'CBS' gave a clear rebuttal to Pauley Perrette's claim about why she left 'NCIS'
The television network broke its silence on the former star's alleged claims of physical assault on its famous crime series.
Pauley Perrette took to Twitter to open up about 'multiple physical assaults' that led her to quit the popular crime series NCIS.
The television network, CBS, then came up with their own statement claiming that they have always sought to maintain, 'a safe work environment' on all of its shows.
Earlier past May, Parrette posted a series of cryptic tweets, in which she appeared to allege that she was physically assaulted on the set of NCIS.
I've been supporting ant-bullying programs forever. But now I KNOW because it was ME! If it's school or work, that you're required to go to? It's horrifying. I left. Multiple Physical Assaults. I REALLY get it now. Stay safe. Nothing is worth your safety. Tell someone.— Pauley Perrette (@PauleyP) May 13, 2018
Although the network acknowledged Perrette's claims, it also stressed the fact that the actress came to them with her workplace issues in the past and the network worked together with her to solve them.
Entertainment Weekly quoted CBS Studios as stating, "Over a year ago, Pauley came to us with a workplace concern. We took the matter seriously and worked with her to find a resolution."
There is a "machine' keeping me silent, and feeding FALSE stories about me. A very rich, very powerful publicity "machine". No morals, no obligation to truth, and I'm just left here, reading the lies, trying to protect my crew. Trying to remain calm. He did it.— Pauley Perrette (@PauleyP) May 13, 2018
The television network concluded their statement by admitting that Perrette had a wonderful run on NCIS with the network and would be missed.
Perrette played Abby Sciuto, a forensic scientist, for regular 15 seasons of the show. But she opened up about her woes on social media only this past May.
In her tweets, Perrette also disclosed that a 'machine' was keeping her silent about the 'multiple physical assaults.'
I want to thank my studio and network CBS They have always been so good to me and always had my back.— Pauley Perrette (@PauleyP) May 16, 2018
She then added that perhaps not telling the truth out in the open was a mistake on her part. She argued that she wanted to protect her crew, jobs, and other so many people.
Although she was only trying to do the right thing, the cost of not telling the truth turned out to be too high for in the end.
Perrette's final episode aired on CBS on May 8, 2018.
