Lawyer For Guy Accused Of Sexually Harassing Employee, Forcing Her To Sleep With Him, Writing On The Internet That She's A Prostitute: "Mistakes" Were Made

Let he who hasn't sexually harassed an employee and then besmirched her name on the World Wide Web cast the first stone!

Here are a list of things Ben Wey, CEO of New York Global Group, has been accused of in a lawsuit by Hanna Bouveng, a model turned marketing officer of the company (whose $3,600/month Tribeca apartment he covered):

  • Pressuring Bouveng to dress provocatively on the job
  • Waging "a relentless campaign to have sex with her"
  • Ultimately having sex with her for approximately 120 seconds ("He has sex with her and it's over in two minutes. She was horrified and debased")
  • Firing her in 2014 after she complained and saying the termination was because her "love of nightclubs were becoming an issue"
  • Writing on a website he owns called The Blot Magazine "that she's a prostitute, that she hangs out with cocaine dealers...[that] she's a terrible person"

And here is what Wey's lawyer had to say on his client's behalf (in addition to denying sexually harassing her):

"Sure, Ben Wey made some mistakes in the way he dealt with Ms. Bouveng. But he cared."

Everyone who knows Ben Wey knows that when he really cares about a person, he (allegedly!) forces them to sleep with him and then (allegedly!) calls them a hooker online. The only "mistake" he made was caring too much. No further questions.
