Director Morgan Spurlock says he is ‘part of the problem’ of sexual misconduct

Morgan Spurlock submitted a Hollywood confessional Wednesday, revealing his own tales of sexual misconduct in the workplace — and outside of it.         

The “Super Size Me” documentarian, who recently sold his sequel “Holy Chicken!” to YouTube Red for $3.5 million, said that as he watches "hero after hero, man after man, fall at the realization of their past indiscretions, I don’t sit by and wonder 'who will be next?' I wonder, 'when will they come for me?' "         

That fear prompted Spurlock, 47, to tell all in a lengthy Twitter post.

"I’m sure I’m not alone in this thought, but I can’t blindly act as though I didn’t somehow play a part in this, and if I’m going (to) truly represent myself as someone who has built a career on finding the truth, then it’s time for me to be truthful as well," he wrote. "I am part of the problem."          

In his post, Spurlock details:

  • A sexual encounter in college that ended with his female partner claiming rape
  • Calling a former female employee "hot pants" and "sex pants" in the office and paying her a settlement when she quit
  • Having been "unfaithful to every wife and girlfriend I have ever had" 
  • That he started drinking at 13 and hasn't been sober "for more than a week in 30 years"

Some on Twitter were skeptical of Spurlock’s motives.

Others gave him kudos.
