Chris Cuomo apologises for incident with female executive but denies it was ‘sexual’

CNN’s Chris Cuomo has apologised for harassing a TV producer when they worked together at ABC News, but says the interaction was not sexual.

In an essay for the New York Times, former ABC News executive producer Shelley Ross described an incident in which Mr Cuomo ‘squeezed the cheek of her buttock’ at a party without her permission in 2005.

Mr Cuomo responded to the allegation saying: “As Shelley acknowledges, our interaction was not sexual in nature. It happened 16 years ago in a public setting when she was a top executive at ABC. I apologized to her then, and I meant it.”
