Ultimately, her friends encouraged her to pursue legal action. When Einfeld failed to respond to Laursen’s lawyers, she publicly posted his emails on Facebook.
Before revealing his identity, Laursen referred to Einfeld as “Jorkle.” In her post, which has gained significant traction, she explained why she was no longer willing to be subjected to unfair treatment. “Many Hollywood assistants are underpaid and overworked, yet we are more than willing to do everything it takes to pay our dues to reach our goals and dreams. But in return there needs to be a basic level of respect from our bosses. Nothing fancy, just human decency,” she wrote. “I don’t want people like Jorkle to get away with whatever behavior they want because they know no one is going to do anything about it.”
On Thursday evening, Einfeld sent an email apologizing to his friends, colleagues and clients as Laursen’s post began to draw attention from mainstream media outlets.
