CBS TV Studios responded with a statement stating that the company was commitment ‘to a safe work environment on all of our shows.’ The network studio acknowledged that the actress had gone to them about workplace issue which they worked on together to solve.


They also stated that Perrette had a terrific run on NCIS and would be missed. CBS is responsible for producing the drama series for the network.

The star then asked her fans to leave her alone if they believe them. She continued with more tweets where she claimed that a ‘machine’ was keeping her silent about the ‘multiple physical assaults.’


The actress stated that maybe she had been wrong for not ‘telling the truth. She said her reason for this was that she felt she had to protect her crew, jobs and so many people.
