Following Pauley Perrette’s cryptic tweets about alleged ‘physical assault’ on the set of NCIS, CBS has issued an official statement! As you may already know, the actress has exited the show, and the reason has been subject to controversy.
A spokesperson for the network said: ‘Pauley Perrette had a wonderful run on NCIS and we’re all going to miss her. More than a year ago, Pauley came to us with a workplace concern. We took the matter seriously and worked with her to find a resolution. We’re committed to a safe work environment on all our shows.’
The actress previously took to social media to call out the fake reporting about her and also urge her followers to always ‘tell someone’ if they are being bullied or if they are in any other dangerous situation, alluding to the fact that she was a victim of such treatment as well while on NCIS.
‘I refused to go low, that is why I have never told publicly what happened. But there are tabloid articles out there that are telling total lies about me. If you believe them? Please leave me alone. You clearly do not know me. (Sorry guys, had to be said).’
In another post, she wrote: ‘Maybe I am wrong for not ‘spilling the beans’ Telling the story, THE TRUTH. I feel like I have to protect my crew, jobs and many people. But at what cost? I don’t know. Just know that I’m trying to do the right thing, but maybe silence isn’t the right thing about crime. I’m… Just…?’
Her final post seems to suggest she went through something terrible during her time on the show: ‘I have been supporting anti-bullying programs forever. But now I KNOW because it was ME! If it’s school or work, that you are required to go to? It’s horrifying. I left. Multiple Physical Assaults. I get it now. Stay safe. Nothing is worth your safety. Tell someone.’
