One Tree Hill showrunner Mark Schwahn has been blamed for inappropriate behavior

18 'One Tree Hill' Cast And Crew Members Accuse Mark Schwahn Of Sexual Harassment

Numerous men of One Tree Hill, including Bryan Greenberg, Austin Nichols, and James Lafferty, are showing support for the female cast and crew members accusing the show's creator, Mark Schwahn, of sexual harassment and physical and emotional manipulation.

To use terminology that has become familiar as thesystemic reality of sexual harassment and assault has come more and more to light, Mark Schwahn's behavior over the duration of the filming of One Tree Hill was something of an "open secret".

Many of the One Tree Hill cast members even expressed their feelings on Twitter, with mainstay Sophia Bush retweeting the Variety post with hashtags in support of the allegations, including #BurnItDownSis #F-YourSorry and #BelieveWomen.

"Many of us were, to varying degrees, manipulated psychologically and emotionally".

The creation of the letter came about after Audrey Wauchope, a former writer for One Tree Hill and current writer on The CW's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, tweeted a thread over the weekend in which she detailed the alleged inappropriate behavior she and other women experienced at the hands of an unnamed showrunner while working on the show.

Schwahn is now an executive producer on E!'s "The Royals", which he also created.

"To say we left that job demoralized and confused is also an understatement".

'E!, Universal Cable Productions and Lionsgate Television are committed to providing a safe working environment in which everyone is treated respectfully and professionally, ' they added.

Saudi Arabia announced it shut down all ports after a Houthi ballistic missile attack near Riyadh's worldwide airport. Ambulances rushed to the site, where the building was badly damaged, and debris and body parts littered the area.

Wauchope didn't name Schwahn in the tweets, but he was the head writer and producer for "One Tree Hill".

On social media, the former cast and crew who signed the letter were met with support by other fellow cast mates.

Lafferty also took to Twitter to post a full statement on how he applauds "every woman on OTH. who stands up to a system that has failed them".

She detailed inappropriate things he allegedly said he would do while Audrey and her writing partner, Rachel Specter, were working on the show - she said that they were told female writers were hired due to their looks, and she said in meetings the female writers would avoid sitting near the showrunner "as not to be touched". For the first few seasons, we watched two brothers (Chad Michael Murray and James Lafferty) fight for the affection of their father while dealing with their complicated love lives.

"He pet hair, he massaged shoulders", she wrote. "I know he did more but not to me so they're not my stories to share", she wrote.

The cast and crew members who wrote the letter supporting Wauchope said they are all "deeply grateful for Audrey's courage".

"We understood that a lot of it was orchestrated in ways that kept it out of sight for the studio back home", the letter said, alluding to the fact that the series was shot in North Carolina.
