New York Post reports:
A former “ER” actress claims that she was sexually and racially harassed daily on set — and George Clooney helped “blacklist” her from Hollywood when she complained.
“Clooney helped blacklist me when I spoke up abt harassment on ER.’women who dont play the game lose career’I did,” tweeted Vanessa Marquez, who played a nurse on the show’s first three seasons.
She accused actor Eriq La Salle and a crew member of being “p—sy grabbers” and said racial abuse about her Mexican heritage came from “Anthony,Noah,Julianna,” referring to cast members Anthony Edwards, Noah Wyle, and Julianna Margulies.
Marquez said she complained to executive producer John Wells.
Hours later, Clooney issued a rather cocky denial. “I had no idea Vanessa was blacklisted. I take her at her word,” Clooney said
Breibart News reports:
Update: Clooney has issued a statement denying he had any influence over the direction of Marquez’s career.
“I had no idea Vanessa was blacklisted. I take her at her word,” Clooney said, according toPage Six.
“I was not a writer or a producer or a director on that show. I had nothing to do with casting. I was an actor and only an actor. If she was told I was involved in any decision about her career then she was lied to. The fact that I couldn’t affect her career is only surpassed by the fact that I wouldn’t. “
