The Dynasty star said, “I’m not worried about that. I think it is unfortunate that people can be canceled for holding opinions that are the opposite of what is currently in vogue.
“It’s just closing a debate, closing interesting conversations. Why should everyone treat everything the same? It’s actually very boring. “
Joan also remembered how she treated “predatory” men in her early years in the film industry, decades before the “Me Too” movement emerged.

“I started my business at the age of 16, and it started then. I handled it by laughing a lot. Men hate it when you laugh at them. “
After her fourth accusation of unwanted sexual harassment, Chris said during a podcast, “Who knows what he did?

Chris vehemently denied claims that he raped and raped two women, although he admitted that he had “consensual meetings” with them.
Both of these events are believed to have taken place while he was in a relationship with his wife, Tara Wilson.
He was fired from the CBS drama series The Equalizer after charges were brought against him.
