16 women have spoken to CNN, accusing Morgan Freeman of sexual harassment and inappropriate behaviour.

Exactly half of the women have accused the movie star of sexual harassment, while others described what they termed “inappropriate behaviour.

The accusations range from unwanted comments to unwanted touching and him trying to lift a woman’s skirt up.

A young production assistant who worked with him on the comedy “Going in Style” told CNN the actor “kept trying to lift up my skirt and asking if I was wearing underwear.”

He would try to lift it, she said, and she would move away. This would repeat itself, she said, until his co-star Alan Arkin asked that he stopped. She said: “Alan made a comment telling him to stop. Morgan got freaked out and didn’t know what to say.”

A senior member of the production staff of the movie “Now You See Me” also reported that she was sexually harassed by the actor. She said:

He did comment on our bodies… We knew that if he was coming by … not to wear any top that would show our breasts, not to wear anything that would show our bottoms, meaning not wearing clothes that [were] fitted.

A CNN reporter Chloe Melas also reported stories of inappropriate behaviour.

She had been 6 months pregnant when she interviewed him at a press junket for “Going in Style,” and in a room full of people, in front of his co-stars, he shook her hand, looked her up and down, and telling her in more than once, in different variations: “I wish I was there.”

He also told her “You are ripe.”

    Oh no! Not him please….I’m all about speaking your truth but the way Hollywood is making this whole calling out movement lose credibility is really disappointing.

    Look you guys…we may like thier talents…but it doesnt make them exempt from bad behaviour.

    Dont comment on my body, don’t touch me……its NOT HARD TO FOLLOW THIS RULE.

    And yes if there are women misbehaving like this they should equally be reprimanded.

    But lets be honest how many times have you see women touching a man inappropraitely and making lurid comments….statistics shows its MOSTLY men,

    I am not excusing Morgan’s bad behaviour but are you telling me that the white veterans like Tom Cruise, Bruce Willis and co have NEVER done anything “sexually inappropriate”? Why are the black legends being targeted?

      If their hands are clean, they’ll have nothing to fear.

      This situation has absolutely nothing to do with been black or white, check out today’s story on Harvey Weinstein, he’s very white and by the end of today might be going to jail or even losing the rest of all he owns, karma is bitch, I love Morgan and Cosby but been a star shouldn’t be the reason you can be lech, I wish Nigeria was an accountable country, a lot of people, male/female alike would spend the rest of their days in jail!! Karma no get respect o!!!!

    Last i checked HARVEY WEINSTEIN is a WHITE man.
    Race shouldnt even be an issue here. You cross the line ….i dont care if youre black like me,,,if you like be my brother sef….Own up and seek forgiveness (Morgan Freeman has now apologised).

    If no one has come out to accuse Tom Cruise and Bruce Willis then they are innocent till further notice.
