John Lasseter accused of sexual misconduct, takes leave of absence

According to an article on the Hollywood Reporter, John Lasseter is being accused of sexual misconduct for grabbing, kissing, and making inappropriate comments. The article talks about an incident with Rashida Jones who was a writer on Toy Story 4.

According to the article, Lasseter made several unwanted advances on Rashida. Rashida and her fellow writing partner Will McCormack left the project early on citing creative differences.

Disney has not commented on the alleged incident and Lasseter is taking a leave of absence from Pixar after acknowledging “painful” conversations and unspecified “missteps,” he wrote in a memo to staff at Pixar Studios on Tuesday. His leave of absence is said to be for six months, but I expect it might be even longer.
