As Twitchy told you, CNN reported that actor Morgan Freeman has been accused of “inappropriate behavior” by eight women. Following the report, Freeman released a statement that clears things up. Or … not:

"Anyone who knows me or has worked with me knows I am not someone who would intentionally offend or knowingly make anyone feel uneasy. I apologize to anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected — that was never my intent." — Morgan Freeman response to CNN report

Morgan Freeman says he would never "intentionally offend or knowingly make anyone feel uneasy.” He is not denying any part of CNN reporting — just says if he made anyone uncomfortable, it wasn’t intentional > https://t.co/Rs3zphHqJz

Yeah … “I apologize if you were offended” is usually not the best way to go in these cases. Freeman may not be doing himself any favors here.
So did you do it or….?

For a lot of people, coupled with the lack of a clear denial, it’s evidence of Freeman’s guilt:

That's basically an admission of guilt

This basically confirms to me that Freeman's guilty.

One way or another, the truth usually comes out. Guess we’ll just have to stay tuned.
