But could it be false as a former employee is seeking revenge? We already know Sapp solicited to prostitution. Maybe there is some validity to this claim but who really knows? Time will tell.

  • pittsburghjoe

    This type of conduct is unacceptable, but why all of a sudden is their a tidal wave of allegations? What has suddenly changed?

  • Phil Brenneman II

    She claims to have text and videos as proof so it isn’t sounding good for the accused.

  • OhioBob

    I have trouble believing the accusation against “Stone Hands” Ike. I doubt he could keep a good grip on anything.

  • StillerzHaterzAmuseMe

    That many NFLN employees are sexually harassing one person?

  • Nicholas Arnhold

    The public’s reaction to this terrible behavior has changed. Previously people would be shuttled around or told that it’s just the way things are. Now there are actually consequences for the perpetrators, so it emboldens others to tell their experiences.

  • Well, don’t they all claim that in the beginning? In due time we will see.

  • falconsaftey43

    victim shaming is a big part of it. both from the victim themselves just feeling shame internally, but also from outside societal forces shaming them and downplaying the severity of the acts. These types of things can often be very difficult to prove so they end up being he said she said and the defense often focuses on attacking the character of the accuser, so it can be very difficult for victims to come forward. Recently, the public has been more supportive towards the victims and less dismissive. These things tend to happen in waves, one person coming forward gives another the courage to do so.

  • ThatGuy

    It’s all bad don’t get me wrong but the allegations are the popular thing to do now. Good, bad or indifferent everyone wants to feel like they’re part of something bigger than them.
    Aside from that, if these are true the guys should be fired and reprimanded by the law immediately.

  • Conserv_58

    You aren’t alone in asking that question. I think the Harvey Weistein case opened the flood gates as more and more alleged victims are coming forward with their stories.

  • Anthony Palmerston

    TBH I don’t see the issue of asking women for sex. Like seriously, what’s the big deal? You can’t handle it? I don’t agree with the touching, showing yourself, sending pics or videos, asking over and over after being told no, or doing it at work. But to simply just be like “Ay, You wanna f*ck?” shouldn’t be an issue.

  • Delboka

    She needs to share that video asap 🍆🍼

  • treeher

    But if it’s video from the waist down, we will need further, ah, confirmation.

  • Vic

    Sounds like this woman baited these guys into her trap. She probably led them on and played the game knowing she would use the videos and text messages against them down the road. It was probably a mutual relationship, but she’s only presenting one side to make it appear they were the aggressors

  • T R

    Dan Rooney is rolling in his grave. he loved Ike Taylor.

  • T R

    you can’t bait no one into sexual harassment or sending masturbation videos to a coworker. you just can’t let it happen.

  • Josh

    yeah but that’s some insanely specific imagination she has if this is just made up

  • T R

    My famous motto. “Don’t mess with a honey where your making your money”

  • falconsaftey43

    please stop, you have nothing to base this on besides your speculation. let the legal system handle it instead of trying to adjudicate it in the comments section of sports blog based on zero evidence.

  • If you have been following all the Hollywood allegations, it’s almost in line with all that. Louis CK did almost the same exact thing, except he did it in person with “permission” while thee guys allegedly sent it via text.

  • Ryan Alderman

    If he did it he will and should be punished, simple as that.

  • ThePointe

    A video of Taylor doing the deed is pretty disgusting.

  • Quan Hurst

    Come on man 😂😂😂😂😂

  • John Noh

    Too bad. I’ve enjoyed Ike’s take on things. But the accused deeds are horrible.

  • 1) we elected a president in spite of numerous claims/boasts/allegations of sexual misconduct
    2) Womens marches in response to the election improved solidarity
    3) Weinstein issue started the me too movement
    4) me too became specific

  • in the workplace that’s an issue since the stylist is way down the totem pole from the on-screen talent

  • DirtDawg1964

    Yes. It’s an issue. A significant issue. Women aren’t here to be the objects of your desire. It’s gross, tacky, and inappropriate even when it’s not your co-worker. It’s well beyond the grounds of professionalism, manners, good taste, human decency, and the law when it is.

    Seriously. Grow up.

  • DirtDawg1964

    And now you know why there is a movement. People like you.

    Look in the mirror. What you see there is troubled. Grow up.

  • k33ger

    maybe the problem is his hands were too tired by kickoff…

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Honestly from what is written it seems like a disgruntled worker. If that many people were harrassing you like that but you wait till after you have been fired, it tells me you might of liked the attention till your assignment ended then it was no longer getting attention but harrassment. I do not want to sound inconsiderate about harrassment of any kind but I want to hear more before I can just say bad Ike!

  • falconsaftey43

    Shannon, I appreciate your input and I believe you’re coming at this from a genuine point of view. What you say very well may be true. But here’s the thing. It’s assumed perspective like you present (sounds like a disgruntled worker, did it for the attention, waited till after to say something = lying) that has caused sexual misconduct to be the an insanely under reported crime. Victims (until very recently) did not feel they could come forward because this is generally the reaction they were met with, and it’s usually something that’s very difficult to prove because it’s usually he said she said. I’m not saying your scenario can’t or isn’t true, just that we have to be very thoughtful about throwing things like this out there. Both sides will get their chance through the legal system. I’d just urge everyone to refrain from trying to pass judgement on either party involved and from proposing theories as it can be very damaging to all involved.

  • Tevin

    Pretty sad hearing his name brought up. Kinda irresponsible too, but I have the feeling she didn’t mind what Ike/others allegedly did. It says she was let go in 2016 (stealing wardrobe) and she also has a lawsuit against the network before reporting this complaint. I don’t condone for anyone doing these such actions as alleged, but it really sounds like damage control. Meaning I got fired for something I didn’t do, so if I’m losing my job others will lose there jobs.

  • Matt Rippin

    I’ll readily admit to a bias here, because I don’t like to see Ike’s name tied to this stuff (I like most of the other guys who were accused, also), but I’m skeptical of this one. This whole sexual harassment/sexual predation bloodletting is inevitably going to end with some accuser jumping the shark and making wild, unsubstantiated claims, and this one may be it.
    The claims are a bit too burlesque, “like the elaboration of a bad liar,” as Hannibal Lecter would say. Everyone’s doing unimaginably inappropriate things, everyone’s in on it, and–conveniently–the former employer knew enough to be legally liable. It reminds me a lot more of some high-profile frauds–Ben’s first “rape” case and the UVA Fraternity hoax come to mind–than of the more credible accusations made against Harvey Weinstein, etc.

  • falconsaftey43

    What you say very well may be true. But her accusations may also be true. Please, everyone, stop from trying to adjudicate this on the internet. We do not have the information necessary to do so. And reactions like these are exactly why sex crimes are so vastly under reported. I know you’re not trying to be a part of the problem, but you are. If it’s a false accusation, then shame on her and hopefully she’ll suffer the legal consequences and others will be cleared. It it’s true, then shame on them and hopefully they’ll suffer the legal consequences. But please, just wait for it to play out. These sort of comments serve no good, they only make things worse.

  • Josh

    saying you have a video of ike in the shower doing something very specific means you have a video. you don’t fabricate claims to evidence that doesn’t exist – not a way to build a case.

  • Matt Rippin

    I’m not part of the problem and these comments don’t make things worse. I’m allowed to have critical reaction to a news story. This is what public debate looks like. The rules aren’t different for sexual harassment or any other emotionally challenging story.
    And your “just wait for it to play out” comment is copout. That’s not what you’re doing. Scanning the various comments, it seems clear that you’re hanging out in the Comments section for the sole purpose of chastising people who express doubt of the woman’s story. You’ve taken a side yourself. I’m sure that you’ve convinced yourself that your side is inherently more ethical, even if it’s wrong, because you’re supporting a victim. But that’s not how this works.

  • falconsaftey43

    I’m not convinced either way. I don’t have nearly enough information to make an informed conclusion on what happened. Never once did I imply or indicate that any of the accused were guilty. I plainly pointed out that neither party should be judged. We don’t have access to the evidence. I don’t know who the victim is. It could be the accuser or just as easily the accused.

  • falconsaftey43

    We don’t know if the accusations are true yet or not. Shouldn’t just fire someone because they’ve been accused. Have to vet to situation.

    Brother Ike does have that devilish twinkle in his eyes like he’s eat more chicken than any man has ever seen.

  • LifeUhhFindsAWay

    Yeah, because we’ve never elected a president who committed sexual misconduct …

  • LifeUhhFindsAWay

    Agreed. If true they should obviously be punished. But even if false, their public images are still now ruined. Doubt any jobs will be restored.

    Ike is still a EFF UP even after football !!! SMFH

    Heath Evans is a jerk – good riddance.

  • Steve

    This started way before Harvey. Bill Cosby, Tiger Woods, to name a few.

  • Steve

    Usually when something like this happens, the floodgate of allegations come forth.

  • Steve

    Clinton was the worse and women flocked to him.

  • Steve

    No, Mr Rooney respected Ike like a son. Too many people use the word “love” out of text.

  • Junaid Mahmud

    Nah Trumps worse. Trump is the Cleveland Browns of presidents

  • there’s no doubt of that.

    we never made it to step 2 then. Things were obviously different 24 years ago but trump is not only accused of similar actions but he’s also a republican candidate poor on “women’s issues” of abortion, family leave etc. He’s openly demeaned women (Megyn Kelly, HRC) thoughout the campaign in a dismissive way.

  • Steve

    Nah – No one could be worse than the Clowns.

  • LifeUhhFindsAWay

    I’m definitely not going to defend Trump’s character. But to state that being pro-life is poor on “women’s issues” is language used only on one side of the isle. The other side might say it actually protects both men’s and women’s “issues”, because it allows them to be born and have life. It’s also quite a leap to mention that and then trying to tie it somehow into the harassment allegations.

  • Mark

    Ike is done for about 1yr or 2.

  • gdeuce

    apparently he sent a video of himself, so how could the accusation not be true?

  • If you search for “pew research poll dec 4 Roe v. Wade” and follow the survey related article you may see that 72% of women do not favor overturn or Roe V Wade.

  • Darth Blount 47

    My only comment is that I’m so saddened to see us having entered a time in society, where all it takes is an accusation, in order to achieve outrage, scorn, damning, and punishment. That sort of slope is so dangerous, so slippery, and so fraught with perilous animosity, that due process and real justice, are immediately displaced with mob mentality, hysterics, and bandwagoning of the illest repute.

    If you are a person who hears an allegation, and your first instinct is to attack the defendant and believe the accuser, then you’d make a terrific prosecutor and a lousy defense attorney. Which in essence means, through your head you hear the beautiful tones of: “Welcome my son… welcome… to… THE MACHINE.”

  • Darth Blount 47

    Allegedly.

  • Darth Blount 47

    In some ways, that happened with Duke Lacrosse.

  • Vic

    I never said there are innocent. All I’m saying is the messages might be out of context, you gotta hear both sides of the story. How do we know that woman wasn’t involved in a relationship with these guys and they were both sexting? If they are guilty, then so be it, I can care less what the outcome is

  • Darth Blount 47

    The issue with that Falcon, is that often there seems to be little recourse left for the accused if they are indeed innocent, and little fear of justice striking back at the accuser should they turn out to be lying or exaggerating.

    What I mean is, punishments in the business sense and of public opinion, have already began to come down on the accused, and steps have been taken to harm their livelihood WITHOUT due process. So it’s fair to comment that unlike what you are advocating for, the balance has already been tipped towards one side or the other from a practical sense, regardless whether one side is correct and the other is not.

    And THAT is the danger of the times in which we live. Had none of these people been suspended or harmed in any way, assuming they deny the allegations of course, then we’d all be able to let the process “play out.” But that is no longer how it works anymore. Which is terrifying.

  • Matt Rippin

    Fair point–but then the video is either available or its not. As I understand the story, the accuser has been gone from the network for awhile, so she may end up having to explain why she didn’t preserve the evidence.

  • LifeUhhFindsAWay

    Just checked. It says 67% of men also said the same thing. Is that your premise for saying its a women’s “issue”? It’s also not really surprising given how long it has been in effect as well as 8 years with a Democrat president.

  • Olde Gold

    And a majority of Hitler’s Germany were in favor of gassing jews, what’s your point exactly?

  • Charles Mullins

    Horrible is a strong word. You/We need context. Foolish is a better word.

  • Matt Rippin

    What’s more, if we jump from ‘victim-shaming,’ as it’s been called, to witch-hunting the accused, it’ll never get any better. We’ll just swing from one unjust extreme to the other based on how the socio-political winds are blowing at a given moment.
    You have to be able to differentiate between credible and incredible accusations. Serious matters lead to serious debates, a serious debates can often hurt and offend people. That’s no reason to stop having them.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Very true, sometimes I wonder if we’ve entered a time warp and it’s 1692 all over again. If so, I’m going to have to be very careful about how wild and crazed I get this week during the game or someone might assume I’m overcome and possessed.

  • LifeUhhFindsAWay

    That makes sense

  • Ed Smith

    I too am saddened that the concept of the assumption of innocence until found guilty has been replaced with immediate “conviction” and condemnation in the media/court of public opinion. It appears all it takes is an allegation to get people suspended, fired, etc. IF the accuser is correct, then the scales of Justice will tip in that person’s favor, AFTER an investigation has occurred and the evidence is brought before the appropriate authority (whether corporate or criminal). I have been involved in these types of cases as a manager of others in a corporate setting. These are SERIOUS charges and must be dealt with in a serious, deliberate investigative process. We never suspended or took any disciplinary action against an accused BEFORE an investigation occurred. Only when there was some evidence of wrongdoing would suspension/termination/charges be levied against the accused. The current trend of “shoot first then ask questions later” truly is a slippery slope that we all should fear – one never knows what the next Shoot First item will be and whether we would be considered in it. In our American system, both accuser and accused have the right to Due Process. Short-circuiting that to make ourselves feel better that “something is being done” is simply un-American.

  • Junaid Mahmud

    He is a clown

  • NinjaMountie

    Sigh….these things shouldn’t be tried in the court of public opinion.
    Did this happen as is claimed? Maybe. Until the facts are out no one should have their lives ruined. I heard one politician say that it’s worth it to judge 10 men guilty even if two of them are innocent and falsely accused. This truly saddened me because this seems to be what the majority of people believe and it is tragically unfair. This is not what this country stands for.

Or, most likely he has and previously wrapped himself in a shroud of sanctimony and stuck up for the murders, rapists, etc who have gone free because of the principle that “better 10 guilty go free than 1 innocent man suffer”. But today’s climate requires the true social justice warrior to go along with the loud crowd and burn the accused at the stake.

    True but I have to say what the hell kind of workplace is that? I mean ONE employee got sexually harassed by 5 or 6 other people? And this isnt just some crass verbal abuse, it’s full on videos and physical contact.

  • Will

    I get your point.

    In a less crass way…Just what are the rules of office romance?

    I’m not taking about actual the obvious sending videos or pictures and stuff. Or when someone obviously holds power over someone elses job.

    But how is society supposed to move forward?

    I remember a female comedian once said the difference between flirting and harassment is if you think the guy is cute.

  • Dee Evolution

    PC culture is so dangerous. “Guys, you better watch what you say, or else victims may not have the courage to confront their assailants.”

  • SilverSteel

    Finally feeling empowered. You must not be from this country. Women rule the corporate world now. And with an iron fist I might add. Plenty of reverse discrimination going on in HR too. There is validity in both sides, not just women.

    And we forget to mention the most exploited group of all and it’s genderless in its coldness. The poor. They get exploited on a daily basis not 20 years ago. There is injustice in every sector and everyone that is not a “protected” group is fair game. 😧

  • SilverSteel

    All of this conduct is acceptable from our leaders because the electorate does not demand ethical leaders. You can’t have it both ways. Where is the outrage?

    Yes, but when the accused lives are at stake and many people have been caught in false allegations, best to consider them innocent until the jury decides their guilt and real proof is brought forth. Then crush them…

  • Will

    I agree, see first comment by John where he states the accused deeds are horrible.

    The context is that the accusations are horrible.

    Say the accused are found to be innocent and the lady only made this up because she is crazy or something. That does not change the fact that what was accused is horrible.

  • capehouse

    Actually I’m married to a woman in a powerful position surrounded by men and I hear every day exactly what she goes through, so I know exactly what I’m talking about. Do you?

  • Charles Mullins

    All kinds of people have sent naked pics/videos to lovers and coworkers. Some are horrible and some are consensual. Sending a pornographic video is not always horrible, but it is always foolish. Need context to call it horrible.

  • Steve

    They all say it was consensual, even Bill Cosby, don’t believe it.

  • Will

    I agree again. But it is ironic that you keep saying CONTEXT. Because that is the exactly what you are missing…context.

    The context once again is in my reply to John Noh. He states “But the accused deeds are horrible”.

    And that is true because he is ONLY stating that the accused deeds ie- sexual harassment is horrible. At that point he is NOT talking about if the accused are innocent or guilty. Only that what they are accused of is horrible.

    So unless your position is that sexual harassment is not horrible you’re not getting the context of this whole thing.

    So YES, your above statement about it could be consensual and shared videos and pictures is true. However in the context of my comment in reply to John Noh it has no basis cause we are talking aboit the crime of sexual harassment and you are talking about this case.

  • Charles Mullins

    ….I dont know the accused deeds so I can not say if they are horrible or not. I have only read synopsis saying that she had videos on her phone of ike masturbating. My gut response is that it is foolish. I will reserve judgement until I know the context to say if it is horrible or not.

  • Will

    You are talking about this case again. Re read last paragraph…my comment has NOTHING to do with THIS case.

    My comment in the context of this whole post is that sexual harassment is horrible.

    You either agree that sexual harassment is horrible or not.

    The facts regarding the mess Ike is in have NO bearing on if you think sexual harassment is horrible…because once again…that was not the context of my comment.

    My comment once again has nothing to do with this case. I actually fully agree with your point that the context OF THIS CASE and how those videos and pictures came to her possession as alleged will determine if it actually is sexual harassment or just something foolish. But as you keep mentioning context is important…and in my comment you’re getting the context wrong.

    But thanks for keeping it civil, usually when replies get this many back and forth a it resorts to name calling. After this I won’t reply and we can just agree to disagree on what my context is.

    Lame reply. Are you saying that women don’t see men and want to have sex before anything? Prior to being married I’ve been invited over by women for the purpose of having sex. Not my doing. In fact, my current wife FIRST hit me up out of the blue. 5 years after graduating. Do you know what her reason was? She wanted to f*ck. So, please stop with this crap you’re spouting. You can surely ask a woman to f*ck. I’ve done it, I’ve had it happen to me as a man. Not everyone hates it. Some do. Some don’t. That’s why when you let your intentions be known and they say no, you back the hell off. Find the next p*ssy to dig into.
    Seriously. I can tell you didn’t have a lot of sex.
