Sade Sellers claims to have worked with Marciano for several years and had this to say on the matter:
No formal accusations have been made yet, but it’s common for one story to open the floodgates. It’s often dangerous and difficult for one woman to step forward, but, as we saw with Harvey Weinstein, women can make a strong statement when they band together.
It seems that several people have had experiences with Marciano, or they know of someone who’s been harassed by this man.
According to this Twitter user, Marciano's been behaving like this for decades.
TMZ caught up with Kate Upton as she arrived at LAX and hustled through the airport. When a reporter asked her about her accusations, Upton said, “I’m excited to tell my whole story but a walk to the car is not going to cover it.”
“What do you think should be done to keep people in positions of power from abusing that power?” the reporter asked.
“I think a lot of people around them know about it and need to speak out,” Upton responded.
“Is this the end or are there more cases like it, you think?” the reported pushed.
“Way more,” Upton said as she got into a car.
Obviously, where there is a woman trying to fight for justice for herself and others, there are detractors.
The “Nobody made you do anything you didn’t want to” argument is one that is completely ignorant of the power dynamics of professional relationships for women. Women perform a tight-rope walk on a daily basis to make sure we remain “likable,” “hireable,” not “bitchy” or “bossy” or “too assertive” or “difficult.”
The vast majority of responses Kate Upton received were supportive (and from women).
Kate Upton knows that because of her level of fame, she holds a certain clout in the fashion world. And we applaud her use of her power to help other women who have been too afraid to step forward.
