The allegations against Schwahn started with writer Audrey Wauchope, who shared a lengthy Twitter thread Monday night revealing alleged predatory behavior. She claimed female writers tried to avoid sitting next to him on office couches, and that he pet her hair and massaged her shoulders without permission.
Shortly after Wauchope's tweets were published, the show's female stars banded together in support, and issued a joint statement explaining that Schwahn's alleged misconduct extended to many on set.
Chad Michael Murray, James Lafferty, and the rest of the "One Tree Hill" men voiced support for their female co-stars, who, together, penned a joint letter accusing show creator Mark Schwahn of sexual harassment and emotional abuse.
Murray, who starred as Lucas Scott, praised the women — including Sophia Bush, Hilarie Burton and Bethany Joy Lenz — as "strong and incredible," and expressed his pride in their decision to speak up.
