?Dawson?s Creek? star James Van Der Beek says male executive groped him | myfox8.com


Women aren’t the only ones compelled to share their stories in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
Actor James Van Der Beek revealed in a series of tweets that he was groped by a male executive.
The “Dawson’s Creek” star tweeted late Wednesday about Weinstein, who has been accused of raping women and harassing them. His alleged actions were detailed in two explosive stories, published in the New York Times and the New Yorker magazine.
“For anyone judging the women who stayed silent, read this for perspective,” Van Der Beek wrote. “Also for anyone brushing off harassment as ‘boys being boys.'”


“What Weinstein is being accused of is criminal,” the actor said. “What he’s admitted to is unacceptable – in any industry. I applaud everybody speaking out.”


The 40-year-old actor then added, “I’ve had my a** grabbed by older, powerful men, I’ve had them corner me in inappropriate sexual conversations when I was much younger.”
Terry Crews already spoke up about this, as well:

Year end is coming, time to expose every bad ugly sides.

Harvey has to be the most popular name in past couple years: this guy, Steve Harvey, Hurricane Harvey?

TBH I'm surprised that there's so much surprise around this. Leaving out the rape claims ( which came after he'd already been kicked out) much of it is commonly known as standard practice in Hollywood. It's stuff that's even the basis for cliches in pop culture. Again, leaving out the rape claims, there's one thing that comes across from Weinstein that I believe - to him his behavior was okay.

I don't think it is so much "surprise", per se, though it is outrage at the extent of it. Things like masturbating into a potted plant tend to have that effect.

I guess it depends on what articles and sets of comments one has read. There are many people who are surprised that "someone in his position would act like that." As for the "outrage" - spare me. 60+ million people voted for a man who boasted about grabbing women's genitals.

Though Weinstein definitely warrants coal-raking much of the "outrage" is from people with their own internalized issues over how they in subtle and not so subtle ways enable such behavior. And yeah many of those people are women.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

It has been exactly ONE YEAR since Trump 'pųssy' disclosure and we are still waiting for criticism and corrective action from the delusional far right.

Re: Harvey Weinstein Charged with Harassment, Rape, Abuse, etc.

Right wingers coming out immediately to trash Weinstein is pretty easy math. He was a huge donor to the Democratic Party. But the right-wingers response to the Predator-in-Chief, Ailes, & O'Reilly? The deafening sound of crickets.

Possible but doubtful. Either way, yes people do tend to more readily point out the failings of those in the "other party." The point is not if it takes them a week or two or three to respond with integrity. The point is whether or not they get there. In that respect liberals in this and almost all issues outshine Trumpists.

Give me a break, if this were a right winger there'd be a PI right now on every single of those women looking for dirt to discredit them. And need I remind you who is president of the United States?

Btw Clinton has denounced him too.

Re: Harvey Weinstein Charged with Harassment, Rape, Abuse, etc.

What is wrong with the USA that you all you do is judge everything on left or right wing, democrats or republicans?

Sexual abuse of men, women and children is not a political orientation, it´s a crime.
Beat, hablo, Number19 and 4 others like this.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.
