Morgan Spurlock revealed that he has decided to leave the production company he created. According to a representative speaking with E! News, Spurlock resigned as CEO of Warrior Poets.
Jeremy Chilnick and Matthew Galkin, who work as co-owners, said to E! News in a document they have always supported their company, and will hold the reigns after Spurlock leaves.
The partners added they would lead the organization in production, distribution, and creation. The news of Morgan’s resignation comes just a few days after he admitted he was guilty of misconduct in the past.
In a statement released through Twitter, Morgan revealed that a girl in college accused him of raping her and he also harassed one of his assistants in the past.
The documentarian claimed he thought it was funny at the time, but Morgan has come to realize that he demeaned her to the point of “non-existence.”
Spurlock said he would yell at her from a distance comments such as “hot pants,” and “sex pants,” and when she finally quit, she asked him for a settlement, to which he agreed. The Super Size Me creator said the last thing he wanted was to have women talk about these things in an open forum.
Furthermore, Spurlock, in his letter, revealed past sexual abuse, alcohol problems, infidelity, and much more. Celebrity Insider reported yesterday that Morgan is just one of many men to be accused of misconduct. However, Spurlock is one of the first ones to state what he has done preemptively. Alec Baldwin also said he treated women poorly and in a sexist manner.
