Illana Glazer opens up about firing people because of sexual harassment”

In the wake of Hollywood's Harvey Weinstein scandal, involving dozens of women accusing the film producer of sexual harassment and assault, "Broad City" creator Ilana Glazer is speaking out.

It's only been two days since the hashtag #MeToo began spreading, but since then it's inspired thousands of women (and some men) to take to their social media accounts and discuss the sexual harassment or assault they have encountered in their lifetime. Glazer said that one sexual harassment experience in particular, with a doctor in New York City, led to her filing a complaint.

Ilana, 30, told her fans and followers that she is no stranger to the behaviour which acted as a catalyse for the #MeToo campaign, writing: "I've been sexually harassed countless times; in middle school, in high school - by more teachers than students". At work as a waitress, at work as a showrunner!

She added that she "fired a couple of dudes" on Broad City, "one background actor and one sound guy".

Sadly, those incidents weren't the only ones Glazer faced as she also had to file a complaint against a "creepyass" doctor previous year. "Same same same-I was a woman in both places". A 2003 study found that 75% of employees (of any gender) who reported their sexual harassment were retaliated against in the workplace.


Reflecting on these instances, she told fans: "I was asked 'Are you sure?: Hm, okay yeah lemme think a sec - YEAH I'M F*CKING SURE".
