Alex Jones accused of sexual harassment, racism and anti-Semitism

Two former employees filed complaints against Infowars founder Alex Jones alleging he made racist and anti-Semitic comments, groomed them for sex, and groped a female staffer.

Rob Jacobson, who worked as a video editor for Infowars for 13 years, filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission claiming Jones frequently singled out his Jewish background and referred to him as a “beefcake” over the course of four years, according to documents obtained by the Daily Mail.

Jacobson, who said the term referred to male porn stars, wrote, “I felt like this was intimidating and harassing and a form of sexual harassment in that he was grooming me for homosexual sex.”

Jones also allowed his friend to enter the video editor’s office and display images from gay porn on his computer, according to Jacobson.

The conspiry theorist, who had a number of other nicknames for Jacobson, including “Resident Jew,” “The Jewish Individual,” and “Yacobson,” once photoshopped his face onto the body of a Hasidic Jewish man and circulated it around the office, the complaint states.

Ashley Beckford filed another EEOC complaint alleging she was subject to harassment, racial slurs, and a “hostile, sexually offensive work environment.”

The African American production assistant said she was discriminated against “when it came to my salary/wages and benefits, in regards to my dress, including my hair style.”

She was also mocked for her skin tone and called a “coon” by a senior manager, she said in the complaint.

Beckford also alleged Jones once groped her butt and asked, “Who wouldn’t want to have a black wife?”

“I felt embarrassed and nervous, but I knew that he had specifically touched my behind at that moment as a sly come-on that other people may not notice,” she wrote.

“It’s my opinion that it was his intention to see if he could groom me for sexual exploitation,” Beckford added.

Jones vehemently denied the allegations, calling them “completely, totally false.”
