Another person has come forward with allegations of sexual assault against former CBC host Jian Ghomeshi but this time it’s a man.
The number of complaints against Ghomeshi has hit double-digits.
The 10th person to come forward is Jim Hounslow, who worked for Ghomeshi when he was student federation president at York University in the early 90′s.
Hounslow currently works at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg and is the only male to have come forward.
He alleges Ghomeshi grabbed his genitals without warning and fondled them while waiting for an elevator.
Hounslow says he grabbed Ghomeshi’s arm, pulled it behind his back and told him to never do that again.
The next day he alleges Ghomeshi accused him of being macho, violent and homophobic.
The scandal surrounding CBC host Jian Ghomeshi has also claimed his former executive producer as a victim.
Arif Noorani has decided to take some time off while the CBC investigates the allegations of sexual violence and harassment.
Noorani has been with the program almost since its inception in 2007 and it’s unclear what role he would return to.
Ghomeshi has continually stated that he has engaged in “rough” sex, but that it was always consensual.
Ghomeshi says he was fired from the CBC because of the risk that his sex life would become public, resulting in what he referred to as “a campaign of false allegations.”
The CBC has said it fired Ghomeshi after “graphic evidence” emerged that shows him causing a “physical injury” to a woman.
