I understand, but I just feel that if there is any doubt about what really happened it should be easily cleared up.
If, playing devil's advocate here, nothing really happened, somebody misunderstood a gesture and rumours have grown out of proportion then this exaggeration does not help tackle the issue of other incidents such as Rachel's story.
On the other hand, if it was as described, then the Harlan apologists have to face the facts.
The one good thing is that the discussion of what is acceptable behaviour has just been made more public and widespread.
