The lawyer of Morgan Freeman demands on behalf of his client, a correction and apology from CNN. The news reported last Thursday that the actor by at least eight women have been accused of objectionable behavior and sexual harassment. Freeman denies the allegations.
“It is clear that CNN mr. Freeman has slandered”, is stated in the letter from the lawyer to CNN president Jeff Zucker, where The Wrap about features. “CNN has his reputation and career seriously damaged. CNN should at least immediately, to rectify and to apologise to mr Freeman through the same channels and with the same degree of attention that it used to be him mistakenly to attack,” said the lawyer.
“I am astonished that eighty years of my life in an instant threatens to be undermined by the messages of Thursday,” said Freeman Saturday in a comment, which he denies women sexual to have intimidated. “I also want to be clear: I do not have unsafe work environments created. I have no women attacked. I have no job or promotion is offered in exchange for sex. Any suggestion that I did is completely incorrect.”
