Morgan Freeman Accused of Sexual Harassment: CNN

Legendary veteran actor Morgan Freeman is the latest Hollywood figure to be accused of sexual misconduct against women, according to CNN.

Several women have come forward with allegations that allegedly occurred even on movie sets, including a woman who alleges Freeman “kept trying to lift up my skirt and asking if I was wearing underwear.”

In all, 16 people spoke to CNN about Freeman as part of this investigation, eight of whom said they were victims of what some called harassment and others called inappropriate behavior by Freeman. Eight said they witnessed Freeman’s alleged conduct. These 16 people together described a pattern of inappropriate behavior by Freeman on set, while promoting his movies and at his production company Revelations Entertainment.–CNN

Morgan Freeman is one of the entertainment industry’s biggest names. Its unclear what the impact of these allegations will mean for the 80 year old’s career and finances, but he now joins a growing list of accused and discredited big entertainment names such as Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby, both of whom are facing serious litigation over their own misconduct allegations.
