The Hollywood sexual harassment testimonials keep pouring in following the recent revelation of filmmaker Harvey Weinstein’s multiple sexual assault cases over the years.
Now “Dawson’s Creek” James Van Der Beek is the latest Hollywood star to come forward with his past experiences with sexual harassment in the entertainment industry.
The “Varsity Blues” actor recently took to Twitter where he posted a series of tweets where he revealed that an “older, powerful man….had my ass grabbed by older, powerful men.”
Van Der Beek’s tweets come after “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” actor Terry Crews similar Twitter rant where he admitted to also having been sexually harassed by a male producer in Hollywood.
Both Van Der Beek and Crews’ claims come after a major scandal surrounding Hollywood honcho Harvey Weinstein. The revelation of Weinstein’s multiple sexual harassment cases recently came to surface following articles in The New York Times and The New Yorker that detailed decades worth of harassment cases involving Weinstein’s alleged misconduct towards women. More than a dozen women have come forward, including three who have accused him of rape. The now-disgraced Hollywood titan has received widespread condemnation, including from former President Barack Obama. On Sunday, Weinstein was fired from his namesake company.
