This year has shown us so many people falling from grace. And this time 80 years old legendary actor Morgan Freeman is the man in question. He is been accused of sexual misconduct by eight women.
A CNN report has quoted multiple women, including journalists, describing troubling incidents throughout the Oscar winning actor's career that spans nearly five decades.
In all, 16 people spoke to CNN about Freeman as part of the investigation -- eight witnesses and eight who claim to be victims. They have alleged he behaved inappropriately on set, while promoting his movies and at his production company Revelations Entertainment.
CNN's reporter Chloe Melas, who co-authored the article, was the only victim who spoke on the record.
CNN reached out to Freeman's spokesperson for comment and then, at his request, e-mailed him a detailed list of the accusations against him.
While the spokesperson did not respond to multiple follow-ups by email seeking comment on the accusations, Freeman released a statement after the article was published.It read: "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."
The truth is still to be discovered and we hope justice is done.
