Testifying before a congressional committee that was formed to consider legislation to eliminate forced arbitration clauses in employment, consumer, and civil rights cases, she shared her arbitration story-- and being fired in silence.
"I suffered near constant sexual harassment from my co-star. This was beyond anything I had experienced in my 30-year career."
She was referred to as "legs", and Weatherly would "smell her and leeringly look her up and down." Weatherly also told her that he and his buddy wanted to have a threesome with her. But if that weren't disturbing enough. This:
"Off script in front of about a hundred crew members and cast members, he once said that he would take me to his 'rape van' and use lube and long phallic things on me, and take me over his knee and spank me like a little girl."
What in the actual f*ck? When is it ever funny or acceptable or cool to joke about rape? It's funny to force a human being to do things they don't want to do, and to damage one's psyche for ever?
This anal hair then went to the head of CBS Studios and told him that Eliza had a "humor deficit" and didn't want her on the show. And he got his way.
When is the Boys Club going to be dissolved. What's sad is that this occurs in many workplaces. I know this for a fact. And arbitration is in just about in every entertainment contract. I also know this for a fact. So glad she stood up for herself, despite the consequences. I've been there, too.
Michael Weatherly is a complete POS who should be castrated, slapped with his micro ween, then set ablaze. At minimum. And this f*ck towel has daughters. I guess he'd be okay with his daughters being treated like this, right? Hope they don't encounter someone's "rape van."
