David Schwimmer Would Never Tolerate Sexual Harassment on the 'Friends' Set

David Schwimmer combats sexual harassment in the industry with a new video series titled #ThatsHarassment.

The 50-year-old actor enlisted stars like Cynthia Nixon, Emmy Rossum, and Grace Gummer to help him with the project.

David says that workplace harassment happens all the time, but he would never tolerate it on the set of Friends.

“Our set was really, pretty cool…I think that’s in part because of who we were as actors, and the executive producers on the show were not going to let anything like that happen,” David said during a panel with Cosmo. “On other shows and other sets, it was worse.”

He also said, “The reality is there’s still fear of retaliation. There’s going to be some kind of repercussion…If you post it to social media, bye bye to your job. Am I right? It’s often a he-said-she-said. How do you prove this? We’re trying to get at the culture and generate as much awareness, for men, as well. We just feel like men have trouble really understanding where the line is.”

    This vid makes such a clear point that watching it made me feel uncomfortable. I would never allow this, I can’t believe women and men in the industry would put up with this. Is fame and money more valuable than dignity.

    What a chump. He was on the show over 20 years ago. I highly doubt he was pulling this social justice crap when he was in his 20′s and on a hit show.
