Warner Bros. Entertainment is being sued by its former employee Becky Steenhoek for alleged sexual harassment, multiple sources confirmed.
According to the documents obtained, Becky claimed that several producers from The Bachelor franchise mocked her as of her “sexual inexperience and conservative views about sex”, asking her multitude of sexually-charged questions.
‘Bachelor’ Producers Sued by Employee Becky Steenhoek For Sexual Harassment
Among the list of questions, Steenhoek claimed that she was asked how often she masturbates, if she owns sex toys and if a man ever got her 'taco’ talking' etc.
Steenhoek claimed that she was fired just a week after complaining about the comments. Warner Bros. responded to the accusations on Monday, October 30 in a statement;
We take all allegations of workplace harassment very seriously. These allegations were brought to our attention and were thoroughly investigated earlier this year. Our findings did not support the plaintiff’s characterization of the events claimed to have taken place, which is why we are disappointed by the filing of this lawsuit.
The allegations come in June after production was suspended on the set of Bachelor in Paradise when a producer reported sexual misconduct on the set following an alleged incident involving Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson.
