During the episode, Drew said she reached out to Lucy in support of her claims that she stood up for herself after Bill insulted her during a scene.
“I got to say, Lucy is out there right now talking about her instance with Bill Murray, and I did this whole video and sent it to her to back her up and she was like, ‘Nah, I don’t need it.’”
Drew also explained the situation.
“Okay, so what really happened was Bill was just in a — you know comedians can be a little dark sometimes — and he just came in in a bad mood and what you have to know is how much Lucy stood up for herself, and that was the great thing that came out of an unfortunate circumstance,” she said.
“She literally said, ‘I do not accept that kind of behavior from you.’ And we all supported her and backed her up and we moved forward.”
Drew backed up Lucy‘s claims, saying it began with a “general” target and then “he zeroed in on [Lucy].”
“I respected her then, I respect her now. I am proud of us as a team and a company that we didn’t tip toe on the egg shells. We dealt with it right then and there, we were strong and we moved forward and we didn’t accept anything less moving forward.”
Drew also opened up about why she’s keeping her kids off social media.
