Shock revelations in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal show no signs of letting up. Countless big name stars have been outed since October as abusers and this has caused many people to praise the decent celebrities of Hollywood, including Robin Williams, for not being one of them.
But people may have been too quick to praise Williams, as he too has now been outed for his sexual misconduct on the set of Mork & Mindy.
In the video below, Pam Dawber reflects on filming the hit show with Williams:
Since his suicide in 2014, Williams has been remembered fondly throughout the world as one of the greatest comics to have ever lived. His decision to take his own life also opened up a discussion about mental health which has helped countless people in similar positions.
After his death, one of the many stars who spoke of the effect Williams had on their life was his Mork & Mindy co-star, Pam Dawber.
According to Fox News, Dawber was “completely shocked and devastated” when she learned of the 63-year-old’s passing.
Despite this, almost five years later, the 66-year-old has contributed to a new biography about the actor’s life, Robin by David Itzkoff, in which, Dawber makes a number of less than flattering revelations about the actor’s behavior on the set of the hit seventies show.
One of Dawber’s claims was that the late actor would jokingly grab her breasts then “run away”. While such behavior has caused other celebrities to be universally condemned thanks to the #MeToo movement, William’s co-star said she was never offended by his behavior.
Now, in quotes obtained by the Daily Mail, Dawber’s eyebrow-raising claims have been released and they portray the much-loved star in an extremely problematic light.
