Having said that, if you have enough people tell you they find you inappropriate at some point you catch up with the times.  


@Laura14, I am one of those with whom you will not be popular. No offense.

Well, I have seen him in a nasty, demeaning mood. That doesn’t mean that he is necessarily guilty of the accusations. However, I would not be surprised if the charges proved to be true.

Re: Morgan Freeman, too? Harassment allegations.

This one is truly disappointing.  I have always thought he was a great guy, but what a shame.  They are finally catching up with these guys that are "of that age"  because in their day it was done, without a word said.  Thank goodness things have turned around and women are getting more respect.

I like Mr. Freeman, (why are these women so late to the fair, on this?) Unless this just occured, I don't get it. 


They are ,"late to the fair" because women have always kept silent about things like this untill now ,when others have started speaking up !!!

It seems like every man in show business has sexually harassed some one at one time, it doesn't surprise me.

Call me when there's solid proof....and then we'll talk.   Allegations are enough.  Not that I consider this alleged behavior to be in the same category as Harvey Weinstein or Matt Lauer.  They are totally different things.

Re: Morgan Freeman, too? Harassment allegations.

I am sad about this as quite a few years ago I was in the then small theatre in the round in Covent Garden with a girlfriend to see The Glass Menagerie - very trendy little theatre we all sat around the stage shoulder to shoulder on hard back chairs - this big guy came in and sat next to me - and I looked and said 'don't I know you are you from S,F?'   I was living in S.F. at the time and visiting London.

 

He just gave me this lovely smile and then I realized Morgan Freeman - he was with the most beautiful, tall, lady - I assume his wife - but he was so nice!   So sad about these accusations.

Re: Morgan Freeman, too? Harassment allegations.

I don't see going back decades and accusing men of behavior that was looked over and sometimes consensual in office settings.  That was then, go forward and change things NOW and speak up NOW.  

 

I never condone going back and trying to punish people for the past.  Times change, go forward.  If we look to the past for vengence, we will never make the future right.  We are too busy worrying about what WAS.

 

I am not talking criminal behavior here.  So it is hard to say what I'm thinking.  But I do believe we need to go FORWARD.
