Weatherman sacked after boss was shown webcam snaps of him performing sex acts

A weatherman has been fired after his boss saw nude snaps of him creating sexual content on an adult website.

Sacked TV meteorologist, Erick Adame has employed a legal team to hunt down the person who took photos of his X-rated webcam footage and shared it with his employer in New York City, US.

In a statement shared on Instagram, the Emmy-nominated former Spectrum News NY1 star, described his "secret" antics as “compulsive behaviour” which has cost him his "dream job".

Erick 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 site."

He added that his compulsive behaviours were carried out at home for the entertainment of other men in "100% consensual" performances which he was never paid for.

Despite admitting it was "absurd" to think he could keep the footage private, Erick has employed lawyers to sue the culprit who snitched on him with grabs he took without permission.

The first hurdle for his team, however, is identifying the suspect behind various usernames including Sonal Prehonn, Tommysize29, Funtimes99, and Landonboy227 on the video chat site, Unit 4 Media LTD.

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.”

After apologising to his bosses, friends and family in his social media statement, Erick pleaded with future prospective employers to not judge him on the scandal.

He wrote: "I had the job of my dreams and I lost it due to my own lapse in judgment.

"I'd like to say something to the News Directors across the country-those who will make the ultimate decision whether or not to hire me in the future: Please judge me on the hundreds, thousands of hours of television that I am so proud of and that my employers have always commended me for, and not the couple of minutes of salacious video that is probably going to soon define me in our 'click-bait' culture."
