F. Murray Abraham Issues ‘Deeply Heartfelt Apology’ Over Sexual Misconduct Allegations

F. Murray Abraham has issued an apology after being kicked out of “Mythic Quest” following two allegations of sexual misconduct.

The “White Lotus” actor said he regretted telling “jokes, nothing more” that “upset some of my peers” and resulted in his firing from the Apple TV+ series in April 2022.

Production studio Lionsgate later confirmed his departure, which occurred between the second and third seasons.

Now, the actor has apologized for his actions, saying he had “grown in my understanding” and hopes his co-stars will “forgive” him after the allegations.

“This is a sincere and deeply felt apology,” he said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly.

“Although I never meant to offend anyone, I did tell jokes, nothing more, that upset some of my coworkers and as a result I lost a great job with wonderful people.”

“I have grown in my understanding from this experience, and I hope you will forgive me,” he added.

Earlier this week, Rolling Stone reported that Abraham’s on-set behavior raised at least two concerns.

The actor received a warning after the first incident and was told to stay away from the actresses on the show, sources told the outlet.

The second incident, which caught the attention of creator and star Rob McElhenney, led to the firing of the Oscar-winning “Amadeus” star.

Lionsgate said in a statement Monday that it takes “allegations of misconduct seriously and is investigating[s] them thoroughly.”

However, “as a matter of corporate policy, we do not discuss our personnel actions,” the company added.

The show follows a fictional video game studio that produces an online role-playing game called Mythic Quest.

Abraham’s character, C.W. Longbottom, was the main writer of the game in the first two seasons of the show.

Abraham’s departure from “Mythic Quest” came after his character was diagnosed with a terminal illness.

Her character then threw herself off a cliff in the Grand Canyon in a tribute to “Thelma & Louise” before her remains were blasted into space.

At the time, McElhenney described her absence as “a bummer” and said her character was “loved”.

McElhenney said they wanted to have a “really fitting tribute to him.”
