After the allegations against Harvey Weinstein came to light, many survivors of sexual assault and harassment have come forward, outing powerful men across industries. In what seems like a watershed moment against sexual misconduct, these men are being named and held accountable.
Here are the famous men who have been accused of sexual misconduct in the wake of Weinstein’s case.
1. Sylvester Stallone
Number of alleged victims: 1 woman
Sylvester Stallone denies claims that he forced a 16-year-old girl to perform oral sex on him while his bodyguard raped her in a Las Vegas hotel room. The allegations surfaced from a police report filed by the girl in the late ’80s while Stallone filmed Over the Top. But Stallone’s spokesperson said, “This is a ridiculous, categorically false story.”
According to the article, the girl was introduced to Stallone by his co-star, David Mendenhall. However, Mendenhall told TMZ, “It’s completely false that I introduced a 16-year-old female stranger to Mr. Stallone near an elevator in the Hilton … The only people I introduced to Mr. Stallone were my relatives who visited me on the set.”
