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

It kinda makes me sick to my stomach. Imagine knowing that some characters you loved in your favorite series or movies are actually a sexual predator or a victim...

The odds are if you have even a solid number of favourite things from Hollywood be it movies, particular stars or anything that they're embroiled in this in some way . I think it's important to still enjoy what you enjoy though. Probably only 5% or less involved with any big Hollywood film are scumbags - the rest are just doing honest days' work etc.

I feel for all the women who actually did stand up for themselves (and the many that followed), and lived with the consequences. Those are the real victims. Those who were threatened, outlawed, ignored and failed by corrupt prosectuors, attorney´s offices and law enforcement.

After the Jimmy Saville shit came out in the UK, Elijah Wood said Hollywood was the exact same. He said think about some real fucked up shit and it probably happened.

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.

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

This kind of mess has been going on for a lot longer than Weinstein. It's been happening since the beginning of motion pictures and the desire to be a star that comes with the industry.

Anybody who wanted to be a big name had to give up poontang, dome, pipe or brown eye.

A good friend of mine who worked in the Hollywood industry told me that a certain executive used to have Marilyn Monroe come over once a week to polish his knob. Of course this was before she became the biggest starlet going.

But it's not limited to Hollywood. Old unattractive farts who couldn't get the girls when they were younger, get them when they get old, rich and powerful.

Weinstein apparently loved to parade his "perfect" body around naked in front of aspiring actresses and have them watch him masturbate. I'm sure that was exciting.

A video from the Infowars editor?

Oh God honey, no.

"Sometimes we've wondered if Martina actually knew what she was saying. Maybe it was her age or inexperience or something got lost in the translation. But I don't know. She comes out with something astounding and then just stares at you like, 'What did I say?' But then she'll have that glint in her eye."

I've never visited Infowars in case you were worried . I just found the compilation of ratings figures and polling data interesting. When it's stuff like that it doesn't really matter to me who the compiler is 'cause the outcome wouldn't differ much.

True. Now how about what many women said Trump did vs what many women said Weinstein did?

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



this couldn't be a coincidence could it? Hollywood knew all along and now they all pretended they didn't know Harvey

No wonder why the like of Rose McGowan went postal on Twitter (maybe it was her personality but still)

So if you find out that your butcher sells human body parts in his free time and that your hairstylist and broker bought some, you go back next week like nothing happened. I mean investments are going well, hair looks awesome and the steaks are well-marinated.

God bless James Corden´s naivety. Stepping onto a podium in Los Angeles and making Weinstein jokes in front of all the Hollywood A-listers that were part of or complicit in his perverted games. And Rose McGowan slams him for it. The last thing these people want is somebody constantly putting a mirror in front of their faces. They want to sweep it under the rug and keep it there.

I fucking CAN'T at people laying on Corden because he was such an easy target (and Rose McGowan went mental on James for no reason other than...HW being a close friend of James Corden? ) . As Ricky Gervais just tweeted:

Of course it's not a coincidence. 30 Rock also made a couple of remarks about Bill Cosby being a sex predator a few years before Hannibal Burress' comedy set exposing Cosby had traction.

Courtney Love also mentioned during one of the press tours for the Comedy Central roast of Pamela Anderson around 2005 that her one tip for people who wanted to make it in Hollywood was to not go to a hotel meeting with Harvey Weinstein and she prefaced that comment beforehand saying she was probably going to get libelled.

The thing now is people are gonna debate just how much they knew. A few actor/actress comments seem to focus on knowing but not knowing the full extent, hearing rumours but not knowing they were true etc..

The most crucial bit was it being the worst-attended blockbuster season in 25 years. They can't take any risks anymore hence the sequels and rehashes, but people are getting sick of that too so it's catch-22.

Also, less notably, late-night comedy and sports shows losing viewers. VMAs and Emmy's this year worst viewership ever. Apparently because their getting more political is a major factor (make of that what you will ).

If you ignore the most obvious election season fake news, what has Trump been accused of? Trying to kiss somebody? Yeah, it's bad enough if he cheats his wife but he doesn't rape or suddenly pull his dick out when hiring somebody. Not comparable to Weinstein at all.
