Suzanne Somers Says Morgan Freeman Isn't a Sexual Harasser, Just a 'Big Flirt'

Instead of just keeping her mouth shut, Suzanne Somers decided to do the opposite on Fox’s The Ingraham Angle on Tuesday, passing off the many sexual harassment allegations against Morgan Freeman as nothing more than him being “a big flirt.”

“Well, this probably won’t be real popular,” she began, which is a surefire way to know when you should stop talking. Instead of that, she continued:

“I think that women…I totally understand the Weinstein and Bill Cosby, that’s like, of course. But you know, like Morgan Freeman’s a big flirt. I know him really well. He sees you and he’ll like your dress and he’ll like your hair, and he’ll like a lot of things.”

“I hope the dance doesn’t stop. It’s seduction. It’s flirting. All those things are really fun. So I hope there’s a way we can find a nice medium with that.”


News of Freemans’ misconduct was first reported by CNN in May, in which several women accused the actor of unwanted touching and making lewd comments. He apologized, which read pretty thin after he couched it in a denial that he created “unsafe work environments.” If lifting up a production assistant’s dress to find out whether she was wearing underwear isn’t creating an unsafe work environment, literally what is?

Anyway, it’s really great that Suzanne Somers has had so much fun.

Here’s the allegation that I keep coming back to:

In one incident, she said, Freeman “kept trying to lift up my skirt and asking if I was wearing underwear.” He never successfully lifted her skirt, she said — he would touch it and try to lift it, she would move away, and then he’d try again.”

That’s not flirting.
