James Van Der Beek Was Sexually Harassed By ‘Older, Gay, Hollywood Executives’

The star of Dawson’s Creek, James Van Der Beek, has opened up about being a victim of sexual harassment by older, gay, Hollywood executives: “I’ve had my ass grabbed by older, powerful men, I’ve had them corner me in inappropriate sexual conversations when I was much younger…” he said on Twitter.

“I understand the unwarranted shame, powerlessness & inability to blow the whistle. There’s a power dynamic that feels impossible to overcome,” he said.

He continued: “For anyone judging the women who stayed silent, read this for perspective. Also for anyone brushing off harassment as ‘boys being boys’…What Weinstein is being accused of is criminal… What he’s admitted to is unacceptable — in any industry. I applaud everybody speaking out.”
