Documentarian Morgan Spurlock Admits Past Sexual Misconduct: 'I Am Part of the Problem'

Documentarian Morgan Spurlock, known for his work on Super Size Me and other documentaries, has admitted to past sexual misconduct claims against him.

“You see, I’ve come to understand after months of these revelations, that I am not some innocent bystander, I am also a part of the problem,” Morgan wrote in a note to Twitter followers. ” When I was in college, a girl who I hooked up with on a one night stand accused me of rape. Not outright. There were no charges or investigations, but she wrote about the instance in a short story writing class and called me by name. A female friend who was in the class told be about it afterwards…. This wasn’t how I remembered it at all. In my mind, we’d been drinking all night and went back to my room. We began fooling around, she pushed me off, then we laid in the bed and talked and laughed some more, and then began fooling around again. We took off our clothes. She said she didn’t want to have sex, so we laid together, and talked, and kissed, and laughed, and then we started having sex.”

“Then there was the time I settled a sexual harassment allegation at my office. This was around 8 years ago, and it wasn’t a gropy feely harassment. It was verbal, and it was just as bad. I would call my female assistant “hot pants” or “sex pants” when I was yelling to her from the other side of the office. Something I thought was funny at the time, but then realized I had completely demeaned and belittled her to a place of non-existence,” he continued.

Morgan added on his Twitter that he’s seeking help to “be better.”

    I’m glad he’s holding himself accountable and being proactive about it. I pray others follow suit.

    He may as well come forward, its only a matter of time before these women were gonna come out as “alleged victims” Not sure what “help” he needs though. What treatment does one get for having a bad sense of humor?

    And as far as what went down in college, a lot of young women play games and end up doing things they don’t really want to do because they feel obligated after acting like and doing everything to make men believe they want to have sex to keep their attention.

    if someone wants to have sex with you and you don’t then its time to go home. not lay there makeout more and take off your clothes. Talk about mixed messages…

    maybe we should have schools teach “only yes means yes” instead of “no means no” because there’s so many in betweens, like you said.
