Michael Moore being accused of sexual harassment by former staffers is fake news. There is no truth that the Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker was being alleged to have committed sexual harassment to 15 staffers who include four underage girls. Rather, this is a fake news article that builds off of the recent allegations being levied against producer Harvey Weinstein by many women in Hollywood.

Fat liberal rabble-rouser Michael Moore is in a lot of trouble. As Hollywood elite Harvey Weinstein now faces charges for the rape of an actress as well as a slew of sexual harassment allegations, filmmaker Michael Moore now has to deal with his own accusations from a whopping 15 former staffers.
Fox News reported Monday:
While filming anti-gun movie Bowling for Columbine Sarah Slater, who was 16 at the time and on set as an extra, says Moore walked up to her and made “multiple passes.”
“I rejected him every time but he wouldn’t take no for an answer,” Slater tells Fox. “He had me change into this really short skirt and he would just stare. At the end of the day, I was at a vending machine and felt a hand sliding up my thigh.”
Slater broke into tears, but later explained that Moore “grabbed my posterior and slid a finger up against my vagina.” He then turned and walked away.
We advised her not to continue the interview because of the emotional trauma it was causing her.
At least four of Moore’s accusers were underage at the time they say he assaulted them.
However, there was no truth to the above story. A search on Fox News website shows no stories alleging any claims against Moore over sexual harassment. Additionally, there has been no reports from any legitimate news outlet. However, that did not stop several conservative sites from also publishing the fake news. Here are some examples of people sharing the fake news on social media.

We believe that there is nothing more precious than the mind of an aging conservative. Here we gather a boatload of bullhonkey, works of pure satirical fiction, to give the fist-shakers of the world a reason to hate. Reality is often in the eye of the beholder. You won’t find any of it here.

Moore shared a letter on his Facebook page, titled, “Use This Moment to Create a World Without Harveys,” where he addressed the list of sexual misconduct allegations leveled at Weinstein.
“Anyone with a flicker of a conscience or a modicum of decency stands, as I do, with the women who’ve summoned the courage to tell the truth about Harvey Weinstein,” opened Moore. “But well-meaning platitudes of support for the abused are simply not enough.”
