Sexual assault is now so widespread in Hollywood that the question to elite women is not “have you been exposed to unsolicited celebrity penis” but “who’s unsolicited celebrity penis have you been exposed to?” Naturally, like anything in life, there are winners and losers when it comes to sexual assault and harassment. Winners walk away with a settlement and typically didn’t do more than just watch without their given written or verbal consent, like anyone involved with Harvey Weinstein’s. Harvey created winners with his Midas tip, because when his member touched you keeping silent about allegations were worth their weight in gold. But on the other end of the spectrum we have the losers. That’s anyone who suffered the chore of sleeping with Bill Cosby against their will and now it looks like there’s a new challenger looking to take the crown for the “I thought he was a sweet old guy but he’s really a rapist” award. Morgan Freeman had his name pulled from the Me Too hat which just confirms that Hollywood is the rapey-er version of Game of Thrones. Full of plot twists and powerful men fighting for the throne that King Weinstein currently sits in.
CNN has released a detailed report where they spoke to 16 people who have worked with 80-year-old Morgan Freeman. 8 of them say that they experienced their skin crawling off of their body from Morgan touching them without asking and/or dribbling out comments about their body parts. And the other 8 claim they witnessed Morgan being gross to women.
A young production assistant tells CNN that while working on the movie Going In Style in 2015, Morgan touched her wrong and said things about her body on almost a daily basis. She says that Morgan would lift up her skirt to see if she was wearing underwear, and at one point, his co-star Alan Arkin told him to stop it. Hearing that from Alan supposedly freaked out Morgan and he didn’t know what to say.
One of the three, CNN entertainment reporter Chloe Melas, the co-author of this article, says she was subjected to inappropriate behavior by Freeman more than a year ago, when she interviewed him at a press junket for “Going in Style.” According to Melas, who was six months pregnant at the time, Freeman, in a room full of people, including his co-stars Arkin and Caine, shook Melas’ hand, not letting go while repeatedly looking her up and down and saying more than once a variation of, “I wish I was there.” She says he also said to her, “You are ripe.” Cameras were on and recording during one of Freeman’s remarks to Melas — “Boy, do I wish I was there” — but not for the rest.
There needs to be a sexual assault chart. Detailing how much each act is worth for silence. So far Morgan is mostly being accused of lewd commenting. Which comes with the territory of being an old man. Honestly when your penis is the only organ that hasn’t failed you at the age of 80 you should be allowed to say whatever you want. But the touching part is going too far if it’s true. You’ve made it to an age where most of the people you’ve grown up with are dead. Being lonely and horny will lead to less than decent comments from time to time. Freeman was just adhering to the rule of odds. Eventually some intern would have taken the bait with his ambitious but still ambiguous comments that are being labeled as sexual harassment. Morgan just knew he was pitching to a generation that openly admits to eating ass. “May I take you on a lunch date and for a walk in the park” wouldn’t have worked on any woman below the age of 80. And what 80-year-old wants to make love to another 80-year-old.
