Catherine Bach, the star of the hit series -‘Dukes of Hazzard‘ gave her remarks immediately after the claim was put by Casey Affleck that he or his brother Ben Affleck as a kid were not allowed to watch the hit series of “Dukes of Hazzard” by their parents only because they felt the show was “sexist.” The boys were raised to be very respectful of women.
Bach, who played the role of Daisy Duke, told Fox News on Wednesday that – “I have to disagree with Casey and Ben’s mom.” She further added that the character of Daisy Duke was of a strong woman who was capable and hardworking. At no point of time daisy had to sacrifice her femininity to be any of those things. It is unfair to penalize any character for physical beauty or a sexy wardrobe. Rather one should look beyond appearances and see the heart of someone.
For all those who don’t know a few years back this 43 year old Oscar winner Affleck was accused of sexual harassment. He was sued for $2 million by Producer Amanda White. Later cinematographer Magdalena Gorka sued him for $2.25 million.
Earlier this week the “Manchester by the Sea” actor Affleck appeared on Dax Shepard’s “Armchair Expert” podcast where he expressed his views. He informed that he was very much in support of the #MeToo cause. According to him he kept quiet during the height of the #MeToo movement was only to avoid being a distraction. Another reason was that the values of the #MeToo movement are values that are at the heart of his being. They are just the way he was raised and are baked into his value system. He further added that a workplace is preposterous. He lamented that his reputation has been marred by harassment allegations against him and they are “antithetical” to his true character.
