Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner has been accused of badual harbadment by workers author Kater Gordon.
Gordon, who went from being Weiner’s private badistant to Emmy Award-winning workers author on Mad Men, mentioned in an interview with The Information that Weiner instructed her late one evening she ”owed it to him to let him see her bare.”
She froze and tried to “brush (the feedback) off,” Gordon said and continued her work, determining it was a “lose-lose state of affairs” to confront Weiner.

She says she didn’t report the remark formally as a result of she was afraid of dropping her job.
A 12 months after the incident, Gordon was let go from Mad Men. The firing, which occurred simply weeks after Gordon and Weiner’s shared Emmy win, made headlines.
“I had the Emmy, but instead of being able to use that as a launch pad for the rest of my career, it became an anchor, because I felt I had to answer to speculative stories in the press,” Gordon mentioned.
Weiner’s spokeswoman declined to remark, however referred USA TODAY to an announcement given beforehand to The Information.
“Mr. Weiner spent eight to 10 hours a day writing dialogue aloud with Miss Gordon, who began on Mad Men as his writers badistant,” the statement said. “He doesn’t keep in mind saying this remark nor does it mirror a remark he would say to any colleague.”
Gordon says she is forming a nonprofit to badist victims of badual harbadment known as Modern Alliance. It goals is to “convene and connect” disparate organizations working to eradicate the conduct.
