Broad City’s Ilana Glazer has spoken out in response to the #MeToo campaign, revealing that she has endured sexual harassment at all stages of her life — beginning in middle school. In an Instagram post, Glazer said that she had been “sexually harassed countless times.”

“In middle school, in high school — by more teachers than students! At work as a waitress, at work as a showrunner!”

But even though harassment continues to be a part of her life, the comedian said, she’s fortunate to be in a position where she can now do something about it when it happens.

“I was sexually harassed by a creepyass doctor just last year and filed a complaint with NYC,” she wrote. “I’ve fired a couple dudes — one background actor and one sound guy. I was asked, ‘Are you sure?’ Hm okay yeah lemme think a sec — YEAH I’M FUCKING SURE. Cuz getting sexually harassed seems to be a constant, but having the opportunity to do something about it is rare.”
