Women Have Accused 'Just For Laughs's Founder Of Sexual Assault

The judge, Gilbert Rozon, is also the president of Montreal's Just For Laughs comedy festival, and announced his resignation from that and other posts yesterday.

A top French broadcaster said Thursday that it was taking the French equivalent of "America's Got Talent" off the air over sexual assault allegations involving Canadian producer Gilbert Rozon, the show's linchpin. In a statement, they also said they were not judging the truth of the claims. To all those who have been offended in my life, I am truly sorry'.

Rozon wrote that he was resigning "out of respect for the employees and the families that work for these organizations as well as all our partners". I announce that I am leaving now my duties as chairman of the group just for laughs, as a commissioner for the 375th Montreal celebrations and as Vice-President of the Montreal Chamber of commerce. The Toronto Star has went on to point out the matter while outlet Le Devoir has connected with several women accusing Rozon. "I felt really small, knowing that he was a powerful man". She alleged Rozon sexually assaulted her when she was 14 years old. He pleaded guilty to sexual assault of a 19-year-old woman in 1998, which resulted in an absolute discharge. The event, which began in 1983, is said to be the world's largest global comedy festival.

The Weinstein revelations have encouraged women and their supporters around the world to speak up and denounce cases of sexual assault.

His resignation came after Quebec humorist Guillaume Wagner publicly accused him of being an "aggressor" in the wake of the snowballing allegations. One woman reported that in June 2016 she awoke following an evening of drinking to find Rozon having sex with her against her will, something that Rozon himself later disputed in an email exchange.
