Add Stan Lee to the list of celebrities getting in trouble for awxual Misconduct
Stan Lee I don't believe did it
The wave of #MeToo and #TimesUp movements against sexual misconduct in entertainment has washed over a new industry icon: Stan Lee, co-creator of Marvel Comics.
As much as this headline will hurt a lot of geek culture fans, it is nonetheless true: multiple women have come forward to accuse the ninety-five-year-old Lee of sexual misconduct, with the comic book guru making a statement through his legal team that the accusations are "categorically" false.
As Daily Mail reports, Lee has been accused of the following by in-house nurses working at his West Hollywood home:
Stan Lee is accused of sex abuse by a nursing company employed to care for him (for upwards of $1,000/day), and stopped working with him after a string of complaints. Young female nurses complained he demanded oral sex from them, groped them, and walked around naked. Lee's lawyers have sent a cease and desist letter to the company which employs the women, accusing it of defaming Lee. Here's the official statement from Stan Lee by way of his lawyer, Tom Lallas:
"Mr. Lee categorically denies these false and despicable allegations and he fully intends to fight to protect his stellar good name and impeccable character.
He is 95, anyone that's dealt with the elderly know anything can happen I know I saw enough weird things when father was going before he died. Hell everytime the nurse came to give him a sponge bath something lewd was said, and the nurse would just ignore him, not that it makes it right or wrong, but again elderly people.
I have family members that work in nursing homes, and they got some stories to tell..., but unless people come out from earlier in his life to show a pattern of this behavior from him, I am gonna guess that these people saw a chance to cash in. Guess we will see as the story unfolds.
