Ryan Seacrest picked an interesting accessory to wear to the 2019 Golden Globes: a Time’s Up bracelet.
The Live With Kelly and Ryan co-host showed off his bracelet on the first anniversary of the organisation’s launch, despite a stylist having filed a police report with the police about him, claiming he sexually harassed her.
She told Variety Seacrest allegedly hugged her more than 10 times while only wearing underwear. She also alleged he would push her head into his crotch while she tied he shoes.
Seacrest issued a response, denying the claims and stating a third-party investigation cleared his name.
However Hardy later wrote in a guest column forThe Hollywood Reporterthat E!’s parent company, NBCUniversal, didn’t interview key players.
“NBC did not interview 10 of the witnesses I provided, including my therapist and my boyfriend at the time,” she wrote.
E! stood by its investigation, saying in a statement that its investigation was “extremely comprehensive and thorough”.
Despite this, viewers on social media immediately called out the E! red carpet host.
“Ryan Seacrest wearing a Time’s Up wristband should cause him to burst into flames like a sinner in church,” wrote one Twitter user.

Why is Ryan Seacrest asking people about Time’s Up. Are we supposed to ignore the accusations against him— — (@kordiei)
“Ryan Seacrest is wearing? A Time’s Up bracelet? While everyone just kinda ignores that he was one of the accused men last year? SURE OK,” commented another.
“What gives Ryan Seacrest the ego to wear a #TimesUp bracelet? Does he think we forgot?” tweeted another one. “My dude, the time for you is not today.”
When reached for comment, NBCUniversal told Page Six: “This is old news from nearly a year ago. It’s business as usual for all of us.”
During last year’s Oscars red carpet, actress Taraji P. Henson shaded Seacrest about the accusations against him.
“The universe has a way of taking care of good people,” Henson said to Seacrest, touching his chin. “Know what I mean?”
