I can't think of any man in the food industry (or any industry or walk of life) that would surprise me to hear were harassment allegations made against him.

Age has nothing to do with this.

While generally true, I like to believe people learn from their mistakes. In the past, I have behaved in ways that now make me cringe (including behaviors like pinching a guy on the ass). I would like to think most people who make mistakes when they are young, change their ways for the better as they mature. Some do, but very clearly, many don't.
