Former “Loud House” showrunner Chris Savino has responded to allegations of sexual harassment, with a post on Facebook.
“I am deeply sorry and I am ashamed,” he wrote on his page.
“Although it was never my intention, I now understand that the impact of my actions and communications created an unacceptable environment. At every stage of my career, I have sought to uplift my colleagues and cultivate a culture of respect. In this objective, I have failed. I should have known better, I should have acted better, and this has been a difficult but valuable lesson.
“I have nothing but the deepest respect for the bravery of the women who have spoken out, trying to create an environment in which they can thrive to their fullest potential.”
Savino was fired from Nickelodeon on October 19, after reports surfaced online about inappropriate behavior. A dozen women have accused Savino of inappropriate behavior — dating back several years — including unwanted sexual advances as well as threats of retribution after the end of consensual relationships.
