Katherine Ryan claims sexual predators, whom she does not want to be named, are an “open secret” in showbiz.
The comedian and soon-to-be mother of three revealed in June that she repeatedly yelled at the anonymous celebrity when they worked together on a popular TV show. In an interview with Louis Theroux, Katherine Ryan said she believed the alleged attacker was a “perpetrator of sexual assault.”
“It’s very dangerous for us to have this conversation,” she told the moderator. “I’m happy to have it, but it’s a contentious minefield because a lot of people are trying to pin this guy on for the crimes they’re accused of, and this guy has really good lawyers, so I’m going to put my mortgage Put it on the line.” Who is this person or enter into this conversation?
“We’ve seen what happens to those who talk about putative predators.”
Catherine further emphasized that she was not a victim of a predator. “It didn’t really tell my story,” she said. “No one has ever sexually assaulted me, but this person, I believe very strongly — and many people believe very strongly — is an open and secret sexual assault perpetrator.
“I tell that guy in front of a lot of people in the show format that he’s a predator.” Asked if her words survived the episode, Catherine replied: “No, that’s fine. I still get For pay, I’m still doing my job, but I’m doing what I think is fair.
In June, Catherine told comedian Sarah Pascoe that she made the allegations in front of colleagues because she didn’t know what else to do. “I brought it up,” she says on her new Prime Video series, Backstage With Katherine Ryan. “I call him a predator every day, in front of everyone and everyone. ‘How should I do? It’s a real mess because I don’t have any proof.
