Ryan released a statement released a statement on November 17th regarding an allegation made by a former wardrobe stylist who he worked with several years ago when he was working at E! News.
“Recently, someone that worked as a wardrobe stylist for me nearly a decade ago at E! News, came forward with a complaint suggesting I behaved inappropriately toward her. If I made her feel anything but respected, I am truly sorry.”
“I dispute these reckless allegations and I plan to cooperate with any corporate inquiries that may result. I treat all my colleagues with kindness, dignity, and understanding, as this is a principle that’s core to who I am. Throughout my 25 years in the entertainment industry, the majority of my co-workers have been women, and I’ve endeavored to foster a positive work environment of mutual respect and courtesy, as that’s how I believe it should be.”
“I’m distraught that anyone or any situation would call that into question. I’m proud of my workplace reputation, and believe my track record will speak for itself. I’m an advocate for women. I will continue to support their voices.”
Okay, this one is a shocker. I find it difficult to picture. And while I am supportive of people coming forward to expose sexual harassment or sexual abuse, it’s really becoming a lot to deal with every single day.
What do you think of this one?
