Famous tv star was just fired from two different companies after sexual misconduct allegations.
It is being reported that both CBS News and PBS are firing the infamous Charlie Rose. Apparently he is being fired after eight women are accusing him of sexual misconduct.
This has been an epidemic in Hollywood and although it’s a good thing many are losing their jobs. Women continue to come out of the woodworks. They are stating that they are being or have been sexually assaulted by several different powerful and famous men.
It has come from some of the most unexpected people and it is heartbreaking. Many thought that Charlie Rose was a man of integrity but that clearly wasn’t the case here.
CBS News President released a statement about the termination of Rose. It is heartbreaking and shocking. Fans and friends everywhere have expressed their disappointment.
“Despite Charlie’s important journalist contribution to our news division. There is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace-a supportive environment where people feel they can do their best work.” Said CBS News President David Rhodes in a memo.
“We need to be such a place. I’m deeply disappointed and angry that people were victimized. And that even people not connected with these events could see their hard work undermined.”
Shortly after CBS News released their statement about firing PBS moved forward in terminating him as well. PBS stated that they want their workplace to be a safe place where people are treated with dignity and respect.
Unfortunately, Charlie Rose could no longer create an environment like that.
“In light of yesterday’s revelations, PBS has terminated its relationship with Charlie Rose and cancelled distribution of his programs. PBS expects all the producers we work with to provide a workplace where people feel safe. And are being treated with dignity and respect.”
This is so sad.
