Morgan Freeman’s lawyer has some demands for CNN after the news site published a report about eight women accusing the famed actor of sexual misconduct.
“At a minimum, CNN immediately needs to issue a retraction and apologize to Mr. Freeman through the same channels, and with the same level of attention, that it used to unjustly attack him on May 24,” reads the 10-page letter from attorney Robert M. Schwartz, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. “CNN also needs to retract the portions of the story that concern Lori McCreary and apologize to her for defaming and injuring her.”
The letter went on to address the alleged victims named in the report including CNN’s entertainment reporter, Chloe Melas. It states that Melas had “no reasonable basis to have interpreted what Mr. Freeman said or did at the Going In Style interview last year as having been directed at her or as any form of harassment.”
