Bill Murray Breaks His Silence On Allegations Against Him

According to Page Six, a source says Murray “was very hands-on touchy, not in any personal areas, but put an arm around a woman, touched her hair, pulled her ponytail — but always in a comedic way.

I’m not even sure where that line exists, or why the complainer didn’t simply tell Murray to “cut it out.”

“It is a fine line and everybody loves Bill, but while his conduct is not illegal, some women felt uncomfortable and he crossed a line.’’

As another source put it, Murray “loves women and loves to flirt, he enjoys poetry and romance, he’s always flirting, but it is always couched in comedy.

“It isn’t clear if he crossed a line.”

According to NYP, unless more allegations surface, this is it and it’s pretty weak. Murray is no Harvey Weinstein-style sexual predator. He’s not even a Bill Clinton-level harasser. He is not accused of hitting on, groping, injuring, assaulting, manhandling, sexually or otherwise, yelling at, using profanity toward or as much launching a harsh word or bad breath in anyone’s direction around the movie set.

Production on “Being Mortal” was suspended after an “inappropriate behavior” claim was filed against Murray, sources told The New York Times and Deadline.

Searchlight on Wednesday sent a letter to the film’s cast and crew announcing the suspension after a three-day investigation.

“Late last week, we were made aware of a complaint, and we immediately looked into it,” read the letter obtained by the Times. “After reviewing the circumstances, it has been decided that production cannot continue at this time.”
