Cheerleaders say 'groping and sexual harassment' are just part of the job — and they're not alone

Bailey Davis, 22, recently filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission claiming she was fired from the New Orleans Saintsations for posting an Instagram of herself wearing a one-piece bathing suit. However, the former professional cheerleader’s mistreatment is just one example of mistreatment in the industry. In fact, several current and former cheerleaders recently told The New York Times that they’re routinely subjected to harassment and groping by fans.
