    Being an actor does not make you brave. Hollywood is not different from anywhere else. How many of you stay silent when you see shitty stuff going on around you because you want to keep your job?

    Let’s be real

    I don’t get judging the victims here. That’s wrong. Read what Terry Crews wrote:

    Crews said he didn’t go public with his experience because he didn’t want to be “ostracized” from the business, which he described as something that would be “par 4 the course when the predator has power n influence.”

    If a man as big and intimidating as Crews is scared of losing his livelihood for speaking out, what do you think some young lady trying to break into the business is going to feel?!

    Harvey was a predator, purposely seeking out younger women so he could use his stature in the industry to prey on them. He threatened the Times, Farrow, and New Yorker with lawsuits. He had victims sign NDAs. The fault is not with the victims. It is squarely with Harvey.

    This speaks to the “open secret” that was kept hidden for decades in Hollywood and a glimpse into the perceived costs of speaking up:

    Ehhh I saw a bunch of people defending him. Maybe that was more anti-Denzel than anything.

    This forum is full of low-key racists and barely concealed misogynsts.

    If it’s an option bewteen an black man winning 3 Oscars and being heralded as the world’s greatest actor in the process, or a mediocre white sexual harrasser, many will fight tooth and nail for the mediocre sex pest. That’s society for you.

    Not here for this hypocritical hand-wringing about the support Affleck got. People support deviant scumbags like him and Polanski and Allen, and pull the “it shouldn’t matter. He’s an artist” crap. Now people are seeing the scale of damage that can be caused with that attitude in Weinstein.

    Rose McGowan is calling out Jeff Bezos and Amazon for their continued employment of sexual harrasers, pedos and rapists. Maybe she’ll be listened to.

    It gets worse for Amazon. Rose McGowan called them out when she said Harvey raped her. Sheesh. After pushing Casey to Oscar win and now pushing Woody Allen, this is not a good look.

    This expose will be far-reaching and so gross. Sigh.

    For the record, I thought Transparent was overrated from the very beginning, and that the only remarkable aspects were the Cinematography, Main Title Theme Music, and obviously Tambor’s performance. I have Hulu, I have Netflix, I never have felt a need for Amazon, and now I’m glad the most I ever give those assholes is a free trial during my Spirit Awards voting IF they have movies I can’t see anywhere else.

    I love Midnight In Paris, but f**k Woody Allen personally.

    I love Chinatown, but f**k Roman Polanski personally.

    I love Good Will Hunting, The Bourne Ultimatum, Argo, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill Vol 1., and Inglourious Bastards, but f**k Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Quentin Tarantino, and Harvey Weinstein personally.

    I LOVE Dallas Buyers Club, but… why the f**k do people hate Jared Leto personally?! Give me a f**king break on that one! F**k the white knight idiots who called his portrayal of a trans woman “stereotypical” and/or willfully misinterpreted him calling her a “creature!” He obviously meant that she was like a beautiful creature, like we are all creatures of this Earth! The Jared Leto hate train is about as insane as all the losers who came out to hate on Anne Hathaway after her Oscar! Leto gave a transformative, sincere, and empathic performance in Dallas Buyers Club, he earned that Oscar, GET OVER IT.

    I love Gladiator, L.A. Confidential, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, and his performance (+The Cinematography) of A Beautiful Mind, but f**k Russell Crowe personally.

    I love Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome, Lethal Weapon, Hacksaw Ridge, and even Braveheart as kind of a guilty pleasure, but f**k Mel Gibson.

    I LOVE The Last Emperor, one of my all-time favorite movies, On The Waterfront, A Streetcar Named Desire, and The Godfather, but for filming a non-consensual rape scene in Last Tango In Paris and for taking part in it, f**k Bernardo Bertolucci and Marlon Brando.

    Last but DEFINITELY not least, f**k Andy Signore for giving me a couple of the most consistently entertaining years of my life with Movie Fights and Honest Trailers, only be an idea-stealing, sexually harassing, manipulative, and RAPIST CREEP all while it was happening. This one hurt me the most on a personal level for sure. 🙁

    I would also mention Bill Cosby and Casey Affleck, but I’ve never seen anything with them I loved that much. Still haven’t seen Jesse James, thought Gone Baby Gone was just okay, and you all know by now what I thought of Manchester by-the-sea. F**k Cosby and Casey too though.

    I never thought much of Donald Trump before he ran for President, but f**k that guy all the way to hell!

    The Cosby Show was the first show I ever binged.

    Also, f**k Jason Momoa. The dude was never that great an actor, and even though he apologized WHY WOULD YOU BE DUMB ENOUGH TO “JOKE” ABOUT “Raping beautiful women.” Inexcusable and sickening! 🙁

    Now you all have another reason (besides groper and liar Affleck) to not see the Justice League movie! The trailer was already garbage in the first place, and Zack Snyder hasn’t made a good movie since Watchmen, let alone DC movie, period.

    I never watched an episode of that or of I Spy in my entire damn life. Sorry for your loss of an idol. At least you know how I feel about Andy Signore.

    The reason I give Jane Fonda WAY more of a pass than I ever will Meryl Streep and especially that f**king slimebag Ben Affleck is because at least the former admitted she knew and is “ashamed” she didn’t speak out. One statement had genuine emotion and sincerity, the other in my opinion did not. THAT is for me personally the big difference.

    Check out this video of Jane Fonda being raw and real about this scandal:

    I posted this under Riley Chow’s new article on the trailer for the new Jack Ryan tv show from Amazon. It said my comment was awaiting moderation, so I thought I would re-post it here just in case it gets erased.

    I love John Krasinski. I liked a couple of the Jack Ryan movies. I will not see this show, because Amazon supported a sexual predator like Woody Allen, pushed a sexually harassing creep (let alone MEDIOCRE ACTOR) like Casey Affleck to an Oscar win, and now… THIS: https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2017/10/roy-price-amazon-sexual-harassment-allegations

    Those Amazon slimebags were even called out by Rose McGowan! http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/rose-mcgowan-confirms-claim-harvey-weinstein-raped-me-1048343

    Besides, Jeff Bezos is an asshole tech oligarch who doesn’t deserve the money of any decent human being. https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-damaged-democracy-silicon-valley-will-finish-it-off

    Ryan Coogler gave a GREAT statement in my opinion. Blunt, sincere, and to the point! He proved with Fruitvale Station and Creed he was a great director, now he has proven to me that he is a great human being. 🙂
