We have terminated Jared Porter this morning . In my initial press conference I spoke about the importance of integrity and I meant it.There should be zero tolerance for this type of behavior.— Steven Cohen (@StevenACohen2) January 19, 2021
Jared Porter is now the former General Manager of the NY Mets. Fans were trying to figure out why he wasn't fired last night as soon as the story came to light. The Mets had to fact check the story and make sure they buttoned up all the legal dealings with firing someone with a contract.
