Actor Ansel Elgort who rose to fame with films like ‘The Fault in our Stars’ and ‘Baby Driver’ has now been accused of sexual misconduct.
The MeToo movement which started in Hollywood brought forward a number of cases of people in a powerful position in the industry sexually exploiting women. Many took to their social media and shared their ordeal about how big Hollywood personalities like producers, directors and actors physically molested them on various occasions and also threatened them to not speak in order to conserve their public image. Actor Kevin Spacey was accused by multiple victims previously and now, his Baby Driver co-star Ansel Elgort has been accused of sexual assault by a Twitter user.

A Twitter user named Gabby came forward and shared her story of experiencing sexual misconduct by actor Ansel Elgort who predominantly made it to the mainstream with the film The Fault in our Stars. Gabby claimed that she met the actor through social media and also shared a selfie or her with the actor and the screenshots of the direct messages he made to her. She made the claim that Ansel sexually assaulted her when she was just 17.
