In a blunt Facebook post - tweeted with the message "Why I've despised James Toback for over 20 years" - the 51-year-old director says that when he lived in NY during the 1990s, he met over a dozen women claiming to be have been "accosted" by the "Two Girls and a Guy" director.

Director and screenwriter James Toback is the latest Hollywood figure to be accused of sexual harassment and assault. He essentially goes up to women and says, 'Hey, I'm James Toback, and I'm a famous director, and I feel like there's a connection between us.' Then he shows them some article on himself or some other artifact to prove he is who he is, and tries to get them to go somewhere else with him.

In several of the cases, Toback rubbed his genitals on the victims, then ejaculating either in his trousers, or on them. Alleged sexual harassment would then occur.

Toback, who isn't as well known as Harvey Weinstein, approached women on the streets.

He also went as far as to say it would have been "impossible" for him to do some of these acts, as he was suffering from diabetes and a heart condition during the period.

"He told me he'd love nothing more than to masturbate while looking into my eyes", said Louise Post, guitarist and vocalist for the indie rock band Veruca Salt. "I felt like a prostitute, an utter disappointment to myself, my parents, my friends", LaValley added. "Going to his apartment has been the source of shame for the past thirty years". "He always wanted me to read for him in a hotel or come back to his apartment, like, 'How serious are you about your craft?'"

Contacted by the Los Angeles Times, James Toback has denied these accusations, ensuring never having met these women, or " for five minutes, and without having any memory of it ". "He always wanted me to read for him in a hotel or come back to his apartment, like, 'How serious are you about your craft?' And the disgusting thing is, whichever road you choose, whether you sleep with him or walk away, you're still broken". She met Toback in 1987 while attending Barnard College.

Toback continued to work in the industry after the article. When asked, "paralyzed", if she was trying to stimulate herself sexually, director replied that "Of course" and young girl ran away.

After she undressed, Toback allegedly began rubbing his groin against her bare leg, at which point she grabbed her clothes and fled.
