Afton Williamson Outs Demetrius Grosse


This week 'The Rookie' co-star Alfton Williamson announced she would not be back for season 2 because she had been racially abused and sexually harassed on set with no consequences for the perpetrators [click here if you missed that].

Afton names and shames her attackers...

In a post on Instagram Afton thanks her fans for their support and outs married recurring co-star, Demetrius Grosse, for sexually harassing her and Hair Department Head Sally Nicole Ciganovich for racial discrimination and sexual assault.

oh snitch. you couldn't put a picture up of the woman who she claims sexually assaulted her? just the black man huh? i mean there should be pictures of both, not just one of them.

@11:27 Why must sexual harassment and assault against black women turn into a racial issue where the black man becomes the victim?

There are 2 sides to every story, remember that. Just because this woman says she was mistreated doesnt mean she actually was. I guess yall didnt learn anything from Jussie.....

@11:42 Jussie was a liar to start off so I didn't need to learn anything from him (I knew he was lying), but I did learn from Tiffany Boone and Jason Mitchell. Although Tiffany complained about harassment on the set of The Chi nothing was done until he pulled the same shyt on the set of a practically all white Netflix romcom cast called Desperados. Usually when you see smoke there's fire. I would hope this sister is not making up sexual harassment and racial discrimination lies.

@11:27 It was probably just easier to get a picture of him, being that he is an actor.
Does linkedin have head shots?

well i googled her and i found a picture. i just hate how it's always just the black man who has to have his picture out there. as a black woman, i support all abusers getting outed. i want pictures and names of everyone...not just the black men.

I feel for her but she may never work in that town again. It's not right but that's Hollywierd.

The age of Aquarius is the age of being expose for that which was previously hidden. You would think these shows would have iron clad clause against sexual harassment in the work place. Hollyweird is run by pedophiles who prey on those they deem vulnerable.

This girl is no Tiffany Boone, ask someone who worked on the set with Afton and then wait for the facts. If anyone wants to see how lies can destroy a person's life, watch The Brian Banks movie this weekend. That woman lied on Brian, sent him to prison, sued the school district and received 2 million dollars. She later gleefully admitted she lied about the whole thing.

I don't know what happened in Afton's story but I would encourage everyone to wait for the facts. There's always more to a story and I want to hear both sides because I wasn't there to witness any of it.

Wow, just fucking wow. A black woman says that she was harassed and everyone assumes that she is lying. When it comes down to a black man versus a black woman, everyone would rather protect the black male and question the black female's credibility.

This is the same mindset used against black girls who are raped, harassed, molested or abused in any way. The first thing everyone does is doubt her and protect him.

It's taken almost 30 years for anyone to believe R. Kelley's victims. I guess you all will need another 50 years to believe this young woman.

^^^^^^ Were YOU there??? What happened to innocent until proven guilty?? So I am supposed to automatically believe her because she is Black??? Because that seems like the only reason you have as to why we should be siding with her. Why cant we just remain NEUTRAL until more details are released?? You hear that? Its called CRITICAL THINKING. Look it up.

Something simply isn't adding up. A "guest star" without any real celebrity was able to run her off when she is one of the main stars on the show? In an age of MeToo she didn't go to human resource, she told someone else to go for her????? Something must be missing from the story because guest stars are not even around like that. I'm not saying he didn't harass her, but I would have filed my own complaint. Maybe she wanted out of her contract? A man being attracted to a woman isn't harassment and so I wonder what he did??? Need more details. He does have a type because his wife favors her. I think there is more to the story. I don't know what's up with the hair department when you can slap on a wig. Too many details are missing and if you are going to name names then give details.

Women are routinely harassed and marginalized and its evil but what I can't figure out is why she trusted another person to report the harassment to HR when she is an adult? If the Executive Producer is bullying you, hair department discriminating and sexually harassing you, and a guest star is abusing you too, why not go to HR privately ? Why entrust your story to the set who works for the EP???? Maybe she's knew to the system? It may just be a shitty environment.

I think the Hair stylist who is a cute white girl probably made some remarks about Black hair smelling like a furnace.

Ole Boy was probably being flirty , not thst he would go there

No one is saying Afton is lying but what most us are saying, as with any rational person, we would like to simply examine all the evidence. I don't believe anyone should automatically believe anything anyone says without evidence or proof. What you're trying to do is incite emotions by implying that we should assume what she's saying is true by pitting black woman against black woman, which is irresponsible and manipulative. No one is going to force me into believing something by protesting I don't love myself or my fellow black sisterhood. That will never happen because I have my own brain and I can certainly think for myself.

Afton should be sitting in her attorney's office instead of running to social media. That's how these types of problems are solved.

People are always quick to want to accuse black women of lying about sexual assault and harassment. Why the hell would she quit her job if something wasn't happening on the set?
