MANHATTAN, NEW YORK CITY: An Emmy-nominated weatherman was fired from work after screenshots of him performing sexually explicit content on an adult webcam were leaked and sent to his boss and mother. Meteorologist Erick Adame was exposed by a random user who went the extra mile to inform the world of 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 issue an apology. He wrote, "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. On this site, I acted out my compulsive behaviors, while at home, by performing on camera for other men. It was 100% consensual on both of our parts. I wasn't paid for this, and it was absurd of me to think I could keep this private."

"Nonetheless, my employer found out and I was suspended and then terminated. It was absurd of me to think I could keep this private. Nevertheless, my employer found out and I was suspended and then terminated," says the weatherman. Adame boasts an impressive career that spans 15 years, with two Emmy nominations, with five years as a meteorologist at NY1 before the scandal. Adame further writes in his Instagram post, "Let me be clear: I don't apologize for being gay or for being sex-positive - those are gifts and I have no shame about them."

Adame seems to be going after the people who exposed his guilty pleasures. Recent court documents reveal that he has requested that the website provides him with the personal information of the user who shared this sensitive information so that he can sue them. Adame's legal petition in his Manhattan Supreme Court filed on Monday, September 19, claims that a man took naked photos of him without his permission on the video chat website, which is identified as Unit 4 Media LTD. The court documents read that the man then sent the photos to Adame's mother and boss with the intentions of "harassing, annoying, or alarming [Adame] and tortiously interfering with [Adame’s] employment relationship."

The usernames of these people include Sonal Prehonn, Tommysize29, Funtimes99, and Landonboy227. The possibility of Adame getting their personal information is bleak as the website has explained that it does not collect the personal information of the users and would be unable to help Adame. Unit 4 Media’s lawyer Lawrence Walters told the New York Post, “Our client’s policy is to comply with lawfully issued subpoenas and to provide relevant user data when legally required. Capturing and disseminating user content without consent violates our client’s Terms of Service and forum Rules which may result in a suspension or banning of the offending accounts."
