This is so awful. Please take the time to read the details about what Les Moonves did. Imagine what kind of monster sexually harasses and assaults his own doctor out of the blue at a check up. He should be listed as a sex offender and shouldn’t get a penny. All to charity. https://t.co/nTjqs6gWwM

As an employee of CBS, I would just like to say that Les Moonves should be fired without getting a fucking dollar. The actions described in this article are those of sexual assault and shame on anyone else in the corporation who knew about his crimes. https://t.co/1ItYyeLGmH
