When NCIS actor Pauley Perrette announced this year that she planned on leaving her role as forensic scientist Abby Sciuto after 15 seasons, fans were shocked. Now Perrette has posted a handful of tweets that imply the true cause of her exit, which seems to centre around an abusive work environment.

Following the May 8 season finale of NCIS, Perrette began sharing some revealing tweets. Opening with a Michelle Obama quote, Perrette said that she refused to go low, but couldn’t stand by while untrue stories about her were being sold to the media.


Perrette said the main reason she had stayed silent until this point was to protect the jobs of her fellow workers on NCIS, which has been renewed for a 16th season.


Perrette does not name names but ends one of her tweets with the line “He did it.”


Perrette’s final tweet on the topic alleges bullying and physical assault, saying she now understands why people don’t report assault when it occurs at their school or place of work.

CBS has yet to comment on Perrette’s tweet, but as the story continues to pick up steam there is hope that the station will be forced to investigate Perrette’s claims. In the wake of the #MeToo movement there have been positive changes to improving work environments on TV sets. Most recently, Lethal Weapon star Clayne Crawford was replaced by Seann William Scott after it was revealed that Crawford had been abusive towards his co-workers. Hopefully Hollywood sticks to their new rule that if you act like a jerk at work, you’re going to be fired.
