Morgan Freeman Speaks Out After Inappropriate Behavior Allegations: 'I Did Not Assault Women'

Morgan Freeman is speaking out for a second time after he was accused of inappropriate behavior.

The 80-year-old actor issued a second statement after apologizing to “anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected” earlier this week.

“I am devastated that 80 years of my life is at risk of being undermined, in the blink of an eye, by Thursday’s media reports,” Morgan said in his new statement.

He continued, “All victims of assault and harassment deserve to be heard. And we need to listen to them. But it is not right to equate horrific incidents of sexual assault with misplaced compliments or humor. I admit that I am someone who feels a need to try to make women – and men – feel appreciated and at ease around me. As a part of that, I would often try to joke with and compliment women, in what I thought was a light-hearted and humorous way.”

“Clearly I was not always coming across the way I intended. And that is why I apologized Thursday and will continue to apologize to anyone I might have upset, however unintentionally,” he added.

“But I also want to be clear: I did not create unsafe work environments. I did not assault women. I did not offer employment or advancement in exchange for sex. Any suggestion that I did so is completely false,” Morgan concluded.

In the report, two people, including a production assistant on Going In Style, said they were subjected to unwanted touching. The production assistant claimed he made “comments about her figure and clothing on a near-daily basis,” and that he would “rest his hand on her lower back or rub her lower back.”

She also said he “kept trying to lift up my skirt and asking if I was wearing underwear.”

In another instance, an entertainment reporter and member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association said that he “made comments about her skirt and her legs during two different junkets.”

As with several other women featured in the article, she said “Freeman’s fame and power kept her from speaking out.”

CNN reported that they reached out to Morgan‘s spokesperson for comment “and then, at his request, emailed him a detailed list of the accusations against Freeman. The spokesperson did not respond to multiple follow-ups by email seeking comment on the accusations.”
