    ESPN still seems like a cool place to work.

    [B][SIZE="5"]Keith Clinkscales says he’s the target of a smear campaign[/SIZE][/B]

    BY Scott Shifrel And Bill Hutchinson
    NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

    Wednesday, November 2 2011, 9:19 PM


    An ex-ESPN executive says he’s being slandered by a former colleague who’s spreading a “flat-out lie” that he fondled himself on an airplane while sitting next to sports reporter Erin Andrews.

    In a defamation lawsuit filed Wednesday, Keith Clinkscales claims he’s the target of a smear campaign orchestrated by a female employee he fired.

    Clinkscales, who is black, claims Joan Lynch, who is white, lied about him to fellow colleagues because he was promoted over her to senior vice president of content development.

    The lawsuit was filed in Manhattan Criminal Court hours before Deadspin.com quoted an anonymous source detailing Clinkscales’ alleged midair incident with Andrews.

    The source — referred to by the web site as “Connie” — claimed Andrews caught Clinkscales masturbating under an iPad while sitting next to him on a commercial flight in February. In the suit, Clinkscales charges Lynch is the Deadspin source and that she was driven by “racial animus” to smear Clinkscales.

    “It’s shocking behavior and I look forward to her explaining herself in a courtroom,” Clinkscales attorney, Judd Burstein, told the Daily News.

    Clinkscales left ESPN earlier this year to start his own production company when the network disbanded its content development group.

    Lynch could not be reached for comment. A representative for Andrews did not respond to an email.

    ESPN officials declined to comment on the lawsuit.

    “With respect to these reports, we want to state very clearly that in accordance with ESPN policies, if a claim is brought to our attention, it is taken very seriously and responded to appropriately,” said ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz.

    Eventually the truth will come out but I just don't understand the issue with people finding it necessary to whack off on airplanes every week lately. I understand the "mile high club" and would have a little more respect for the guy if he took Erin Andrews into the bathroom and played out the fantasy there, but really, to pleasure himself on a plane in the open where kids are is just ridiculous!!

    I had no idea Erin Andrews was such a naughty girl! I'd definately like to perform a little racial animus on her. :yes:

    Assuming her allegations are true.

    I have a hard time imagining a top exec for ESPN fapping at his seat on an airplane....though the Hampur has seen more bizarre things.

    This is just so strange. :spin:

    A senior VP playing with himself on a plane in his seat?

    and then under an IPad? seriously? Not even a blanket?

    he's next to Erin A but she didn't complain?

    some other woman supposedly made a complaint about it? where was she on the plane? was she even on the plane or it is second-hand?

    so he's suing this other woman, who may or may not be the source?

    did he lose his job over this alleged incident?

    tres bizarre! :googly:

    He must have a tiny endowment if he could pull it off under an iPad.

    I considered it once on a greyhound bus, but the smell of foot odor and fritos was a turn off.
