We all have that moment we wish we could change or at least have done things differently. And so does NY1 Meteorologist, Erick Adame. In September 2022, he secretly appeared on an adult webcam website, which then eventually cost him his dream job.
Keep reading this Erick Adame Bio to learn all about him.
NY1 Meteorologist Erick Adame Fired
Erick Adame was fired from his job as the meteorologist at Spectrum News, NY1 right after an anonymous person on an adult webcam site took nude photos of him and sent them to his boss.
According to the meteorologist, Erick acted out of his “compulsive behaviors” while at home — performing on camera for other men. But it was “100% consensual” on both sides and he wasn’t paid for them. So, leaking those pictures was not only immoral but also illegal.
Now, Erick wants to take legal action against the user who goes by the names Sonal Prehonn, Tommysize29, Funtimes99, and Landonboy227. He even was seeking a court order to force the site to reveal the identity of the person noting that he intends to sue them but needs their real identity to do so.
“It was absurd of me to think I could keep this private,” Erick wrote in a letter over his IG.
The meteorologist also expressed his regret stating, “despite being a public figure and being on television in the biggest market in the country in front of millions of people five days a week for more than a decade and a half, I secretly appeared on an adult webcam website.”
Apologetically, Erick then added he couldn’t change back what happened but was “getting the professional help” he needed so he could make “appropriate decisions” that didn’t affect those he care deeply about, as well as his career.
However, though he apologized for his actions, Erick remarked that he wasn’t apologizing for being gay or sex-positive. “I have no shame about them. Right now I’m adrift in my life for the first time in many years,” he added.
