Manchester By the Sea's Kenneth Lonergan Defends Casey Affleck in Op-Ed Response to College Student

Kenneth Lonergan, who directed Manchester by the Sea and won the Best Original Screenplay Oscar for his work on the film, is defending Casey Affleck against his sexual harassment charges.

A student at Kenneth‘s alma mater Wesleyan University wrote an op-ed in the newspaper – pointing out the praise for Kenneth without mentioning his affiliation with Casey, despite harassment allegations to his name. If you didn’t know, Casey was accused of sexual harassment, but settled the case back in 2010 and he has adamantly denied any wrongdoing.

“Wesleyan University has an obligation to reject sexual violence of all kinds,” Connor Aberle, the student, wrote. “Therefore, it cannot claim credit for Lonergan’s success without also recognizing his role in promoting Casey Affleck’s career. Wesleyan must either be cautious in its alumni praise, or it must admit to its students that it cares only about building the Wesleyan University brand rather than social justice or the well-being of the Wesleyan community.”

Casey Affleck Speaks About Past Sexual Harassment Allegations

Casey Affleck was asked about his sexual harassment allegations in the past after his whirlwind weekend where he won the 2017 Best Actor Oscar statue at the 2017 Academy Awards.

“I believe that any kind of mistreatment of anyone for any reason is unacceptable and abhorrent, and everyone deserves to be treated with respect in the workplace and anywhere else,” the 41-year-old Oscar winner told the Boston Globe about the 2010 lawsuit against him by two women. The case was settled out of court, and Casey has said the claims are untrue.

“There’s really nothing I can do about it,” Casey continued. “Other than live my life the way I know I live it and to speak to what my own values are and how I try to live by them all the time.”
