Morgan Freeman ‘Devastated’ His ‘Humor’ Considered Sexual Harassment, Issues Second Apology
Morgan Freeman has decided to release a second apology after being accused of sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior by eight women.
In his second apology, Freeman says that his actions were “misplaced compliments or humor”
that might have been taken out of context, not sexual harassment.
“I am devastated that 80 years of my life is at risk of being undermined, in the blink of an eye, by Thursday’s media reports,” he said, as per a statement published by journalist Yashar Ali.
“All victims of assault and harassment deserve to be heard. And we need to listen to them. But it is not right to equate horrific incidents of sexual assault with misplaced compliments or humor.”
