A Number Of Michael Weatherly’s Female Co-Workers Have Come To His Defense
Since the suits at CBS have started digging through their own trash in the wake of the multiple allegations of sexual misconduct against ex-boss man Les Moonves, all sorts of unsavory rot has been brought to the light. Last week we learned that the network paid Eliza Dushku a $9.5 million settlement after enduring onset sexual harassment from her Bull co-worker Michael Weatherly. Besides there being video evidence of the harassment, Michael maintained that it was all in fun, implying that Eliza was just an uptight no-funick who couldn’t take a joke. But not all ladies are like that! A number of Michael’s female friends, including former NCIS co-workers, Pauley Perrette and Sasha Alexander, have taken to twitter to offer their support.
Despite the fact that her own departure from CBS was mired in allegations of physical assault and accusations that she was being silenced by the “publicity machine”, Pauley apparently doesn’t mind a hilarious rape joke now and again.
This man… I love, respect, trust, and I KNOW. TWO decades of friendship and respect. The best. I love you @M_Weatherly Always and forever. pic.twitter.com/654ATa83w4

Sasha is another super cool lady who gets humor and thinks Michael’s jokes are very hilarious.

Michael’s Bull co-star Geneva Carr would also like it to be known that she is fine with whatever kind of jokes cost a network almost $10 million.

And another NCIS alum, Lauren Holly, was also willing to lend her voice in support of Michael.
Yeah, @sashaalexander , I was in those same trenches. And, yeah, @PauleyP , I too have much ❤️ for @M_Weatherly (and both of you)
Hey @koblin , surely you’re not done. https://t.co/fVqIXaYsNR

Why, it’s almost as there was some kind of, I don’t know… publicity machine at work here. Oh shucks, I’ll probably just being overly sensitive. There’s no way CBS would allow anybody to leverage their power to minimize damage. Not squeaky clean, unimpeachable CBS!
