Former Spectrum News NY1 meteorologist Erick Adame quit X, formerly Twitter, this week after telling his followers that his firing from the station last year has had a profound effect on him “emotionally and financially.”
Adame was fired from the New York City station in September last year, after nude screenshots of him on an adult website were leaked.
“The toll this has taken on me mentally and financially is hard to even begin to describe,” Adame wrote on X Friday, according to the New York Post. He deleted his account soon after the post. “I’m still pushing forward and trying my hardest to stay positive, but I need to take a break from social media.”
Adame admitted it was “something I had done before but wasn’t caught in this way until then. Months later someone would send these images to my mom, my bf and my work.”
