Somethings tells me there is more than one side of this story...

I have read more than a few stories about alleged cases of racism and sexism in that bastion of liberalism known as Hollywood.

Me too. Turns out 99% of it comes from the Republicans in Hollywood.

I have read more than a few stories about alleged cases of racism and sexism in that bastion of liberalism known as Hollywood.

Well known liberals like Clint Eastwood, Gary Sinise, John Malkovich, Kelsey Grammar, Kurt Russell, Vince Vaughn, etc?

Racism and sexism are endemic and not confined to any one area, be it political or artistic or religious.

I have enjoyed her character. I hope this issue is resolved and that she continues on the show.

Whats happened to the #metoo movement? Isn't that supposed to stop sexual harassment? What was all the fuss about if people have to quit because of unwanted advances.

Wow, all of that happened and yet not a single police report or lawsuit.

I really like this show and I'm looking forward to it coming back. Her character was pretty important to the story, being Fillion's training officer, it will be disappointing to see her go.

I want to give her the benefit of the doubt, but I have to admit that her claims of being harassed from pretty much everyone, even the hairdresser, and not a single person ever did anything about it seems a bit far fetched, especially in this age of #metoo. You would think the showrunners would simply be too scared to ignore it.

99.99% of sexual assault claims are valid. However there have been a very few people trying to get in on the act and their claims don't fly. Remember the allegations of the late ex-Pres. George Bush being a butt-slapper. That didn't fly and I didn't think it would.

And then there's that one actor who staged a racist/homophobic attack in Chicago. People like that make it all look bad. Still, this woman's claims need to be looked at - but if it turns out she is fibbing she shall have the book thrown at her.
