Morgan Freeman has been #1 trending on Twitter since I woke up this morning!!
Could actor Morgan Freeman be in the cross hairs of the #MeToo Movement?
The legendary actor is being accused of sexual harassment, unwanted touching and other inappropriate behavior. The accusations are coming from eight different women that have worked with and around Freeman over the years.
CNN spoke to 16 people who were either subjected to Freeman's behavior or witnessed his alleged misconduct.
One woman who worked on the set of Freeman's movie Going in Style says the actor subjected her to sexually charged comments and unwanted touches on a near-daily basis, like "trying to lift up my skirt and asking if I was wearing underwear."
One of the accusers even includes an entertainment reporter from CNN who claims that Freeman made inappropriate comments about her including saying "You are ripe" and "Boy, do I wish I was there," in reference to her recent pregnancy.
Freeman has issued a statement regarding the accusations of inappropriate behavior and harassment. While the Screen Actors Guild is considering yanking his Life Achievement Award that he received back in January.
