Charlie Rose, 75, has been one of America's most respected broadcasters for decades. It was surprising to most then when sexual harassment allegations against him emerged recently.

Following the accusations, several television networks have suspended Mr Rose, including PBS and Bloomberg. PBS also suspended distribution of the Charlie Rose programme, describing the allegations as "deeply disturbing."

CBS News said, "These allegations are extremely disturbing and we take them very seriously".
In a report published by the Washington Post, eight women accused Mr Rose of inappropriate behaviour.

In an apology though, Mr Rose said that he did not believe "all of these allegations are accurate". In his Twitter post, he wrote: "I deeply apologise for my inappropriate behaviour. I am greatly embarrassed.
"I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken."

Apparently, the accusations span from the 1990s to 2011 and include "groping, lewd telephone calls and unwanted advances". Two co-workers said he walked naked in front of them, while another stated he groped her at a party.

Mr Rose is best known for conducting in-depth interviews with high-profile celebrities – from actors to politicians to rock-stars – on his self-titled television programme which first aired in 1991.

This follows hot on the heels of numerous other high-profile figures, including Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein as well as Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey, among others, who have been accused of sexual harassment in recent weeks.

The accusations were sparked by the #metoo hashtag after multiple women spoke out. The campaign encourages victims to share their stories of sexual harassment under the hashtag.
