Tracee Ellis Ross Schools Men on Sexual Assault With 'The Handsy Man'

While filling in as guest host on Tuesday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Tracee Ellis Ross made a decision to open the showwith a special message for male viewers. Tuesday, the black-ish star spoke out against the myriad of harassment allegations finally coming to light in Hollywood.

"Let's start with the fact it isn't a sex scandal".

Since some men seem to be confused about what does or does not constitute harassment, Ross chose to explain it to them in the simplest possible way, using a children's book that she wrote about-and for-sexual harassers.

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. It isn't even a scandal.

"Treating another human with respect isn't complicated, but it seems a bit confusing for a lot of men out there", Ross said.

A flawless gift for the Handsy Man in your life. Ross then reads aloud from the book, which lays out in Dr. Seuss-esque rhymes all the things men should not be doing: "Even if you're stoned or drunk/Do not expose me to your junk".

You may not call me "ho" or "slut". Al Franken groping a sleeping Leeann Tweeden's breasts, and one final message: "I'll say it clearly, nice and slow".
