Earlier this week, actress Amanda Seales took to her Instagram to formally accuse former National Football League player Myron Rolle, a Florida State University Rhodes Scholar and Harvard neurosurgeon, of sexual harassment.
Seales claimed the alleged harassment took place during phone calls and correspondence on the Internet where she said she was first approached.
“I really don’t take it lightly what I’m about to say, because when you name names, you know you not only put that person out there but you put yourself out there,” she said. “But, I feel as a woman who makes it my business to be a warrior for the truth, that it needs to be said. I, on my podcast, um and on ‘The Breakfast Club,’ spoke about an individual who had approached me on the Internet and we spoke on the phone, and, uhh they said some troubling things in the conversation that made me take a step back.”
She then stated she was made aware that Rolle had another encounter with another woman, who says he greeted her at the door of his hotel room with no clothes on and then made her feel uncomfortable about her reaction.
She also stated that up to 8 women have come forward to complain about the former Tennessee Titans player:
“When I spoke about him on my podcast and on ‘The Breakfast Club,’ I didn’t say his name. I literally just said a couple of characteristics about him and it has been shocking and incredibly discomforting to me, how many women, 8 as of tonight, that have come forward to say his name. And that he had been incredibly problematic and behaved in a very sexually predatorial way that could have gotten him fired. I say all that to say, if you are approached by Myron Rolle, you should just be mindful,” she said in closing.
He has since responded to the allegations:
In 2012, he signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers and announced his retirement from the league in 2013.
