Television host and producer Ryan Seacrest wore a Time’s Up bracelet while conducting pre-show interviews at the 76th annual Golden Globes at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills on Sunday.
Seacrest was accused of sexual misconduct by a stylist for E! News in 2017.
Suzie Hardy worked as Seacrest’s stylist for “E! News” from 2006-2014, and in a November 2017 letter to NBC Universal, her attorneys outlined allegations of harassment and assault, according to Variety.
Seacrest has persistently denied the allegations, describing them as ‘reckless.’
People took to Twitter to voice their criticism and outrage of Seacrest’s decision to wear the bracelet despite the allegations against him.

During the broadcast, actress Regina King spoke to Seacrest about the Time’s Up movement.
Now that I'm reminded of the allegations against Ryan Seacrest, I love Regina King and her son even more for making sure he acknowledged the #TimesUp movement. Can he go yet?

In a letter sent in November of 2017, Hardy’s lawyers asked E! to “come up with a plan to address the treatment of all women at the networks and to take responsibility for the wrongful treatment” (of Hardy).
A week later, Seacrest took her allegations public, announcing that E! was investigating a claim of “misconduct” against him without using Hardy’s name: “someone that worked as a wardrobe stylist for me nearly a decade ago.”
“Total exasperation was my definite feeling when I heard about it,” Hardy told Variety.
She was interviewed three times by an independent investigator, she said. “I felt like by the third interview, it was obvious the investigator was whitewashing it for Seacrest’s side.”
Seacrest has repeatedly denied her allegations.
Seacrest is also the co-host of “Live with Kelly and Ryan” and the radio show “On Air with Ryan Seacrest,” and is head of his own clothing and skincare lines.
