Actor Bryan Callen Accused of Rape and Sexual Misconduct By Multiple Women

Actor and comedian Bryan Callen has been accused of rape, as well as sexual assault and misconduct, according to a report from the Los Angeles Times. Four women have come forward and told the publication that Callen was sexually inappropriate and/or violated them.

One accuser, Katherine Fiore Tigerman, said that in 1999 “The Goldbergs” actor held her down and forcibly raped her as she pleaded with him to stop. Afterward, she claims he told her, “Aw, come on. What am I, a big bad rapist? I’m not a big bad rapist,’” he said. Come on, you’re gonna be my girlfriend now. We needed to get this out of the way.”

Another woman, who worked as an American Apparel saleswoman in 2009, has accused the comedian of pinning her up against a wall in a fitting room and kissing her without her consent. An aspiring actress who allegedly had a four-year-long affair with Callen, while he was married, said he told her in 2016 that women have a “biological, primal desire to be raped.” One more woman, a female comedian, claims that in 2017, he suggested she give him oral sex in exchange for stage time and money.

Callen has denied all the allegations in a statement to the Times, saying, “Let me be very clear: I have never raped, forced myself upon any woman nor offered to trade stage time for sex. EVER.” He also added, “I know the truth. And I can only hold my head up high, remain true to myself, my family, my audience and know that I will not allow the cancel culture to subvert what I know and as importantly, what they know, is the truth.” Specifically for Tigerman’s rape claim, Callen says it’s “demonstrably false,” and that they “BOTH agreed to have sex.”

The actor has also recently come to the defense of comedian Chris D’Elia, who has also been accused of sexual misconduct,  as well as knowingly seeking out inappropriate relationships with underage girls. D’Elia has also denied the allegations.

In an episode of his podcast last month, “The Fighter and the Kid,” Callen called long-time friend D’Elia a “ladies’ man,” but says he’d “never seen or heard” of him engaging in illegal activity. Stating, “right now I have to believe that, because he’s still a friend.”
