Cameron attended the Television Critics Assn. winter press tour in Pasadena on Saturday to discuss his installment of the recurring "AMC Visionaries" series. In her Facebook post, Dushku detailed a disturbing encounter where Kramer allegedly took her back to his hotel room and lay and "rubbed" on top of her "catatonic body" until he "finished".

ACTRESS Eliza Dushku has claimed she was sexually abused as a child while working on a big Hollywood production.

She says that after "writhing" his very big naked body over her, whilst her clothes remained on, that he told her they should be "careful" about telling anyone what happened. "I'm not even angry, I'm just so hurt", he said. "I think all of the women are that are speaking up and calling for a reckoning now". Cameron said that Dushku was very fearless to come out. I know the other party - not well - he hasn't worked for me since then. "He hasn't worked for me since then. I think going froward it's important for all industries, and certainly Hollywood, to create a safe avenue for people to speak up, that they feel safe and that anybody that might be a predator or an abuser knows that that mechanism is there, that it's encouraged and there's no shame around it and there will be consequences".

Expressing a need for change across the board, Cameron continued, "I think this has been endemic throughout human systems, not just Hollywood". I think we all collectively as a human race - I don't think this is a Hollywood; Hollywood is in a unique positon to actually shine spotlight, as Hollywood has historically done on a lot of social issues.

Eliza Dushku has appeared in Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Dollhouse and movies including Bring It On. "I never sexually assaulted her", he says.

Cameron said that "director's are generally pretty oblivious" to situations like these, but if he knew about it, "there would have been no mercy". "Especially now, I have daughters so there would definitely be no mercy now". "There'd really be no mercy now".

In addition to the encouragement she felt from other women speaking out, Dushku noted that she was further emboldened to make her claims publicly when she realized Kramer had not been "found out" and banished from Hollywood as she was previously led to believe. "He was supposed to be my protector, he was my abuser", Dushku writes.

Kramer, whose recent credits include Star Trek: Discovery, Blade Runner 2049, Westworld and Furious 7, denied Dushku's allegations.

The actress claimed the man in his 30s "lured me to his Miami hotel room with a promise to my parents that he would take me for a swim at the crew's hotel pool". "At that age they are impressionable and my job as a stunt coordinator was to get Eliza to trust us, because she has to do stunts, she has to be in harnesses".
