George Clooney is facing a firestorm of controversy as one of his “ER” co-stars, Vanessa Marquez, has just revealed a slew of shocking allegations against him. Clooney was slammed earlier for his wishy-washy statement on the disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, saying, “I don’t know what he did in private.” Clooney’s attitude toward Weinstein was troubling, and now, we know why. Marquez is telling all about the sick thing George did to her. You don’t want to miss this.
George Clooney is facing allegations of being complicit in the sexual harassment of Vanessa Marquez, who starred with Clooney for three seasons on the hit show “ER.” Marquez attempted to expose the daily verbal harassment she received by going to the show’s executive producer 25 years ago. When he blew her off as a troublemaker, the sexual harassment started in. It was almost as if the actors were given a green light after the executive producer shot her down.
Page Six reports, “A former ‘ER’ actress claims that she was sexually and racially harassed daily on set — and George Clooney helped ‘blacklist’ her from Hollywood when she complained. ‘Clooney helped blacklist me when I spoke up abt harassment on ER. [W]omen who don’t play the game lose career I did,’ tweeted Vanessa Marquez.”
She accused actor Eriq La Salle and a crew member of being “p—sy grabbers” and said racial abuse about her Mexican heritage came from “Anthony, Noah, Julianna,” referring to cast members, Anthony Edwards, Noah Wyle, and Julianna Margulies. Marquez said she complained to executive producer John Wells.
What makes her claims hard to dismiss is that she actually did try to speak out back then, so these are not new allegations. It’s just that no one believed then that sweet George Clooney would ever help get someone blacklisted, especially if there is any chance they were sexually harassed. “ER” made Clooney famous, and he was promoted as a good guy, an American patriot, by the press.

After years of fame, his hardcore liberal nasty side came out. He no longer had to worry about getting famous; he made it, so the mask came off. It’s also worth noting that Marquez says the producer’s first question was “Did George do something to you?” as if he was expecting whatever she was about to say would be about Clooney as the “harasser.”
Whatever happened to Vanessa Marquez? One thing is certain, she was on the biggest TV show in the 1990s but her career went downhill fast after she made the allegations. It does appear she was blacklisted. Clooney’s statement on Weinstein sounds almost like he is wanting to give him a pass, and he actually says he had no clue that Weinstein is a sexual predator.
“He [Weinstein] gave me my first big break as a director with ‘Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.’ We’ve had dinners, we’ve been on location together, we’ve had arguments. But I can tell you that I’ve never seen any of this behavior — ever,” Clooney claims. He described the alleged actions as “indefensible” but says he had no idea what the movie mogul was up to behind closed doors. However, Clooney knows what Weinstein was doing.
There are even jokes about Weinstein’s sexual behavior on the show 30 Rock and by other celebrities during various award shows. It’s crazy for Clooney to play dumb unless he himself had been complicit in the sexual abuse of his co-star. Then, he would be more likely to feign ignorance, just like he is doing here.
