Munn, who first wrote about an alleged 2004 incident with Ratner (with whom they did not name) in 2010 her book, “Suck It,” Wonder Woman!” “The Misadventures of a Hollywood Geek,” opened up about her claim — and others — in a “Los Angeles Times” story in November 2017.

“At first, I was not in the public call [Ratner]. I wrote a book where I discussed to him anonymously. A year later, he called himself and went on to lie about me. A few days after that he was on the Howard Stern show to publicly apologize for the lie, saying that he was sorry,” Munn says “Rogue.” “However, two years after that moment, he gets a $450 million dollar license deal with Warner Bros.”
“Where is the line? If you do not draw a line in the sand and say, ‘I’m not going to work with these people,’ then it will continue. Those who have the power, the film heads, the leaders — why do you work with these people?” she asks. “I’m not saying that people can’t come back from their mistakes, but why is it that when some people mess up, there is a formula for the redemption?”

“They say that they regret, hiding for a bit to come back, to work together with the people that she is in pain, then again their position in power, as the rest of us need to fall on the back of the line and work our way back,” Munn continues.
Ratner also announced in November that he would be stepping away from the projects he had worked with Warner Bros. “until these personal issues are resolved.”
“One thing that’s important is that we continue with the use of social media to support people who speak out and show their outrage at the perpetrators. There is this social stigma when it comes to [reporting] the sexual harassment. Women are seen as liars, men as victims,” Munn says. “The truth is that it just does not work that way. To come forward is difficult.”
