Tracee Ellis Ross set the record straight about Hollywood’s sexual harassment scandal: It’s not a scandal and it’s not only Hollywood’s problem.
Ross served as guest host on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Tuesday night where she presented a sort-of children’s book actually geared towards men to teach them about sexual harassment.
It is called “The Handsy Man.”
The “Black-ish” star started reading it in the show’s monologue.
“There is a guy, with ten long fingers/ creepy glares, and hugs that linger. If you’re a woman, you’re not a fan. I speak, of course, of The Handsy Man,” she read.

The actress provided men with a guide of what is acceptable and what’s not when interacting with a woman.
“You may not compliment my butt. You may not call me ‘ho’ or ‘slut.’ And even if you’re stoned or drunk, do not expose me to your junk,” she continued. The one passage featured a drawing of the “Handsy Man” exposing himself to a woman.
“I shouldn’t have to say this crap,” she shouted to the audience.
The book featured drawings in the likeness of Ross along with “The Handsy Man” character.
