Ellen DeGeneres tweeted in support of wife Portia de Rossi after the latter accused actor-producer Steven Seagal of sexual misconduct.

The "Arrested Development" actress took to Twitter to allege that Seagal unzipped his leather pants during an audition to see if they had chemistry "off-screen." 

"He told me how important it was to have chemistry off-screen as he sat me down and unzipped his leather pants," de Rossi tweeted. "I ran out and called my agent. Unfazed, she replied, “well, I didn’t know if he was your type.”

Following the accusation, DeGeneres tweeted in support of de Rossi and said that she was proud of her wife. 

de Rossi's tweet does not specify when the incident with Seagal occurred. However, the accusations against him are the latest that were leveled against Hollywood bigwigs ever after the Harvey Weinstein scandal was exposed. 

Seagal himself has already been accused of assault before, with actress and producer Julianna Margulies recalling an encounter with him.  

“When I was 23, a casting director, a woman, said, ‘Steven Seagal wants to go over the scene with you in his hotel room at 10 o’clock at night,’ ” Margulies told Jenny Hutt on Sirius XM’s show, "Just Jenny."

“I lived in Brooklyn, and I said, ‘Oh, I don’t do that. I don’t travel. I don’t have money for a cab.’ And I didn’t. And I said, ‘And I don’t take subways late at night.’ And she says, ‘Don’t worry we’ll reimburse you. And I’m here, a woman,’ ” she recalled. “I got to the hotel at 10:40, and she wasn’t there. And he was. Alone. And he made sure that I saw his gun, which I had never seen a gun in real life. And I got out of there unscathed.”

Others including “Inside Edition” correspondent Lisa Guerrero and actress Jenny McCarthy also leveled allegations against Seagal in the wake of the Weinstein scandal and the #MeToo campaign that saw numerous women who came forward with stories of sexual assault. 

At the height of the social media campaign, DeGeneres too showered praise on the movement on her show and said: "Part of the problem is that from a young age, girls are taught to stay quiet and be nice and that boys are stronger and somehow we are less than. That is why it is hard for us to speak out — and even when we do speak out, people don't believe us. But there is power in numbers and good for us, good for everyone speaking out. I want to say thank you to everybody speaking out."

However, DeGeneres was accused of double standards and criticized social media when she tweeted a birthday message to Katy Perry that included a photo of herself staring at the pop singer’s breasts.

“Happy birthday, @KatyPerry! It’s time to bring out the big balloons!”. DeGeneres tweeted, referring to the lyrics of Perry’s 2014 song “Birthday.”  Twitter users called the tweet hypocritical and sexist and some even compared her to disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.
