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.
