Molly Shannon Claims she Was Sexually Harassed by Gary Coleman

After actor Gary Coleman died from a closed head injury in 2010 the wife he divorced two years prior exploited his death for financial gain [click here here and here if you missed that]. 

Gary is still being exploited...

Shannon said that she was "trying to be polite" toward Coleman, pointing out that she was "a virgin" at the time of the incident. But she told Stern Coleman continued to become more aggressive.
"He was relentless," she continued. "Then, he was like trying to kiss me and get on top and I was like, 'No, Gary. Stop.' So, I push him off. Then, I would get off the bed. Then, he would bounce on the bed. Jump, jump, jump. And wrap himself around me. Then, I would fling him off. And then he got on top of me. I guess because of his size I didn't feel physically threatened. But ... it was going on and on. Repeating. I would throw him off, he would get back on."
Shannon continued, "... And then finally, I throw him off. I was really getting out of breath because it was athletic and aerobic." "He grabs me onto my leg and I was like [trying to] kick him off," she said. "And then, I go lock myself in the bathroom and then he sticks his hands under the door. And he's like, 'I can see you."
Shannon says she eventually "sprinted out" of the room, telling her agent on her way out to "watch" Coleman better. "I wish I could have stood up for myself more," she added.
