Hollywood Sexual Harrasment/Assault Thread

Oliver Stone Responds to Melissa Gilbert Harassment Allegations

 

IDK what to think about this one.  On the one hand, I DEFINITELY think Oliver Stone has the capacity to behave like a pervert and misogynist.  But...she read the audition sides, right?  So, she should've known what kind of movie and role she was auditioning for...right?

 

Regardless, the thought of Half-Pint asking anyone to "do her" just skeezes me out.  (Pa Ingalls is gonna tan that girl's hide if and when he finds out!)

I KNEW Sophia Bush's exit "because she wanted to" was leaving a lot unsaid. It just didn't make much sense -- until now. How horrible. She's been a part of 2 hit series and BOTH came with highly abusive, harassing men. Ugh.

Oh, man. I love Dream. What a horrifying experience. I guess the BSB are canceled. 

 

 

EDIT: 

Nick Carter denies rape with the type of "this was 20 years ago!" bullsh!t you'd expect.

On top of that, I just read that PBS and Bloomberg will no longer distribute his show.  IOW, Charlie Rose's career is over.

 

This is all starting to remind me of Chekhov's "The Cherry Orchard" and the recurring, off-stage sound of trees being chopped down and cleared ("the sound of a string breaking," as it's written in one translation) as the family who owns the orchard realizes (or doesn't realize) their entire way of life is disappearing.  Whenever another notable gets exposed as a sexual predator, it's like hearing another string break.

 

ETA: I'm hearing that CBS is looking to Oprah to fill Rose's chair on "CBS This Morning," if only temporarily.

 

What a great analogy!  The theater person in me loves this!

^ People knew all that when he was elected. To me, that's the most disturbing part. Not enough people cared that he was a sexual predator and a racist. Those things go together quite often it seems.  Anyway, that's why I fully expect Moore to be elected. It's sick and disturbing, but I don't know what we can do about it.
