8 Women have accused the famous Oscar winner Morgan Freeman of sexual harassment.
Morgan Freeman has responded to their accusations and said, ‘I Apologize to Anyone Who Felt Uncomfortable’
Freeman said, “Anyone who knows me or has worked with me knows I am not someone who would intentionally offend or knowingly make anyone feel uneasy. I apologize to anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected — that was never my intent.”
A young production assistant said that Freeman commented on her clothes and figure.
Similarly, a female manager at Revelations said that “If I ever passed him he would stare at me in an awkward way, would look me up and down sometimes stopping and just staring. One time he stopped, looked me up and down as I walked into a room of people, and everyone burst out laughing. And I literally froze feeling very uncomfortable and one of the people in the office said, ‘Don’t worry, that’s just Morgan.’”
A former male employee said Freeman sometimes acted like a “creepy uncle.”One time I witnessed Morgan walk up to an intern and start massaging her” shoulder. “The intern got visibly red and wiggled out of his grasp, it was awkward.”
CNN in its investigation reported that, “Several other times during this investigation, when a CNN reporter contacted a person who had worked with Freeman to try to ask them if they had seen or been subjected to inappropriate behavior by an actor they had worked with—not initially even naming the actor they were asking about—the person would immediately tell them they knew exactly who the reporter had in mind: Morgan Freeman,”. Some of those people were sources for this investigation while others declined to comment further or did not want what they said used in this story.”
