Skip to comments.Women accuse Morgan Freeman of inappropriate behavior, harassment

(CNN)A young production assistant thought she had landed the job of her dreams when, in the summer of 2015, she started work on "Going In Style," a bank heist comedy starring Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin.
But the job quickly devolved into several months of harassment, she told CNN. She alleges that Freeman subjected her to unwanted touching and comments about her figure and clothing on a near-daily basis. Freeman would rest his hand on her lower back or rub her lower back, she said. In one incident, she said, Freeman "kept trying to lift up my skirt and asking if I was wearing underwear." He never successfully lifted her skirt, she said -- he would touch it and try to lift it, she would move away, and then he'd try again. Eventually, she said, "Alan [Arkin] made a comment telling him to stop. Morgan got freaked out and didn't know what to say."
Freeman's alleged inappropriate behavior was not limited to that one movie set, according to other sources who spoke to CNN. A woman who was a senior member of the production staff of the movie "Now You See Me" in 2012 told CNN that Freeman sexually harassed her and her female assistant on numerous occasions by making comments about their bodies. "He did comment on our bodies... We knew that if he was coming by ... not to wear any top that would show our breasts, not to wear anything that would show our bottoms, meaning not wearing clothes that [were] fitted," she said.

Probably all of them. It’s just a matter of time.
#MeToo claims another Democrat.
The bong hits keep on coming.
Why hasn’t Harvey Wienswine been charged and arrested? DemonRats protecting him?? Anyone else would be before a judge already.
“Driving Miss Daisy” suddenly has new meaning.
Hey, hey, hey!
Another Trump hating Hollywood leftist has been accused.
Knew it. Have been waiting for him to be accused. He has the creepy vibe.
Because it’s not illegal to be a lecherous scumbag. The actual “crimes” being alleged are not very numerous and unfortunately do not come with enough evidence to act upon.
Just wait until they get around to Samuel L. Jackson...
Rats don’t know about or understand the “let he who is without sin cast the first stone” challenge. They have been throwing stones just as fast and hard as they can for years and years. Turns out those doing the stoning for so long do not have the standing to do so. . . not that it was a surprise or unexpected. Now their moral high ground is rapidly crumbling beneath their feet.
A great number of people in this country simply need a rigorous self evaluation and moral inventory . . .plus a very heavy dose of humility.
>>Why hasnt Harvey Wienswine been charged and arrested? DemonRats protecting him?? <<
I think they are waiting for the class action suit that is every woman alive who has ever appeared on or auditioned for film or TV.
For me, this #MeToo thing is for the moment popcorn city. I worry when then net starts to include us boomers who said an sexual joke in the office in mixed company sometime in the 70s or 80s
“Driving Miss Daisy suddenly has new meaning.”
More like “Driving Mister Johnson,” seems to me!
Yes it all a matter of time for old Sam. When that happens hello huge divorce settlement. He has been married to the same woman a long time.
