Blackish star Anthony Anderson is the latest celebrity accused of sexual assault. In a report from The Blast, “an unidentified woman claimed he assaulted her more than a year ago after meeting Anderson at an event he hosted.” The 47-year-old’s rep Cindy Guagenti told USA Today, “It’s unfortunate that anyone can file a police report whether it is true or false. The authorities have not contacted Anthony or any of his representatives about this matter. Anthony unequivocally disputes the claim.”
The LAPD has confirmed the actor is under investigation, but the details are scarce. Anderson has been married to Alvina Stewart since 1995. They share two children, Nathan and Kyra.
So far there has been no word from ABC on how they plan to move forward with the allegations. Since the accusations against Harvey Weinstein, the #MeToo movement has grown tremendously and some of black Hollywood’s most famous faces, like Morgan Freeman, Russell Simmons and Tavis Smiley have unfortunately joined a club no one should be in.
TELL US: What do you think about the claims?
