Former 'Mad Men' Writer Accuses Matthew Weiner of Sexual Harassment

Not Released

Many questioned Man Men's decision to let her go - especially considering the fact that she was Weiner's assistant for a long time and had won an award with him.

Writer and show creator Matthew Weiner attends the "Mad Men: Live Read & Series Finale" event in Los Angeles, US, May 17, 2015.

A statement issued by Weiner's representative said that he "does not remember saying this comment nor does it reflect a comment he would say to any colleague". "I knew immediately that when he crossed the boundary". In the role, she would transcribe Weiner's writing, which he famously dictates, in addition to researching for the writers and compiling outlines of scripts - but she was also encourage to pitch ideas, she said.

'I thought, "I can't do anything to jeopardize". "It was extremely satisfying", Gordon said.

Added that individual, who asked to remain anonymous: 'I could see her confidence was shaken'. Weiner won seven Emmys and three Golden Globes for his work on the show, and is now developing the AMC show The Romanoffs.

'So I did what I thought women were supposed to do'. Gordon told other people about Weiner's alleged remark at the time, and they verified her account to The Information.

Not it's time for Congress to "do their job", she said. "Immigrant youth are honestly fed up, and they are exhausted of waiting". Supporters said it is wrong to deport someone to a country they may never have known and for whom the USA has always been home .

"He told me I was awful at everything, from my work in the writers room to on set", she said.

Kater Gordon and Matthew Weiner accepting their Emmy in 2009. Those experiences made her feel "shame and regret".

No further accusations have been brought against Weiner but judging by the behavior of high-profile predators, Gordon likely won't be the last person to speak out against him.

One year after the Emmy win, Gordon was let go from the show which centered around an ad agency in 1960s NY, fueling speculation about the reason why a 27-year-old award-winning writer would leave the acclaimed series. When Gordon approached her former mentor for feedback on her performance, she said he seemed overly harsh: "He told me I was awful at everything, from my work in the writers room to on set".

But Gordon is adamant, explaining that the incident not only left her unable to feel comfortable working in television, but has inspired her to create a nonprofit organization called Modern Alliance, whose goal is to change perceptions around sexual harassment.

Weiner, in response, released a statement via a spokesperson.
