ROSTOV-ON-DON, 12 Oct – RIA Novosti. The American actor Eric Roberts told journalists as he was dismissed from a TV-show for the fact that he called the girl a doll and that he thinks of the movement MeToo. "I consider that the movement MeToo is an a few search … The excellent example happened to me" — Roberts who is the chairman of jury of the international festival of motivational cinema and sport of Bridge of Arts which is taking place from October 10 to October 14 in Rostov-on-Don reported. He explained that he worked at a popular TV-show in which many stars planned to participate. "There was a girl. I heard that she is a big fan. I came by the car, a parking zone, and I see that it approaches the car, and I speak to her: "As it is pleasant to see you, a doll". She stopped and told: "I will return now". As though she forgot something. And she ran" — the actor.© of REUTERS/Vincent Kessler/File Photo Nobel Peace Prize laureate Nadia Murad told supported movement Metooposle of it, according to him, he came into the make-up room where the security guard approached it and told that he should leave the shooting stage because it does not work today any more. "I explain to him that I work here. And he says: "Yes, you worked, but today is not present any more" — Roberts added. The girl asked to dismiss him because he called her a doll, and it is considered sexism, Roberts noted. "Since then I call a doll only the wife" — the actor concluded. The movement MeToo when more and more women openly report the sexual harassments endured in the past and bring charges, including against public people, gains steam in the USA and other countries. It began after a year ago charges of harassments and rapes against the powerful Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein were for the first time published. Subsequently charges of last harassments gave up as a bad job career of hundreds of famous men, including Hollywood stars of Kevin Spacey and senator Al Franklin, and all the actor Bill Cosby loved in the past went to prison for rape.
