Every Man In Hollywood Who's Been Fired Over Sexual Misconduct Claims

"Millions of us have your back. You and your testimony are credible," stars including America Ferrera, Julianne Moore and Gabrielle Union say in the new video.

Several Hollywood stars are coming forward to express their support of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, a California-based professor and psychologist who recently went public with accusations of teenage sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh.

Produced by liberal group MoveOn, actresses including America Ferrara, Julianne Moore, Gabrielle Union, Eva Longoria, Marisa Tomei, Amber Tamblyn and Kelly McCreary came together to make a video in the format of an open letter, written to Ford.

"Dear Professor Ford, we know how difficult it is to stand up to powerful people," the video begins. "We want to thank you for publicly sharing your story of sexual violence. As members of the Senate determine whether Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh should serve as a Supreme Court Justice, this context is critical. The behavior you described was wrong and runs directly counter to upholding the law and promoting justice. He should not be confirmed."

"We can also imagine how shocking and overwhelming it must have been to have your truths shared on a national stage without your permission," they continued. "You should be the only decision maker about how your story is shared, if ever. We applaud your courage in coming forward for the public good, and we will be with you as you face the inevitable backlash."

"You are strong, and you are not alone. You are a survivor. Millions of us have your back. You and your testimony are credible. We believe you," they concluded. "Signed, your sisters."

Earlier this summer, Ford wrote a confidential letter to a senior Democratic lawmaker describing an alleged sexual assault she endured at the hands of Kavanaugh more than three decades ago when the two were high school students at Georgetown Preparatory School in Maryland.

On Sunday, Ford came forward publicly with the accusations in an article published by The Washington Post. Her attorney, Debra Katz, said Ford believes the incident was an "attempted rape."

Kavanaugh -- President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee -- has vehemently denied the claims.
