In a post-Harvey Weinstein world, every day seems to bring another story about assault, harassment, groping and other accounts of sexual misconduct.
Backstreet Boy Nick Carter has been accused of sexual assault, and Pixar co-founder John Lasseter has taken a leave of absence after reports that he frequently crosses the line with employees by being too touchy-feely, kissing women on the mouth and making inappropriate comments.
On today’s show, Doc caught up on the latest allegations of sexual misconduct by famous names.
Melissa Schuman, a singer who was part of the 2000s girl group Dream, described her memory of being raped by Carter in his apartment when she was 18 and he was 22.
“I told my therapist. I told my family. I told my friends,” Schuman wrote on her blog. “I have a plethora of people who can attest that I eventually became open vocal about my experience, I’ve just never had the platform to come out publicly.”
