Wendy Williams Airs Video Of Morgan Freeman Making Disgusting Comments To Janet Mock And Another Female Journalist

The talk show host called him a "dirty old man."

Published May 29, 2018

Wendy Williams shared a few more details on the now widespread Morgan Freeman sexual assault scandal, and now there is more video footage to support claims of his allegedly unacceptable behavior.

During Tuesday morning's episode of her eponymous talk show, Williams dished a bit more on the scandal, starting out by calling the London Has Fallen star a "dirty old man" before airing some video footage republished by Entertainment Tonight.

In the clip, the Academy Award-winning actor can be seen asking two female reporters — Ashley Crossan and Janet Mock — some massively inappropriate questions during a press junket for the film.

In his exchange with Crossan, he first asked, "My goodness, are you married?" After she responded with "no," he continued to inquire, adding, "Fool around with older guys?"

His exchange with transgender activist, author and reporter Janet Mock was also deemed hugely inappropriate, with him initially telling her as she sat down, "I don't know how you all manage to do that all the time." After she asked if he was referencing her hair and makeup, he specified, "No. You got a dress that's halfway between your knee and your... hips, and you sit down right across from me and you cross your legs..."

Take a look at the clip, for yourself, below:

  1. After the initial story of Freeman's alleged sexual assault broke, he issued an apology to "anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected."
