Morgan Freeman Has Been Accused Of Sexual Harassment By Multiple Women
Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman has been accused of sexual harassment and misconduct by eight women.
The allegations span over several years on different movie sets Morgan worked on, including the 2015 film Going In Style.
A production assistant who worked on the film is one of the eight women who have come forward, and told CNN Morgan repeatedly tried to lift up her skirt to see if she was wearing underwear, and commented on her figure.
She also claimed that Morgan's co-star Alan Arkin saw what was happening and told Morgan to stop.

Another woman who worked on Now You See Me, claimed that Morgan made comments about her body and other women on set knew to "cover up when he was was around."
Even CNN reporter Chloe Melas said she was a victim of Morgan's sexual misconduct, when she was six months pregnant and he told her she looked "ripe," and insinuated that he wished he'd been there when she got pregnant.
Morgan has since issued an apology to TMZ which reads: "Anyone who knows me or has worked with me knows I am not someone who would intentionally offend or knowingly make anyone feel uneasy. I apologise to anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected - that was never my intent."
Sadly, Morgan joins a growing list of Hollywood heayvweights who have been accused of sexual misconduct. We are seriously hoping the #metoo movement, and others, can shed light on these atrocities and encourage other women to come forward.
