Could YOU resist sexually harassing someone in yoga attire, all bending over and posing like that??
Yeah, easily! We're not awful people! LOLz!
Bikram Choudhury, the founder of Hot Yoga, has been accused of sexual harassment and discrimination by one of his top students. Also, he's 67 years old, and that makes something gross even grosser.
Sarah Baughn, 29, is claiming that Bikram went after her for years — and that he said nutso things like that they were connected in a past life and his wife didn't understand him. Then it turned physical, and we assume Sarah hasn't stopped vomiting.
In the suit, it even says that he denied her an international championship title she had been awarded and has prevented her from teaching because:
"of her past and continuing refusal to have sex with her guru."
Here are some of the things she says in the suit that Bikram said:
"My wife is such a bitch, you have no idea. I am so lonely. I am dying. I can feel myself dying. I will not be alive if someone doesn't save me."
Pathetic. That's no excuse to sexually harass someone!
Other members of the studio say that Bikram is "not a good man" but a "good teacher". Whatever the hell that means! Oh, and if you're not grossed out enough and think this isn't that bad he:
"… pushed her down towards the floor after pulling her leg apart and opening her body. [He pressed himself against her and] began whispering sexual things to her until she collapsed in sobs."
Excuse us while we go take a shower! Ewwwwww!!
If this is true, we hope she gets everything she wants!
