Actress Suzanne Somers defended accused sexual harasser Morgan Freeman by claiming he was a “big flirt” and expressed concerns about the #MeToo movement, which opposes sexual harassment and abuse, on July 3.
Freeman has been accused of sexual misconduct by eight women, including his former production partner.
Somers made her comments on the Fox News show “The Ingraham Angle,” whose host Laura Ingraham has a history of attacking teen shooting survivors from Parkland, Florida:
Well, this probably won’t be real popular, but I think that women- I totally understand the Weinstein and Bill Cosby, that’s like- of course. But you know, like Morgan Freeman is a big flirt. I know him really well. He sees you and he’ll like your dress and he’ll like your hair, and he’ll like a lot of things.
Somers said she hoped the “seduction” and “flirting” that goes on in Hollywood doesn’t stop:
I hope the dance doesn’t stop. It’s seduction. It’s flirting. All those things are really fun. So I hope there’s a way we can find a nice medium with that.
