Magic Johnson: Michigan State Employees Who Ignored Sex Abuse Should Be Fired

Basketball Hall of Famer and Michigan State alumnus Magic Johnson called on the university to fire anyone who knew about the sexual assaults committed against women amid the fallout from the Larry Nassar trial.

"If anyone was aware of the sexual assault happening to women on the MSU campus from the office of the President, Board of Trustees, athletic department, faculty & campus police, and didn’t say or do anything about it, they should be fired," Johnson tweeted Monday.

Nassar, who served as Michigan State's lead sports physician, was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison for sexually abusing more than 140 underage girls during his time at the school and as a doctor for USA Gymnastics.
