No touching! - sexual impropriety thread

Post by the innominate one » 15 Nov 2017, 20:23

I thought maybe we could consolidate the Weinstein, Moore, Spacey, etc. discussions.



edited to add:

NYT article keeping a running track of the high-profile sexual misconduct allegations from Weinstein going forward:

Those clips always make me wonder whether it was really a bad thing that I drifted away from TV in the Aughts.

Almost none of Arrested Development works in context-free clips. They sometimes put bits of the setup for a joke into two or three episodes before the payoff.

Which I belatedly realized in the other thread.

(Not that it stops the clips. The only one that I've seen that actually worked by itself was the "analrapist" one.)

There's a new accusation against Moore. A woman who engaged his services as a lawyer to have her mother designated her son's legal guardian claims that Moore grabbed her ass. She was in her late 20s. This is the first allegation of impropriety by Moore after he was married.

Yet more Moore allegations:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/investig ... ce9058016e

He is alleged to have called a girl at her high school to follow up for a date.

Also, DC comics has fired one of their editors for harassment.

https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/11/14/b ... oogle.com/

Kevin Spacey is up to 15 accusers.

I think we need a round-up just for Moore. How many accusations actually involve adult victims? :P

Berganza had been a thing for DC for awhile. They'd given him the Superman books and actually kept any women from working on those titles, so that he wouldn't get into any trouble.

You're hoping, or have there been rumors and innuendos, db?

Thanks. Brett Ratner has also been accused of harassment and general assholery.

This, I expect a sideshow, maybe censures, followed by re-elections.
