Peter Palandian Witnessed Sexual Harassment on CBS
“One day, when my now husband, Peter Palandjian, visited the set, Weatherly made us all watch as he pretended to urinate on an indoor office plant, then spun around pretending to shake himself off and pull up his zipper.
The tapes show Weatherly routinely exclaimed “yellow card” after distasteful remarks. I learned from crew members that, because there had been previous harassment training on “Bull,” Weatherly’s delight in yelling “yellow card” was his way of mocking the very harassment training that was meant to keep him in line.” – Eliza Dushku said, recounting her experience of sexual harassment on the set of CBS’s “Bull” and discussing her firing and forced signing of a non-disclosure agreement.
