Morgan Freeman Responds To Accusations
It was first reported by CNN, that actor Morgan Freeman was accused by 8 women of Sexual Harassment.
It did not take long to get an official statement from Morgan Freeman.
“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.” – Morgan Freeman
The women are accusing Morgan Freeman of doing things like trying to lift up their skirts, resting his hand on their lower back, and giving the women compliments about their body. One of the women accused the actor of staring at their breast for an extended period of time. An intern stated that Morgan being to rub her shoulders and it made her very uncomfortable.
If these women are absolutely telling the truth, Morgan Freeman actions were inappropriate. How I define sexual harassment Morgan Freeman definitely is guilty of that. I will say this If Morgan Freeman is penalized for this, 60% of men in America should get the same penalty.
Again assuming these allegations are true, I don’t believe Morgan Freeman “crossed the line”. What I mean by that is he did not full-out sexually assault these women. If allegations are true he is 100% guilty of sexual harassment. At the minimum, he should probably be monitored around other females in the work environment.
One question I would ask is, why make these allegations public now?
