Mark Schwahn Accused of Sexual Harassment

Mark Schwahn, writer/creator of One Tree Hill and the Royals, has been criticised by former writers and actresses for sexual harassment.

- Audrey Wauchope and Rachel Spektor used to write for One Tree Hill, which was when the harassment took place.
- Stated that female writers were only hired for their looks.
- He would sit next to the females and massage their hair/shoulders. She stated more happened to others, but not to her and that it wasn't her story to tell.
- Nude photos of an actress he was having an affair with would be passed around without her consent.
- Didn't show up to the studios sexual harassment seminar.
- Asked Rachel if she really wanted to go through with her wedding and that 'maybe he'd have a shot'.

one tree hill meant a lot to me growing up so this is hella disappointing, but also not surprising. i think more is definitely going to come out about his behaviour.
