Perrette responded to Vanity Fair's lengthy story detailing the fired Hawaii Five-0, MacGyver and Magnum P.I. boss Lenkov's abusive behavior by recounting the abuse she says she experienced on NCIS. Her comments come a year after Perrette tweeted "I was terrified" of former co-star Mark Harmon. "there are things SO RACIST and SO MISOGYNISTIC and SO HOMOPHOBIC and cruel that were said on set at that show that I have never spoken of because the language is SO HURTFUL," Perrette tweeted. "And y’all wondered why I quit? Those producers are still there. All of them. Including HIM. And good guy @LucasTill a beautiful truthful human, I too went to @CBS told about abuse by MH (Mark Harmon) on set & I was asked THREE TIMES 'are you asking for money?' I was like 'Huh? No!' And I did NOT! I wanted me & my crew to be safe from him. I should’ve and given it to his other victims."
