WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- Dr. Jason Campbell, a Tiktok user who’s gaining huge following due to his dancing videos, was hit with a $45 million sexual harassment suit.
- The lawsuit was filed by a former colleague in Oregon Health & Science University.
- The woman complained that the doctor was sending her sexually charged messages and touched her inappropriately.
A doctor who gained huge following and engagement on Tiktok over his dancing-in-scrubs videos was charged with a $45 million sexual assault.
The lawsuit against Dr. Jason Campbell and his former employer, Oregon Health & Science University, was filed by a former colleague and social worker in Portland, who said that the Tiktok doctor sent her inappropriate messages and wrongfully touched her.
As of Monday, Campbell made his Tiktok account private.
The complaint stated that the doctor “began harassing [the] plaintiff via text messages, pornographic photos and sexually-charged social media messages” beginning January 2020.
On January 24, he allegedly sent the accuser a picture of his erection and an Instagram message saying “You look tasty.”
Four days later, in a text conversation, the woman wrote, “Hugs are organic.”
The complaint said that the doctor responded: “They are. But I’m fit. You’re… fit… there’s the orgasm.” He then added: “I mean organic (stupid autocorrect).”
Then on March 12, Campbell allegedly “snuck up quietly” behind the woman and, without her consent, “pushed his body and his erection forcibly onto [her] backside, pushing her into the desk in front of her,” the suit stated. The woman then yelled at him to leave.
The woman texted him after the incident and he allegedly responded, in part “I should’ve asked. I’m sorry. It wasn’t like that. My apologies. Hope you can tell that’s genuine.”
The next day, though, he allegedly texted the woman again. “I’m feeling lucky about another hug today,” and, “Are you home or still here? I’ll get my hug anywhere,” according to the suit. He allegedly continued: “I just want to hug you from behind without you yelling at me.”
The suit asserted that the woman complained to OHSU about the alleged misconduct. The Oregonian said that Campbell was under investigation, had violated harassment policy and would be under “appropriate” disciplinary action.
The suit further claimed that the woman said that the OHSU medical personnel didn’t officially report her complaints.
Tamara Hargens-Bradley, OHSU spokeswoman, told Fox News: “We are continuously working to evolve our culture, policies and practices to provide an environment where all learners, employees, patients and visitors feel safe and welcome. We take our role seriously in being part of the change that needs to happen across our country to end discrimination and power dynamics that allow for harassment.”
Campbell is no longer employed by the university and, according to the suit, now lives in Florida.
His attorney, John Kaempf, did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
