The MeToo campaign has sent many heads rolling across the planet. The latest name in this list is Britain’s Sir Philip Green, a businessman in the country’s Parliament. Green’s reputation was ruined after severe backlash following claims of sexual harassment and racism emerged against him, reports Daily Mail.
The publication reported that the billionaire tried to ban newspapers from reporting allegations of bullying with the use of some controversial gagging orders on former staff. His injunction got worse when Lord Peter Hain, a former government minister named him in Parliament.
Green stated later that he ‘categorically and wholly' denies all the claims of 'unlawful sexual or racist behaviour' that were made against him. Meanwhile, the British people have threatened a boycott of Green’s Arcadia Group. Many even asked to remove his knighthood and a hashtag #PinkNotGreen is reportedly trending in the country.
Though the allegations against Green kept him anonymous in the eyes of the public, Lord Hain used his parliamentary privilege to reveal the businessman’s name. Lord Hain said that it was in the public interest' that allegations against Green were aired.
