Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein's sexual harassment scandal has given rise to the "Me too" campaign, which encourages victims of sexual harassment to share their stories. The campaign is now dealing a serious blow to many celebrities.

Six-time Golden Globe winner Dustin Hoffman has been accused of sexually harassing a 17-year-old intern at a shooting set 32 years ago. Anna Graham Hunter, the victim who now works as a writer, published a guest column in The Hollywood Reporter Wednesday, accusing Dustin Hoffman, then leading actor, of sexual harassment by writing, "When I was a senior in high school, interning as a production assistant on the set of the ‘Death of a Salesman’ TV film, the leading actor Dustin Hoffmann sexually harassed me."

She added that when her supervisor found out about it, "She said that for the sake of the production we have to sacrifice some of our values."

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, the 80-year-old actor said, "I am sorry" for his alleged behavior.
