2018 featured more testimonies and affected the show business industry deeply. Actors such as Morgan Freeman, Bill Cosby, Charlie Rose, Matt Lauer, and Louis C.K were all fired from positions this year due to inappropriate behavior, and investigations are still pending for hundreds more in Hollywood.
