Morgan Spurlock Admits Past Sexual Misconduct 'I am Part of the Problem'

14 Décembre 2017

The 47-year-old filmmaker posted the confession online under the title "I am Part of the Problem" after witnessing the slew of sexual harassment claims triggered by the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

Super Size Me director Morgan Spurlock admitted to a history of sexual misconduct early Thursday, writing an online post in which he said he was "part of the problem". We took off our clothes.

'I didn't know what to do, ' he writes. I thought I was doing ok, I believed she was feeling better.

"I would call my female assistant "hot pants" or "sex pants" when I was yelling to her from the other side of the office", Spurlock wrote.

"So, when she made a decision to quit, she came to me and said if I didn't pay her a settlement, she would tell everyone", he wrote, adding that he "of course" paid her.

He mentioned that he once paid off an employee whom he would refer to as "hot trousers", and was "unfaithful to every wife and girlfriend I have ever had". I tried to comfort her. "She believed she was raped". I paid for her silence and cooperation. "Most of all, I paid so I could remain who I was", Spurlock recalled.

L'avocat de Salah Abdeslam demande le report du procès en Belgique
La fusillade de Fourest a eu lieu le 15 mars 2016, trois jours avant l'arrestation de Salah Abdeslam dans la capitale belge. Les audiences, qui devaient commencer lundi à Bruxelles, sont reportées à la demande de l'avocat belge Sven Mary .

"The only individual I have control over is me", he concluded. "So starting today, I'm going to be more honest with you and myself". Maybe that will be a start. He penned the 1,000 word letter that linked to his Twitter account that began, "As I sit around watching hero after hero, man after man, fall at the realization of their past indiscretions, I don't sit by and wonder "who will be next" I wonder, 'when will they come for me?'" "I'm finally ready to listen".

In a tweet after his blog post, Spurlock said he was "seeking help".

Spurlock is the executive producer of multiple unreleased documentaries, but of particular note is a TNT docu-series called "Who Run the World?" slated for release next year.

The series aims to "unpack the most divisive and complicated issues facing women today, from the policing of their bodies and judgments of their family planning choices, to the micro-aggressions they face in the media, the workplace and everyday life", according to a press release.

Spurlock was also the executive producer of the documentary series The Trade, about the opioid epidemic, which is set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January and debut in February on Showtime.
