NYC weatherman Erick Adame fired after webcam nudes sent to boss

An Emmy-nominated Spectrum News NY1 weatherman claims he was fired after someone took nude photos of him on an adult webcam site and sent them to his boss, according to a new lawsuit.

Former NY1 meteorologist Erick Adame announced his termination and revealed he was receiving professional help for his “compulsive behavior” in a statement on Instagram released shortly after the court filings were filed Monday.

“Although I am a public figure and have been on television five days a week in front of millions of people in the country’s largest market for more than a decade and a half, I have secretly appeared on an adult webcam website,” Adame confessed in the post.

Erick Adame says he was fired from his job as NY1 weatherman after nude photos of him from an adult webcam video in which he appeared were sent to his employer.

“It was preposterous for me to think I could keep this private,” he wrote. “Nevertheless, my employer found out about it and I was suspended and then fired.”

His legal plea in his Manhattan Supreme Court says a man took nude photos of him without his permission on the video chat site identified as Unit 4 Media LTD.

The individual then sent the images to his mother and NY1 “with the intent to harass, annoy or alarm them [Adame] and disturb without permission [Adame’s] employment relationship,” according to the court documents.

Adame is seeking a court order to force the site to reveal the identity of the individual – whose usernames include Sonal Prehonn, Tommysize29, Funtimes99 and Landonboy227.

In his Instagram statement, Adame apologized to his employer, colleagues, audience, friends and family “for any embarrassment or humiliation I have caused you.”

“I had the job of my dreams and lost it due to my own misjudgment,” he wrote.

Adame says he’s getting professional help for his “compulsive behavior” to appear in these male webcam videos.

He assured everyone that he is “getting the professional help I need to make appropriate decisions that don’t affect those I care about or my career as I move forward in life.”

Adame added that he doesn’t apologize for being gay or sex positive and implored potential future employers to give him a second chance rather than define him by the “salacious video,” which is only a few minutes long.

“I acted out my compulsive behavior at home by performing on camera for other men,” Adame wrote, adding that the videos were “100% consensual” on both sides and he was not paid for it.

He said he learned a lesson and assured future employers that he will be “a model employee and the most informed and enthusiastic meteorologist you will ever come across”.

Unit 4 Media attorney Lawrence Walters told The Post, “Our client’s policy is to comply with lawfully issued subpoenas and provide relevant user data when required by law.”

Walters noted, “Collecting and distributing User Content without consent is a violation of our client’s Terms of Service and Forum Rules, which may result in a suspension or ban of the offending accounts.”

A spokesman for NY1’s parent company, Charter Communications, declined to comment.

A judge will rule on Adame’s petition at a later date. NYC weatherman Erick Adame fired after webcam nudes sent to boss
