Steven Seagal was fast to close down an interview after a reporter introduced up a rape allegation made towards the actor.
Seagal appeared on BBC’s Newsnight Thursday and host Kirsty Wark introduced up the #MeToo motion. Wark then says, “You’ve been very much caught up in all the allegations of sexual harassment, you had a rape allegation against you and I wonder how you deal with all that?”

Just as Wark wrapped her query, Seagal ripped out his earpiece, stood up and walked out of digital camera view.
Seagal was accused in March of raping a girl again within the 90’s … one other girl claimed he had sexually assaulted her in 2002. Portia de Rossi claimed Seagal sat her down on a sofa throughout a casting for certainly one of his movies and unzipped his pants, so she fled the room.
Seagal adamantly denied all claims.
Last month the Los Angeles District’s Attorney’s workplace decided the rape allegation was effectively past the statute of limitations and Seagal wouldn’t face any fees.
