Ben Vereen is the latest celebrity to be accused of sexual misconduct and unlike other stars, it seems as if the 71-year-old actor was more than aware of his actions. He took to Twitter to apologize for the 2015 incident on the set of the musical, Hair.

The allegations against Vereen include sexual groping, unwanted kisses, aggressive hugs, naked acting exercises, hot-tub encounters at his residence, and lewd comments about the accusers’ weight, sex appeal and personal lives.

As a result of the accusations, Broadway San Diego announced it is ending its association with the entertainer, effective immediately.
