Stan Lee is Now Being Accused of Sexual Assault and Misconduct
Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee is the latest big celebrity to hit with sexual assault and sexual misconduct claims. Who is accusing him? A string of young female nurses who were once employed by him have complained about walking around naked, demanding oral sex from them, wanting to be pleasured by them, and groping them. A source with knowledge of the situation said:
"Stan is an old man who has seemingly lost his way. He doesn't seem to care what people think of him, he's lost his filter. There has been a stream of young nurses coming to his house in West Hollywood and he has been sexually harassing them. He finds it funny. He walks around naked and is vulgar towards the women, he asks them for oral sex in the shower and wants to be pleasured in his bedroom. He uses the word p***y and f**k in their presence. He's also very handsy and has groped some of the women, it's unacceptable behavior, especially from an icon like Stan."
Lee, who is 95-years-old, has denied these allegations and in a statement by his attorney has said they are "false and despicable allegations". They believe that Lee is the target of extortion. The statement goes on to say, "Mr. Lee will not be extorted or blackmailed, and will pay no money to anyone because he has done absolutely nothing wrong."
It should also be noted that the nursing company who have come out against Lee stopped working for him in late 2016. His current carers from Vitale Nursing Inc. have since come out and said that Lee is "polite, kind and respectful."
With Hollywood currently banishing anyone who is even just mentioned in these kinds of allegations, it will be interesting to see what Marvel will do. If they don't want the bad press there's always the chance that we may never see Stan Lee make another movie cameo again. I assume that the people closest to him that know what he is like and have worked with him closely over the years will confirm or deny this kind of behavior from Lee.
These are certainly serious allegations that I know that fans hope they aren't true. Is this surprising and crazy news to you, or are you not surprised?
