Charlie Rose

Charlie Rose, 75, was fired by CBS on November 21 after sexual harassment claims were made by multiple women. The longtime U.S. television talk show host, with stints at CBS This Morning and 60 Minutes, first faced public accusations in a November 20 story by the Washington Post where eight women (three spoke on the record) accused Rose of making sexually inappropriate phone calls, exposing himself and groping them without their consent. The alleged encounters took place between the late 1990s to 2011 and involved women ranging from the age of 21 to 37, according to the Washington Post. The women were either employees or aspiring to be staffers at Rose’s self-titled PBS show, Charlie Rose. The journalist responded to the allegations on Twitter with a statement that says the following: “It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my behaviour.” He admits he “behavely insensitively at times,” but does not believe all of the allegations are accurate. Rose adds he thought he was pursuing “shared feelings,” but now realizes he was mistaken. In a company statement, CBS called the allegations “extremely disturbing and intolerable behaviour.” No new response has been issued by Rose since CBS decided to let him go. Photo from Getty Images.

WARNING: The details in this article are graphic in nature. Readers’ discretion is advised. 

The sexual harassment claims involving some of the biggest names in entertainment are mounting as more and more people are speaking out.

The allegations are sending shockwaves across social media, where the #MeToo campaign has made headlines worldwide.

If it seems like there’s a new revelation every day, it’s probably because there is one. Not all of them include famous movie actors and producers, but that’s where the tidal wave began.

Since accusations were levied against powerful film executive Harvey Weinstein in October 2017, scores of women and some men have come forward with claims of their own.

This photo gallery details the claims and responses of those facing sexual assault accusations in the past month, including Weinstein, Ben Affleck, James Toback, Kevin Spacey, Dustin Hoffman, Jeremy Piven, Brett Ratner, George Takei, Ed Westwick, Steven Seagal, Louis C.K., Jeffrey Tambor, Sylvester Stallone, Al Franken, Ryan Seacrest, Russell Simmons, Charlie Rose, Nick Carter, Matt Lauer, Geraldo Rivera, Danny Masterson, Mario Batali, Larry King, Michael Douglas, James Franco and Morgan Freeman.

This article only mentions allegations made against high-profile personalities in the entertainment industry, and does not mention others who have been accused of sexual misconduct since the #MeToo campaign went viral starting in the final months of 2017.

None of the allegations made against any of these figures have been proven in court. In some cases, the claims being made are being investigated by law enforcement.
