Multiple representatives inside the New York Mets organization say their complaints about improper work environment behavior were not acted on. The report also details charges of improper conduct or sexual harassment by David Newman, the Mets' chief marketing, content, and communications officer, and former marketing staffer Joe DeVito.
More than a dozen individuals, men, and women, told The Athletic that Holly Lindvall, Mets senior vice president of human resources and diversity, was mindful of complaints of harassing language and activities without action being taken against the culprits. Complaints included sexist comments by previous proprietor Jeff Wilpon and previous chief Mickey Callaway.
The individuals told The Athletic they felt Lindvall would rather keep ownership happy than investigate their complaints. Newman told The Athletic that he didn't recall making such comments.
DeVito allegedly sent improper text messages to ladies and gave one lady an unsolicited back rub. He resigned from his position in March, saying he needed to reassess his career, and sent an e-mail stating that he won't dignify the allegations.
