CBS has fired host Charlie Rose following the allegations of sexual misconduct leveled at him.
According to the Associated Press, Rose has been terminated from the network after eight different women came forward and accused Rose of sexual harassment and assault, including walking around naked in front of them, lewd phone calls, and inappropriate touching.
CBS initially suspended Rose when the news broke.
Rose soon released a statement in which he said he takes responsibility for his actions, though he felt these feelings were shared between him and the women he was pursuing.
