The cast members and crew of The WB and CW series One Tree Hill have accused former show runner Mark Schwahn of sexual harassment.
Variety reports that stars Sophia Bush, Hilarie Burton and Bethany Joy Lenz, as well as 15 other women, wrote in a letter on Monday that they were “manipulated psychologically and emotionally” by Schwahn.
“Many of us were spoken to in ways that ran the spectrum from deeply upsetting, to traumatizing, to downright illegal,” they revealed. “And a few of us were put in positions where we felt physically unsafe.”
The letter came after Audrey Wauchope, a former writer on the series, accused an unidentified show runner of “unwanted touching” (and other things) on Twitter over the weekend.
