Mad Men writer who won an Emmy with creator Matthew Weiner is accusing him of sexual harassment

  • Kater Gordon, who won an Emmy with Weiner in 2009 for co-writing the episode "Meditations In An Emergency," alleges in an interview with The Information that Weiner said she owed it to him to let him see her naked one night while they were working late. Gordon says she tried to brush off the comments, as she thought that confronting him would be a “lose-lose situation” that would “end her career.” “I knew immediately when he crossed the boundary that it was wrong,” Gordon tells The Information. “But I didn’t know then what my options were." A year after her Emmy win, Gordon was let go from Mad Men. Asked to comment, a spokesperson for Weiner issued the following statement. “Mr. Weiner spent eight to ten hours a day writing dialogue aloud with Miss Gordon, who started on Mad Men as his writers assistant. He does not remember saying this comment nor does it reflect a comment he would say to any colleague.” ALSO: Gawker asked in 2009: "Why Did Matthew Weiner Fire Mad Men's Kater Gordon?"
