In what is now becoming a daily occurrence (including Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey), another Hollywood heavyweight – director Brett Ratner (Rush Hour) – has been accused by at least six women of inappropriate sexual conduct.
According to The Los Angeles Times report, Ratner engaged in “a range of sexual harassment and misconduct that allegedly took place in private homes, on movie sets or at industry events” – as told by actresses Olivia Munn, Natasha Henstridge, Jaime Ray Newman, Katharine Towne, Eri Sasaki and Jorina King.
This Times’ reporting piggybacks on an earlier story by the paper into the allegations made against director, James Toback, who has been accused by more than 300 women over a span of decades.
Ratner’s attorney, Martin Singer, issued a statement denying the charges, stating, “I have represented Mr. Ratner for two decades, and no woman has ever made a claim against him for sexual misconduct or sexual harassment. Furthermore, no woman has ever requested or received any financial settlement from my client.”
