Ousted Grammys CEO Calls Academy A ‘Boys Club’

Recently ousted Grammys CEO Deborah Dugan says she was given the boot after complaining about sexual harassment and the gender pay gap. In a discrimination lawsuit filed against the Recording Academy, Dugan calls the organization a “boys’ club”, says she was sexually harassed by an official and claims she was paid less than her male predecessor. The Academy, meanwhile, says it placed Dugan on administrative leave over a complaint that she was “abusive” and created a work environment that was “toxic and intolerable”. All of this comes just days before the 2020 Grammy Awards, which air this Sunday, January 26th.
