    Time and Patience for their hiring of a known harasser? Uh huh...

    No wonder Time's Up thought they were looking for an organization for cover.

    Comedy can both get away with a lot and not have a big impact because viewers assume most of it is pretty exaggerated (and most of it is so what isn't isn't particularly noticed).

    Kelly did outright face prosecutions at that time, both that happening and fellow celebrities not assuming he must be guilty feels oddly both appropriate and weird. Of course a lot of celebrities get tabloid-accused of illicit sex (although usually consensual and with adults) all the time so it makes sense they would be doubtful of other accusations.

    I don't think there's a really clear answer to what either other singers/actors, companies or audiences should do in response to accusations, it's easy to yell Boycott but that's demanding a lot especially when abuses are widespread. The main problem with not boycotting is that the accused would keep being rich.

    There's tons of victim-blaming even in places like Italy too. A bunch of Italian women in the film industry criticized those who spoke out about sexual harassment.

    As ass backward as we can be here in the USA at times, when it comes to female rights the rest of the gang don't exactly have their houses in order.

    And in disappointing news, Brad Bird has come out in defense of John Lassetter.

    Brad Bird on ‘Incredibles 2’ and John Lasseter’s Redemption

    I can completely understand his complicated views. And how he could still be friends with him. But, it veers way too much in not actually understanding what the issue with Lassetter was. Essentially the definition of privilege. I didn't experience it, so it didn't happen.

    We see it all the time with people who can't reconcile the good person they know with the abusive and terrible person other people know.

    He's trying to defend his friend but he's ignoring the harm he caused.

    I saw that earlier and given who it is I tend to think it is probably true. Someone with his history being violent with a woman is no surprise.

    Luckily her phone was recording the rape. But I'm sure there will still be those that say she's lying because...she's a woman? I dunno. Whatever excuse they come up with.

    I don’t know why it took so long for Singer’s downfall to happen. I mean just last December he was being sued for rape and it hardly was a big deal at all. I hope this means Singer never works in Hollywood again, but given what we’ve seen over the last few months I’m not totally optimistic that Singer will finally get his just deserts over this.
    The best that can happen now is that he no longer attached to direct that Red Sonja film(and that will happen).

    His downfall hasn't happened yet and I'm not holding my breath. We've gotten this whole "Bryan Singer underage sex scandal exposed" headline multiple times before and then he keeps getting big gigs.

    ^Probably because there previously have been so many scandals, accusations and lawsuits and none of the lawsuits succeeded.
