Below Deck Down Under’s captain, Jason talked about the sexual misconduct allegations of his season two crewmembers. On the 7th August episode, Bosun Luke Jones and Deckhand Adam Kodra get terminated for making unwanted sexual advances to Stew Margot Sisson and Stew Laura Bileskalne. On August 9, Jason shared an Instagram video talking about the incident.
Jason is disgusted after watching Below Deck Down Under’s episodes six and seven
The Bravo star said in the video, “I’m sure you’re digesting episodes six and seven as I am. I’ve had a flood of messages over the last 24 hours from people in similar situations—some not so lucky of the outcome—so my heart goes out to them.”
He continues by crediting the show’s camera crew and Chief Stew Aesha Scott as she intervened after drunk and naked Luke crawled into Margot’s bed while she was asleep.
“I like to thank the production team for breaking the fourth wall and stepping in,” the 51-year-old continued. “Then reforming and allowing Aesha to come to me in an authentic manner and us dealing with it as we would as captain and crew.”
Moreover, he explained,”I don’t know what goes on when crew go out, I am not told. If it’s inadequate behavior, production would inform me. But unless a crew member complains of anything—like Adam—I wouldn’t know. And as soon as Aesha brought it to my attention, I addressed it straight away.”
However, after this unfortunate incident he hopes the victims are now “on a better journey to better themselves” and requested for “less hate please, more love.”
He has captioned the post, ” thank you for all the lovely messages and I have great sympathy for the messages for those that were triggered by these episodes.
I applaud the production team and crew, and I sincerely hope that all parties involved use this time to reflect and use this opportunity to not only change but help others.
Everyone has the chance in life to grow, learn from experiences either good or bad, and become the best humans. Respect Boundaries.” Moreover, he added,“#sexualharassmentawareness #endsexualharassment #speakout #safeworkplace.”
