    Not the only acusstion he’s facing theres another one…https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.newsweek.com/ansel-elgort-getting-canceled-twitter-heres-everything-we-know-1512150%3famp=1 I definitely see him being replaced from West Side Story

    If he’s being hit with more than one accusation, then I think he’s gonna be given the boot, unless if public consensus leans toward them being invalid (again, I still haven’t looked into either of these accusations as I find reading about that kind of stuff to be very unnerving).

    If they do replace him, I think they could get away with an unknown, as Ziegler’s casting was well received and the show and Spielberg’s name is what’s selling the tickets, not the leads.

    If they wanted to go for an actual name, I wouldn’t mind Lucas Hedges. He’s got a likable presence, but he’s also shown himself to be good at tackling dark characters, which means he could give a decent edge to Tony. Also, while I’m not super familiar with his singing, I remember him sounding legitimately good in Lady Bird.

    Poor woman. I hope this is now investigated properly. Sadly, we don’t know if she has previously reported to police and was ignored / not followed up with as we know to be the case with so many sexual assault cases. Perhaps this was an attempt to be heard, and she is. An investigation should also clear Ansel if the accusations are found not to be credible (though I believe them to be).

    Unsure what this means for production but I have to say I’ve never enjoyed a performance of his so him being replaced would hardly be heartbreaking.

    I would just replace him at this point.

    You can “ew” all you want to, but the fact remains that in our country, people are innocent until proven guilty. Again, this girl took a screenshot out of context, posted 1 photo, and wrote a repetitive statement with no precise info yet we’re supposed to automatically believe her? Do we even know who she is? There were accusations against Oprah recently that spread like hot fire on Twitter, and guess what….it wasn’t true. But so many people were quick to condemn her without any actual proof.

    you speak like rape is easy to proove, what do you wants a video ?

    Answer this: Who is she? Where did this take place? When? How? You can’t! Because she never gave us any other information that would rightfully condemn him. All we know is that she was a 5’2, 98lbs, 17 years old girl who hit up a celebrity through DM. Then an alleged rape took place. That’s not enough to prove he’s guilty. A case like this would be thrown out of court because of a lack of precise evidence.

    Why do you care so much about the corrupt Amerikkkan court system? 98% of “accusations” are true. Women are incentivized to not come forward with their true accusations because of abuse and retraumatization at the hands of mass rape culture, which you are playing into.

    Anyway, Elgort is facing multiple accusations at this point, so now your “case” is settled. He’s guilty.

    You’re only guilty by the law. An allegation is an allegation until proven otherwise by the court.

    Harvey Weinstein & Bill Cosby are rapists.

    These are accusations. We need more information before condemning him of any crime. That’s fact.

    My whole point is that the law is broken! It is built to protect those accused, and to shame victims.

    But didn’t this same law convict Weinstein & Cosby? ….

    As much as the testimony sounds credible, there is a reason the law operates on steepest level of proof. Also there’s a difference between being a schmuck who did some inappropriate things in the past and being an abusive rapist.

    In response to the sexual assault allegations, Ansel Elgort has given us (what is supposed to be) his side of the story on Instagram.

    Lol. He talks about how distressing this is for him and then gaslights his victim.

    Disney has just made some very important updates to the release dates of a lot of their upcoming movies.

    If their current schedule changes again, West Side Story could end up getting delayed as well.
