Westwick is best known for his role as Chuck Bass in The CW series Cohen alleges that she visited Westwick at his home three years ago with her then boyfriend, an unnamed "producer" who was friends with the actor, when she went to take a nap in the guest room at Ed's suggestion: "So I went and laid down in the guest room where I eventually fell asleep, I was woken up abruptly by Ed on top of me, his fingers entering my body. I fought him off as hard as I could but he grabbed my face in his hands, shaking me, telling me he wanted to fuck me. You can read Cohen's full Facebook post below: "The last month has been incredibly difficult. I buried my pain and guilt to make space for the onslaught that came after my mom’s death, just three months later. I’ve grown considerably in the three years since my assault, so to revisit is painful.
Like so many women I too have a story of sexual assault, and the outpouring of stories have been both triggering and emotionally exhausting. To dig in and relive this night in order to accurately share the events, feels like a continued violation.
Part of Wynn's Facebook post reads, In July 2014, I went through a very similar ordeal with Ed Westwick, I was ubered by Ed to the Glendower Estates where he was renting following an invite from a girl friend of mine who was dating his roommate a cast member on Glee, we all hung out until 5am, sun was starting to rise since it was summer so we all decided to get a few hours of shut eye since we all had events and things to do the next day and there are plenty of bedrooms. Westwick has not responded to the allegations made against him by Wynn, but he responded to Cohen's allegations on social media on Wednesday, Nov.

Wynn ended the post with the #Me Too hashtag that went viral last month when actress Alyssa Milano used Tarana Burke's hashtag to urge women on social media to post "#Me Too" if they had ever been sexually harassed/assaulted in their lifetime.
The goal was to highlight how widespread the issue is among women continues to be, even though the #Me Too campaign was first founded by Burke 10 years ago.
UPDATE 07/11/17 Ed Westwick has now responded to the allegations with a brief statement on his Twitter and Instagram feeds denying the charges and claiming to not even know his accuser. Buzzfeed News, who first reported the story, reached out to representatives for both Cohen and Westwick but have yet to receive comment. Social conditioning that everything is always the woman’s fault?
Cohen, 27, is the latest performer in Hollywood to speak out against sexual assault in the wake of the allegations against movie producer Harvey Weinstein that broke almost a month ago. We will update this story as more information becomes available. My mom was dying of cancer and I didn’t have the support system or time to process and deal with the aftermath of the rape. That a man’s inability to keep himself off of our bodies is somehow because of us, not him?I’ve gone back and forth over and over again, unsure if I should speak up. My stomach is in knots, scared as hell to share this publicly, as even fully reconciling with myself has been a tough process.I was briefly dating a producer who was friends with the actor Ed Westwick.My other friends and people around me told me it was best not to say anything, to not be "that girl" and that no one would believe me and think I was just out trying to get my 10 seconds of fame.And so I kept quiet and soon got to see and hear how prevalent sexual assault and intimidation goes on in this industry..the point where I questioned how much I really wanted to be in entertainment as I didn't see it getting better. I've since moved on from acting and wanted just to reenforce Kristin Cohen's claim as I believe them to be true.And like Kristina, I said no and he pushed me face down and was powerless under his weight.
