Following a story in The Washington Post in which eight women accused now-fired CBS News and PBS personality Charlie Rose of sexual impropriety, other women are coming forward with allegations against Rose.
In the original story, Rose was accused of a variety of inappropriate behaviors including exposing himself and groping the women’s rear ends, breasts and genitals without permission.
“Now, three additional women have come forward, preferring to stay anonymous but who have been identified as employees at CBS, CBS News’ evening news first reported,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“While two of the women said they weren’t ready to publicly detail their claims against Rose, a third woman alleges Rose whispered a sexual innuendo while touching her inappropriately at a work-related event,” THR adds.
The report also notes: “The three CBS employees allege Rose’s unwanted sexual advances continued after 2011, later than had been reported in the Post and during his time at CBS News.”
Rose was fired Tuesday by CBS, while PBS announced it would no longer distribute the interview show “Charlie Rose.”
