New York City’s Times-Picayune newspaper has come under fire after it published nude photos of the magazine’s staff members and its former editor, sparking a backlash from many readers.

The New York Post reported that the nude photos appeared on the front page of the Times-picayune on Monday.

The publication has denied the allegations.

The magazine said the images were published because of “a serious allegation.”

“We are saddened and disappointed that an allegation of this nature has come to light,” the paper said in a statement.

The paper published a statement saying it was investigating the matter.

The Times- Picayune is one of several major newspapers to come under scrutiny this year for the sexual harassment and misconduct allegations against its staff members.

In December, the paper reported that former publisher Kevin Sullivan had engaged in “sexually explicit conduct with a male staffer.”
