Malek who previously also faced such questions finally responded raising his voice for the victims:
"I've sat here and talked about how everyone deserves a voice and anyone who wants to talk about what happened with Bryan deserves to have their voice heard. My situation with Bryan, it was not pleasant, not at all. And that's about what I can say at this point."
Furthermore, the 37 years old actor also stated on the all previous allegations against Singer.
Malek who previously claimed he didn't know about the accusations when he signed up for the film continued:
"My heart goes out to anyone who has to live through anything like what I've heard and what is out there."
He further states at the Arlington Theatre in front of hundreds of audiences.
"It’s awful, it’s remarkable that this happens, I can appreciate so much what they’ve been through and how difficult this must be for them. In the light of the #MeToo era that this somehow seems to exist after that, it’s a horrible thing."
Singer, who was fired for constantly not showing up at the work rather than for the sexual allegations against him denies all the allegations, claiming the lawsuits are being filed by a dishonest cast of people willing to lie for attention and money.

Malek himself revealed:
"For anyone who is seeking any solace in all of this, Bryan Singer was fired. Bryan Singer was fired, I don't think that was something anyone saw coming but I think that had to happen and it did."
Furthermore, some of Bryan's first sexual misconduct accusations date back to 1990s. Four men accusing the film director say they were seduced and some of them even raped.
Singer's alleged victims claim the experience made them suffer psychological damages, with substance-abuse problems, PTSD and depression.
