Actress Sarah Scott tells the Los Angeles Times that Pardue took her hand and put it on his groin as they were about to film a post-coital scene in May for the pilot Mogulettes. After filming was done, she alleges that Purdue called her into his dressing room and proceeded to masturbate in front of her. When The Times contacted Pardue, he apologized for placing Scott's hand on his penis, but denies masturbating in front of her. The Times explained how Scott had trouble after filing a complaint against Pardue in the post-#MeToo era. She even had to enlist the help of Amy Schumer and her work with Time's Up.
