6 months ago

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Brothers has severed all ties with director and producer Brett Ratner in light of the recent sexual harassment and assault accusations six women have made against him, including actress Olivia Munn. The LA Times reported that Munn visited the set of After The Sunset, a film Ratner directed back in 2004. 

Munn was still an aspiring actress, and when she delivered him a meal, he masturbated in front of her.

The LA Times also detailed a rape accusation Melanie Kohler made against Ratner. Kolhler stated:

[Ratner] preyed on me as a drunk girl [and] forced himself upon me ... Brett Ratner raped me.

In response, Ratner has sued Kohler for defamation.

Ratner released a statement, saying:

In light of the allegations being made, I am choosing to personally step away from all Warner Bros.-related activities. I don’t want to have any possible negative impact to the studio until these personal issues are resolved.

Some people on Twitter thought Ratner was finally getting his comeuppance: 

Others had clapbacks for those who questioned why the accusers didn't go to the police right away:

Even celebrity personality Perez Hilton got in on this one:
