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.

These are the things you forget to think about when you're harassing an underling and subsequently writing on the internet that she's a prostitute.
