Morgan Spurlock Leaving Production Company After Sexual Misconduct Admission

Morgan Spurlock Leaving Production Company After Sexual Misconduct Admission”

In the post, Spurlock, who is best known for the Oscar-nominated documentary Super Size Me and for directing One Direction documentary film This Is Us, said he thought it was amusing but later realised his behaviour was demeaning.

Chilnick and Galkin said in a statement: "As of today, Morgan Spurlock will be stepping down effective immediately".

"I've come to understand after months of these revelations, that I am not some innocent bystander, I am also a part of the problem", Spurlock wrote in his confession on Twitter. To begin, he wrote, "I'm going to be more honest with you and myself".

Spurlock's publicist confirmed the authenticity of the post to CNN.

Spurlock has stepped down from the production company he co-founded after confessing to past sexual misconduct on Wednesday.

Spurlock then goes on to reveal that he settled a sexual harassment suit at his production company eight years ago.

"I paid for peace of mind". He later realized, "I had completely demeaned and belittled her". Who knows. But I do know I've talked enough in my life ...

The first instance he divulged took place in college, when he had a one-night sexual encounter with a girl that he thought was consensual but she later referred to as "rape".

Spurlock said the incident was not reported to the police but the woman named him as the person responsible in a writing class.

He said he "paid for her silence". "We will continue moving forward to tell the important story of the I Promise School". The two stopped having sex, and Spurlock tried comforting her. To make her feel better. "Something I thought was amusing at the time, but then realized I had completely demeaned and belittled her to a place of non-existence". "She believed she was raped".

Calling himself "someone who consistently hurts those closest to me", he wrote that "I have helped create a world of disrespect through my own actions".

"I can't blindly act as though I didn't somehow play a part in this", Spurlock wrote about the sexual harassment epidemic in Hollywood.

The documentary filmmaker says he posted the explosive statement in response to other celebrities being exposed for alleged sexual abuse.

But he has vowed to also be a "part of the solution" and to "do better" in future. By recognising and openly admitting what I've done to further this awful situation, I hope to empower the change within myself. I will be better.

The filmmaker behind the Oscar nominated documentary Super Size Me is no longer involved in Warrior Poets, reports TMZ.
