Ilana Glazer joined the #MeToo movement, saying she fired "Broad City" staffers after being sexually harassed
Like America Ferrera, Evan Rachel Wood, Viola Davis, and countless other women sharing their own accounts of sexual harassment and assault, Ilana Glazer joined the chorus of voices in the #MeToo movement on social media. The Broad City star and co-creator revealed she even had to fire some of her staff in the past for such instances of misconduct.
“I was asked, ‘Are you sure?’” she continued. “Hm. Okay yeah lemme think a sec — YEAH I’M F–ING SURE. [Because] getting sexually harassed seems to be a constant, but having the opportunity to do something about it is rare.”
Glazer gave a “big queenly thanks” to Davis and Transparent actress Trace Lysette for posting about #MeToo and giving her the strength to share her own story.
The #MeToo movement took off this past week in the wake of Harvey Weinstein’s history of alleged sexual harassment and assault as a way for people to get a sense of the magnitude of the issue.
