Ben Vereen Accused of Sexual Misconduct


Actor Ben Vereen accused of sexually harassing actresses during auditions...

From The NY Daily News
When Ben Vereen held auditions for “Hair” at a community theatre in Florida in 2015, the Tony winner said he wanted to break new ground with the rock musical.
But in a sickening twist, several young actresses cast in the show claim the Broadway legend’s sexually abusive behavior nearly broke them.
The women — part of the Venice Theatre production outside of Tampa — say Vereen forced unwanted kisses, hugged them aggressively, stripped naked during an acting exercise and made degrading comments about their weight, sex appeal and personal lives.
Two of the actresses told the Daily News that Vereen lured them to his Florida rental home on separate occasions in September 2015 under the guise of “private rehearsals.” Then he pressed his erect penis into their legs without warning.
In a lengthy statement to the Daily News Thursday, Vereen did not deny the accusations.
“I would like to apologize directly to the female cast members of the musical ‘Hair’ for my inappropriate conduct when I directed the production in 2015,” he said.

Maybe this year more men will start thinking with their big brain instead of letting their little brain do the thinking for them!

Ole uncle “Spiritual Enforcer” Ben. I’ll never understand why men are soooo willing to lose everything for sexual fantasies. Maybe I’m missing something?

This is getting out of control now. Just because someone is accused doesn't make it true.

Plus, we all now Ben likes to lick on mens bawls with his mouf.
