(FOX NEWS) – An attorney representing Morgan Freeman sent a letter Tuesday to CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker accusing CNN of “journalistic malpractice” and demanding an apology after the network published a detailed report that accused the iconic actor of sexual misconduct.

The CNN article’s co-author and sole accuser who went on the record, Chloe Melas, alleged that Freeman, 80, harassed her when she interviewed him for CNN at a press junket for the movie “Going in Style.” Freeman has denied sexual wrongdoing but admitted to making some people feel uncomfortable throughout his career.

Attorney Robert M. Schwartz of Irell & Manella is now accusing CNN of defaming his star client.

The letter, which has been obtained by Fox News, states that “if CNN has any decency, or any allegiance to journalistic integrity, it will immediate retract the article and issue a public apology to Mr. Freeman.”

Eight women told CNN that Freeman made suggestive comments about their appearance and inappropriately touched them in an article that was published on Thursday.
