‘Community’ Writer Accepts Dan Harmon’s Sexual-Misconduct Apology

Megan Ganz, a former writer on Community, has publicly forgiven showrunner Dan Harmon, who allegedly sexual harassed her, after Harmon publicly apologized. “It took me years to believe in my talents again, to trust a boss when he complimented me and not cringe when he asked for my number,” Ganz had said. “I was afraid to be enthusiastic, knowing it might be turned against me later.” Harmon apologized both on social media and on his podcast, explaining he was “disgusted and sorry that I stained our show and your talent with my selfish, childish shit.” Ganz announced on Wednesday that she had forgiven Harmon privately and that she wanted to make clear that her initial reasoning for going public “was never about vengeance; it's about vindication.” She wrote, “If any part of this process should be done in the light, it’s the forgiveness part. And so, @danharmon, I forgive you.”
