Marti Noxon is speaking up about Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner and the sexual harassment allegation surrounding him. In a series of tweets on Friday, the television writer-producer — who formerly worked on the AMC drama — described Weiner as an "emotional terrorist, who badger, seduce and even tantrum in an attempt to get his needs met." She added, "Everyone at Mad Men, regardless of gender or position, was affected by this atmosphere."
Matthew Weiner is publicly denying the sexual harassment allegation levied against him. At a event in Los Angeles on Friday promoting the Mad Men creator's debut book Heather, the Totality, Orange Is the New Black showrunner Jenji Kohan, who was moderating, started off the conversation by saying that while this should be a time for Weiner to take a victory lap, he’s instead having to defend himself against a harassment accusation from a former writer on his show.
After sexual harassment allegations were levied against television producer Mark Schwahn by former One Tree Hill cast and crew members, the female team behind E! 's The Royals is speaking out. In a letter released on Thursday signed by 25 cast and crew members from the series, the women on the drama accuse the showrunner of "repeated unwanted sexual harassment of multiple female members of cast and crew." The letter comes a day after Schwahn was suspended from his role as showrunner on the show.
Jenji Kohan tells Matt Weiner he ought to be taking victory lap right now but is instead having to address sexual harassment claims. Weiner flat-out denies the allegation, later admitting only to being a "demanding boss." https://t.co/hEe8y9Cwal
Marti Noxon, who used to work on #MadMen, says she believes Kater Gordon: "Matt is devilishly clever and witty, but he is also ... an 'emotional terrorist' who will badger, seduce and even tantrum in an attempt to get his needs met." https://t.co/zX7toy66p7
So far three events have been canceled, others endured awkward moments. When Kater Gordon's allegations were brought up at one, Weiner denied them and then deflected to his involvement with Planned Parenthood, the ACLU and Mad Men's feminist themes. https://t.co/w6Aa8Fuh2x
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
