NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! A lawsuit was submitted on Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court accusing former MLB player Kenny Lofton of firing a female employee after she complained to supervisors and accusing him of showing a female colleague photos of his penis.
The action was brought by Brandyn Toney, a former employee of Proxime Corporation and Loftons Centerblock Asset Management. Toney asserted in the lawsuit that a lady tasked with keeping an eye on Lofton’s Instagram and direct message activity had discovered that the former Cleveland Indians outfielder had sent photographs of his private area to numerous women.

The employee “was subjected to unwelcome exposure by the company’s top executive as a common aspect of her job,” the lawsuit claims. Toney issued his own email in June to express his displeasure about Lofton’s alleged behavior on his Instagram account after the female employee reportedly brought up the matter with the in-house counsel in February. Toney asserted that he was fired two hours after bringing up the problem.
According to a news release by Toneys’ attorney Ronald L. Zambrano, “Lofton and his executive team thought they could terminate our client for objecting to clear sexual misconduct and even thought they could get away with not paying him for his work.” That illustrates the conceit and dysfunction that permeate Centerblock and Proxime every day.
According to the lawsuit, Lofton’s business, Centerblock, hasn’t given Toney any of the $85,000 compensation he was promised when he first joined the company.

For “retaliation under the Fair Employment and Housing Act, failure to prevent and/or rectify harassment, violation of contract, and several state and federal labor rules, among other claims,” a news release stated that damages were sought from Loftons enterprises and its officials.
The Centerblocks website states that it was developed to answer the significant demand for NFTs (non-fungible tokens).
