Erick Adame, former Spectrum News NY1 meteorologist, recently quit social media after expressing the emotional and financial impact of being fired from the station last year due to leaked nude screenshots.

Adame has struggled to find work since the incident, but remains hopeful for a second chance in the industry.

“The toll this has taken on me mentally and financially is hard to even begin to describe,” Adame wrote in a now-deleted post. (Trending: SNL Legend Unleashes On Democrats)

“I’m still pushing forward and trying my hardest to stay positive, but I need to take a break from social media,” he added.

Adame confessed that sending pictures was “something I had done before but wasn’t caught in this way until then.”

“Months later someone would send these images to my mom, my bf and my work,” explained the ex-meteorologist.

Howard Bragman, Adame’s crisis management manager reportedly said, “I think it’s a different generation out there.”

“I think younger people just don’t care about these kinds of things; it’s not an issue. I think when you talk about people under 40, virtual sex and nude photos are pretty much part of the life,” he added.

“Once I did it a few times and no one recognized me, I got comfortable,” Adame had previously confessed.

“I thought it was going to be these people in this small bubble that would ever see this or hear this,” lamented Adame.

Adame reportedly admitted that, “I knew as I was doing it, that it was a mistake.”

“What people don’t know, except for those that are close to me, is that afterward, I cried,” Adame said in an interview.

“I didn’t really understand why I did what I did. Sometimes sex is super complicated and you have this immediate regret. I literally cried because I felt the really high risk of what I had done,” said Adame.

Adding, “It’s been over a year, and I’m still getting emotional now talking about it. I loved my job so much.”

He started a weather subscription service and has had conversations with stations in the Deep South, providing some hope for the future.
