Judd Apatow Wants 'Monster' Les Moonves in Prison Over Sexual Assault Allegations, Kathy Griffin Lashes Out at Julie Chen

“Several days ago I learned of how Julie has treated people from folks that I know personally,” Griffin says while sharing nasty text message she sent former CBS CEO’s wife.

Judd Apatow thinks Leslie Moonves should be imprisoned over the sexual assault allegations Ronan Farrow reported in a second New Yorker exposé about the now-former CBS executive, and Kathy Griffin thinks his wife Julie Chen is a "bitch."

The veteran comedians are among the Hollywood stars speaking out against Moonves in wake of Farrow’s work sparking CBS to part ways with its former CEO, who has been with the network for over two decades.

"Les Moonves should be in prison," Apatow tweeted late Sunday while sharing the executive’s statement, which you can read in its entirety below. In another tweet, Apatow added, "This is so awful. Please take the time to read the details about what Les Moonves did. Imagine what kind of monster sexually harasses and assaults his own doctor out of the blue at a check up. He should be listed as a sex offender and shouldn’t get a penny. All to charity."

Griffin took to Twitter to praise Farrow’s report — containing stories of six more women with disturbing allegations against Moonves, including forced oral sex and career retaliation — and spoke out against the executive’s TV star wife, Julie Chen, who leads "The Talk" on CBS.

"Julie Chen has always been nice to me and I had no reason to believe that she knew about her husband assaulting women before they got married. So I reached out to her and told her I would love to come on her show and I didn’t need to make it about her husband/CBS," Griffin tweeted. "She never got back to me…but I figured she was just swamped with the scandal and didn’t think anything of it. Then, several days ago I learned of how Julie has treated people from folks that I know personally."

Rachel Bloom, the star and co-creator of CW’s "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend," gave her two cents on the situation shortly after Farrow’s piece was published Sunday.

"As an employee of CBS, I would just like to say that Les Moonves should be fired without getting a f–king dollar. The actions described in this article are those of sexual assault and shame on anyone else in the corporation who knew about his crimes," Bloom tweeted.

Hours later, Farrow reported "CBS confirmed that Moonves is leaving with no exit compensation pending outcome of investigation, and that he and CBS will donate $20 million to #MeToo charities," and Bloom tweeted, "Good. CBS: in the spirit of the new year, let’s make this the beginning of a new era."
