Multiple women have stepped forward to accuse Morgan Freeman of inappropriate behavior on set, during press junkets and at his production company Revelations Entertainment. CNN, which broke the story, thus far has interviewed 16 people about Freeman as part of an investigation and revealed that Revelations co-founder Lori McCreary allegedly witnessed one such incident. Freeman yesterday issued this statement: “Anyone who knows me or has worked with me knows I am not someone who would intentionally offend or knowingly make anyone feel uneasy.  I apologize to anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected – that was never my intent.” Dominoes already are starting to fall. Vancouver’s transit authority TransLink is “pausing” ad announcements featuring Freeman’s voice.

As expected, Debra Lee is stepping down from her position as chairman and CEO of BET Networks, effective Monday, May 28. Lee, who began her career with the company as its first VP and general counsel in 1986, was elevated to president/COO in 1996 and rose to her current position in 2005. Among top lines of her career are scripted series The Game, which in 2014 debuted as the most-watched sitcom premiere in cable TV history; the hit 2017 miniseries The New Edition Story; and the elevation of The BET Awards. She also launched Leading Women Defined, an annual conference where notable African American women, including former First Lady Michelle Obama, Venus Williams and Issa Rae, gathered each year for insightful debates and conversations. “I could not be prouder of the enormous amount of talent and creativity at BET Networks today and I will always be BET’s number one fan, rooting for each and every one of you as you continue to break barriers and share your authenticity with the world,” Lee said in a statement.
