“I was never involved in any of the inappropriate touching incidents that Mr. Freeman has been accused of,” said Morgan Freeman’s million dollar vocal chords in a characteristically smooth, soothing tone. “As a result, I believe I should be able to continue working even while the investigation into his bad behavior continues.”

It is estimated that Mr. Freeman’s voice, recently voted the most iconic voice of all time, earns more than $25 million a year, while the actor himself earns about $10 million for his movie performances.

“I don’t believe I should be punished for the misbehavior of the man within whom reside,” continued Mr. Freeman’s vocal chords. “It would serve no purpose for me to be penalized for the appalling actions of an 80-year-old sexual predator when I bring so much comfort to movie goers and gravitas to the film roles in which I’m involved.”

It is unusual for vocal chords to declare autonomy from the person for whom they speak, but Morgan Freeman’s voice is unique, appearing in hundreds of movies, TV commercials, video games, even GPS apps.

“Morgan Freeman will have to defend himself against these accusations in the way he feels is best,” said his voice, “but I speak for myself when I say that I’m totally innocent and believe I should be allowed to earn a living through poignant narration and inspirational voice-overs as long as I am able, whether Mr. Freeman goes to prison or not.”

A judge in California will rule on the exemption of Morgan Freeman’s vocal chords next week.
