MORGAN FREEMAN HIT WITH MULTIPLE ACCUSATIONS OF SEXUAL MISCONDUCT
Eight women have accused Oscar winner Morgan Freeman of sexual misconduct and sixteen people spoke to CNN about the actor's alleged inappropriate behavior throughout his career. The sixteen includes eight witnesses and eight who claim to be victims.
A young production assistant said that in the summer of 2015, while she was working on Freeman's bank heist comedy Going in Style, she was subjected to several months of harassment. She alleged that Freeman repeatedly touched her without permission, resting his hand on her lower back or rubbing her lower back, and frequently made comments about her figure and clothing.
CNN's investigation into Freeman's behavior came after the news company's own entertainment reporter Chloe Melas — who co-authored the article — claimed to have experienced harassment from him as well.
