“Broad City” co-creator and star Ilana Glazer is the latest star to reveal her experience with sexual harassment using the #MeToo hashtag.

In an Instagram post on Tuesday, Glazer shared that she’s been the victim of sexual harassment “countless times,” including as a student, as the patient of a “creepy-a– doctor” and on the set of her own Comedy Central series.

“In middle school, in high school — by more teachers than students! At work as a waitress, at work as a showrunner! Same same same — I was a woman in both places,” she wrote. “I was sexually harassed by a creepy-a- doctor just last year and filed a complaint with NYC.”

But now that Glazer, along with co-star Abbi Jacobson, is in charge of her own show, she’s in a position to do something about it.

“I’ve fired a couple dudes — one background actor and one sound guy,” she wrote. “I was asked, ‘Are you sure? Hm. Okay yeah lemme think a sec — YEAH I’M F–ING SURE. Cuz getting sexually harassed seems to be a constant, but having the opportunity to do something about it is rare.”

Dozens of stars have come forward using the #MeToo hashtag after Alyssa Milano asked women on Twitter to share stories of sexual harassment to “give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem.”

“How to Get Away With Murder” star Viola Davis and “Transparent’s” Trace Lysette both used the hashtag on Instagram, earning a “big queenly thanks” from Glazer, who said they helped her feel brave enough to speak out.

#metoo – big queenly thanks to @tracelysette & @violadavis posting this so i felt brave enough to!
