‘Silicon Valley’ star Thomas Middleditch is now one of many Hollywood actors who have been accused of sexual misconduct.
According to a report by Los Angeles Times, it was claimed by two women that they witnessed and experienced the misconduct at Cloak & Dagger, which is a night club in Los Angeles.
Accuser Hannah Harding claimed that she was approached by Middleditch and her girlfriend at the venue in 2019, and made “lewd sexual overtures.” Harding claimed she and her friend ultimately rejected the actor’s sexual advances.
Middleditch was said to have been persistent and ended up groping Harding. The alleged misconduct was witnessed by multiple patrons and club employees, including Cloak & Dagger’s operations manager, Kate Morgan.
Morgan told the Times she informed her bosses regarding Middleditch’s problematic behavior asked for him to be banned. However, the club’s co-founders, Adam Bravin and Michael Patterson paid no need and seemingly “dismissed” her concerns.
The Times obtained a text message Middleditch sent Harding after the alleged molestation.
“Hannah I had no idea my actions were that weird for you … I know you probably want to just put me on blast as a monster …” the message read. “I don’t expect you to want to be my friend or anything … I am so ashamed I made you uncomfortable.”
Harding claimed she had witnessed Middleditch grope another woman at Cloak & Dagger shortly after the first complaint. Harding stated that she reported the incident to the nightclub and received a response from Bravin about a week later. The response was definitely not favorable.
“Adam called me ‘to make sure and get a second opinion on him’ because they didn’t trust my story in the first place. They cared more about famous people at their club than women’s safety.”
At the time of writing, Middleditch has not responded to the molestation allegations made against him. We will have to see whether he will issue a statement regarding the matter.
