TransLink likely won’t be using Morgan Freeman’s voice on SkyTrain following #MeToo allegations of sexual harassment.

“In light of information we’ve learned through news stories this morning of serious allegations against actor Morgan Freeman, TransLink has decided to pause his voice announcements as part of a VISA ad campaign on the transit system. We will be in touch with VISA to discuss further,” TransLink said, in a statement early Thursday.

The Academy Award winning actor is facing multiple allegations of sexual harassment, according to an exclusive CNN report.

CNN reported Thursday that eight women have come forward with allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate behaviour against Freeman. The news agency interviewed 16 people, who described a pattern of inappropriate behavior by Freeman on set, while promoting his movies and at his production company Revelations Entertainment.

TransLink had recently announced that Freeman will be the voice of TransLink for a limited time.

As part of TransLink’s rollout of credit card and mobile payments on board its buses and at SkyTrain stations, transit riders would hear Freeman’s distinctive voice making announcements at select SkyTrain stations and on some routes for a brief time this summer.

The announcements are an advertisement for Visa’s new tap-to-pay feature.

Visa has also been contacted by Postmedia to find out if all ads will be pulled.
