"In light of director Morgan Spurlock's admission to a history of sexual misconduct, SpringHill Entertainment - LeBron James' production company - has cut ties with Spurlock on the release of a planned docu-series focusing on the opening of James' I Promise School in Akron, OH in the fall of 2018". He has produced dozens of other documentaries and TV shows and completed a sequel to "Super Size Me" this year.

Jeremy Chilnick, co-founder of the company, Warrior Poets, and partner Matthew Galkin, issued a statement saying, "On behalf of Warrior Poets, we as partners have always supported our company and its endeavors".

In his post, Spurlock said that while "hero after hero, man after man" were brought down by allegations of sexual misconduct, he wondered to himself, "when will they come for me?" Before long they were "fooling around" again, though this time they took off their clothes. "Something I thought was amusing at the time, but then realized I had completely demeaned and belittled her to a place of non-existence". I believe we all can. Alec Baldwin also said he treated women poorly and in a sexist manner.

"I've talked enough in my life".

"If I'm going [to] truly represent myself as someone who has built a career on finding the truth, then it's time for me to be truthful as well", he said.

The second incident involved a former female assistant who Spurlock said he would frequently call "hot pants" and "sex trousers".


The filmmaker also said that he has been unfaithful to every "wife and girlfriend I have ever had". "Being who I was, it was the last thing I wanted, so of course, I paid".

"That's why I'm part of the problem". "To make her feel better", Spurlock wrote. He says that when she quit, she demanded money in exchange for not telling anyone about his harassment of her, which he duly paid.

"I paid for peace of mind".

"We stopped having sex and I rolled beside her", Spurlock wrote in his account of the incident. He also wrote that he suffered from depression and has used alcohol to cope with the mental illness since he was 13 years old and that he hasn't been "sober for more than a week in 30 years".

Spurlock, an Academy Award-nominated filmmaker, confessed to sexual impropriety in a blog post to the social media site TwitLonger on Thursday. Spurlock says prior to this post, his first wife was the only person he had ever told about being the victim of abuse. [.] I will do better.

"Morgan Spurlock is not fearless, he's trying to get ahead of the story and give you a reason so when you hear about how garbage he is, you think of the reason", said one Twitter user.
