Actress Becomes Fifth Woman To Accuse Mario Batali Of Sexual Harassment

no title

In case you missed it, Mario Batali is the latest high-powered man to be taken down by sexual misconduct accusations.

After four women, three of whom were employees, accused him of sexual harassment in an Eater expos├â┬⌐, the celebrity chef stepped down from his business and his role on TV’s The Chew.

Batali admitted the behavior but said he didn’t remember the women specifically — so not shocking there are more victims out there.

One woman who saw the story was Siobhan Thompson, an actress whom you may have seen on comedy shows like Adam Ruins Everything. Thompson told CBS This Morning that Batali groped her breasts when she worked at Del Posto in New York City.

We wonder if more women will come forward. Either way, it seems we won’t be seeing much more of Molto Mario anytime soon.
