David Copperfield Voices Support For #MeToo After Accusation

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Magician David Copperfield has declared his support for the Me Too movement in a lengthy statement online in the wake of an allegation of sexual misconduct.

Copperfield says in a Twitter post Wednesday that he has been falsely accused in the past, and that even as he must "weather another storm, I want the movement to continue to flourish."

The entertainment news site TheWrap.com published accounts this week from a woman who claims Copperfield drugged and assaulted her decades ago when she was a 17-year-old aspiring model.

Copperfield does not address the accusations directly, but says in his statement to "always listen, and consider everything carefully, but please for everyone's sake don't rush to judgment."
