Hilarie Burton Reveals She Never Received an Apology From 'One Tree Hill' Execs After Sexual Harassment Claims

Hilarie Burton is opening up about her decision to speak out against One Tree Hill showrunner Mark Schwahn.

Back in 2017, the 37-year-old actress joined the rest of the cast in writing a statement about how they were treated in “traumatizing” and “downright illegal” ways on set.

“I kept quiet for a very, very long time because there was all this fear that not only would it jeopardize my career but it would hurt the careers of anyone else. It would destroy the fantasy for the fan base. There was a lot of pressure to just shut up,” Hilarie told People.

She added that while it’s “been empowering to take control of our narrative,” they still have never gotten an apology.

She added, “We still have never received an apology or a phone call from anybody who was in any position of power. No producers, no executives, not one single person has ever reached out to us. It’s not shocking.”
