Good Morning America host slammed for ‘explicit Insta photos’

Executives at ABC are concerned about the newest host of Good Morning America’s Instagram photos…of him in cycling gear. Apparently, they are worried that DeMarco Morgan’s posts…of him wearing regular bibs and jersey, are too…titillating.

According to the New York Post, some of the management at parent company Disney have asked him to remove the “offensive photos.”
