TIME’S UP: “There Should Be No Comeback for Brett Ratner”
Entertainment, Safety, Survivors
In November 2017, seven women accused Hollywood filmmaker Brett Ratner of sexual harassment and misconduct, leading Warner Bros to cut off ties with Ratner. In response to news reports that Ratner has signed up to direct a new movie about Milli Vanilli, Tina Tchen, president and CEO of TIME’S UP Foundation, released the following statement:
“TIME’S UP was born out of the national reckoning on workplace sexual harassment. Our movement is a product of countless courageous acts by many survivors, including those who spoke out about what they endured at the hands of Brett Ratner.
“Not only did Ratner never acknowledge or apologize for the harm he caused, but he also filed lawsuits in an attempt to silence the voices of survivors who came forward – a tactic right out of the predator’s playbook. You don’t get to go away for a couple years and then resurface and act like nothing happened. We have not – and will not – forget. And Millennium Media shouldn’t either. There should be no comeback. #wewontforgetbrett”
