Sterling K. Brown Backs Olivia Munn Amid 'Predator' Sex Offender Controversy

But, in a recent interview with Variety, Munn said it was days before Fox took action, meeting her report with complete silence, pushing her to reach out again.

The studio only learned the news after lead actress Olivia Munn, the only member of the cast who shared scenes with the actor, reported to the studio that Steven Wilder Striegel spent time in jail for attempting to seduce a 14-year-old girl online.

"I'm contractually obligated. And from what I'm experiencing, I think they'd prefer I not show up".

In the wake of Shane Black casting a sexual offender in The Predator, and Olivia Munn speaking out about the issue, the majority of The Predator's male cast has been avoiding interacting and doing interviews with Munn.

Olivia said during her monologue that his firing happened on Thursday and that it really upset her when nobody reached out to her to ask if she was ok, while holding herself back from crying. There are two main issues as far as I see it.

'I believe strongly in giving people second chances - but sometimes you discover that chance is not as warranted as you may have hoped.

The movie's other stars continue to be called out on social media, with many finding Rhodes's comment that he "wasn't disappointed in Shane [Black}, I was disappointed in the situation, and I'm happy that Liv spoke up" to be underwhelming.

Exactly where Florence will track is largely depended on an area of high pressure that is expected to expand north of the system. That means sustained winds of at least 130 miles per hour and expectations of catastrophic damage, the hurricane center says.

"I have stated before, and I will state it again, I am proud of Olivia for the way that she handled a hard and alarming situation, and I am grateful that Fox took the information seriously and took action swiftly", Holbrook said.

Sterling K. Brown, who co-stars in The Predator has assured her that's not the case - and he's on her side.

According to Munn, much of the cold-shouldering came from director Shane Black, who has, allegedly, not spoken to her since the scene was deleted.

Fox told the LA Times last week regarding the situation: "Our studio was not aware of Mr. Striegel's background when he was hired". On Sunday Sterling K. Brown, who appears in the film but was not present at TIFF, tweeted his regret that she feels "so isolated" and acknowledged that the cast should have been told about Striegel's past. It would make everyone breathe easier.

"It's a very lonely feeling to be sitting here by myself when I should be sitting here with the rest of the cast", the actress said.

Keegan-Michael Key, released a statement through his representative, which read, "Furthermore, Keegan reached out to Olivia privately last week to let her know how proud he was of her and echoed that sentiment in many interviews since then". "And I'm sorry you've been the only one to speak up publicly", Brown wrote in a series of tweets on Saturday.

"My castmembers, nobody said anything to me about it", she claimed. But, we secretly wish they would just get hitched already.
