Morgan Spurlock joins the list of Hollywood men caught up in the sexual misconduct reckoning running through society. The documentary director released a statement late on Wednesday, detailing his own questionable past actions and putting them in the spotlight for all to see. Some applauded Spurlock for admitting fault, while others still ultimately believed his inappropriate actions should result in his dismissal from the industry. It's just another sordid chapter in an affair that is shaking up the very fabric of American life.

Spurlock fesses up

Spurlock took to TwitLonger to express himself. He named the post "I am Part of the Problem." The director started the post by admitting that he has sat around and waited for people to start leveling accusations toward him. After the introduction, he delved into a specific instance that took place when he was in college. Apparently, a peer wrote a short story for a class about how Spurlock raped her, despite him having memories to the contrary.

The director also discussed a lawsuit he settled. He had a propensity of calling female assistants by inappropriate names, so when she demanded a settlement, he obliged.

Spurlock now says he did that to protect his reputation. He also admitted a constant choice of infidelity during past relationships. He closed out his post by saying that he was ready to become a better man and ready to start listening to everyone around him.

Hollywood continues to reel

Spurlock is just the latest in a seemingly endlessly growing list of public figures to deal with sexual misconduct issues.

Just this week, director Bryan Singer was sued while Disney director of music publishing Jonathan Blake Heely was suspended. In other industries, Ryan Lizza, Tavis Smiley, and Mario Batali are among those who have been knocked off their perch this week. The fever has slowed slightly this month, but it could kick back up at any moment.

Spurlock is best known for his fast food documentary "Super Size Me." He made a sequel that premiered at this year's Toronto International Film Festival. He also has an ongoing show on CNN. It's not clear how this development will affect his career, but if it comes out that there's more to the story than what he's already said, it's over. Even if his admission is the extent of his actions, it will be difficult for him to earn redemption in the public eye, and rightfully so: sexual misconduct has no place in society.
