Steven Seagal recently walked out of a BBC Newsnight interview when he was asked about being accused of sexual misconduct in the U.S. amid the #MeToo movement.
The moment happened when host Kirsty Wark said to the actor, “In terms of your life in America, you’ve been very much caught up in allegations of sexual harassment. You had a rape allegation against you and I wonder how you deal with all that.”
Seagal then pulled his earpiece off and wordlessly left the chair where he was conducting the interview; he forgot to take the microphone off, and offscreen someone can be heard helping him remove it.
“Hello, Steven Seagal?” Wark responded, before pivoting immediately into a report: “Seagal there, and of course though he didn’t respond there, he has said previously that he denies any allegation made against him.”
The actor has been accused of misconduct or strange solo encounters by several major Hollywood figures, including Julianna Margulies and Portia de Rossi.
