He kept repeating how his victims admired him, admitting that he abused his power while making sure everyone completely understands that he was so very much admired. Ugh. He also states that he always asked permission. Asking if it's okay while already pulling it out in front of a completely shocked person who can't possibly process what's happening fast enough to stop it? That's an absolutely pathetic excuse and is a psychological trick he was using on himself and his victims to justify his behavior. I've read worse stories than currently being reported where he (allegedly) blocked the door so the person couldn't leave without trying to physically force him out of the way. These stories have been around for years, and he has many complicit friends and colleagues who turned a blind eye because there was money to be made. So much ugh.

I don't know if Hollywood can totally eliminate freaky perverted behavior. But it needs to clean up it's act, especially when it comes to abuses of power. It feels like now every bit of dirty laundry is being aired and it will probably get worse before it gets better. It sucks when it's someone you like, like Louis CK. I hope his career isn't over because of this. But he needs to get himself straightened out & cut all this out. There also needs to be some difference between the types of behavior people are being accused of. Sending obscene texts is of course wrong but it's nowhere close to rape. And I want to leave politics out of it, but Alabama can't seriously be thinking of voting for a pedophile for Senate can they?

Tonmorrow should be an interesting morning on the old Howard Stern show. George, who is the announcer for life on Howard's show, had this exchange a few weeks ago(in C_ _ _tober, no less) and even one of the callers commented on how Howard and Robin tried desperately to get George to 'walk back' his exceptionally creepy statement. And he refused. Also, Howard is constantly saying how he has a budding friendship with Louis C.K., so we will see if he even addresses the comedian's situation.

lunchbox is so sad



This weekend, in an online post, Jesse Lacey of Brand New was accused of sexual misconduct with a minor. In the post, which has since been deleted or made private, a woman stated that when she was 15 and Lacey was 24, he asked her to send him nude photos and also made her watch him masturbate over Skype. Following that post, other women came forward with similar accusations.

The post stated, in part, "[Lacey] solicited nudes from me starting when I was 15 and he was 24. Manipulated the hell out of me, demanded specific poses/settings/clothing, demeaned me, and made it clear that my sexuality was the only thing I had to offer. I should’ve known better by then, but he had screwed me up so much psychologically that all I wanted was his approval. It ****ed me up to the point that I STILL have nightmares and wakeup in a sweat. I still breakdown and have panic attacks when people play Brand New in a bar."

Shortly thereafter, Lacey issued an apology. He stated, in part, "The actions of my past have caused pain and harm to a number of people, and I want to say that I am absolutely sorry. I do not stand in defense of myself nor do I forgive myself. I was selfish, narcissistic, and insensitive in my past, and there are a number of people who have had to shoulder the burden of my failures. I apologize for the hurt I have caused, and hope to be able to take the correct actions to earn forgiveness and trust."

The band then stated that they were canceling all future tour dates until further notice. See Lacey's full statement below.


Lacey Statement
"In an effort to address recent events and the public conversation currently happening, I feel it is important to make a clear and personal statement.

The actions of my past have caused pain and harm to a number of people, and I want to say that I am absolutely sorry. I do not stand in defense of myself nor do I forgive myself. I was selfish, narcissistic, and insensitive in my past, and there are a number of people who have had to shoulder the burden of my failures. I apologize for the hurt I have caused, and hope to be able to take the correct actions to earn forgiveness and trust.

Early on in my life, I developed a dependent and addictive relationship with sex. I was scared of it, ashamed, and unwilling or unable to admit it, and so it grew into a consistent and terrible problem. Years ago, after admitting my habits and cheating to my then soon to be wife, I began to approach my problem in a serious way. I entered professional treatment, both in group therapy and individual counseling, and revealed the realities of what a terrible place I had gotten to in my life, and what a terrible impact my actions had on people.

Lust, sex, love, and arousal were coping tools for me, and I returned to them repeatedly. I detached my own feelings and emotions from most of my sexual interactions. I hid, or lied about my behavior to escape reproach. I was a habitual cheater. I have been unfaithful in many, if not most of my relationships, including the relationship with my wife, who has with all of her might, patience, and grace, tried to hold our marriage together, despite having to endure the pain of the revelations of my past. It is heart wrenching that the most important changes in my life have come at the expense of others.

I am sorry for how I have hurt people, mistreated them, lied, and cheated. I am sorry for ignoring the way in which my position, status, and power as a member of a band affected the way people viewed me or their approach to their interactions with me. And I am sorry for how often I have not afforded women the respect, support, or honesty that they deserved, and which is their right. I believe in the equality and autonomy of all, but in my life I have been more of a detriment to these ideals than an advocate.

I am working to shed all my narcissism and my self obsession, and to be better. In sobriety I have changed my life and my mind in real and important ways. I have also revealed the truth of my behaviors to myself and to others. I do not have words to express the patience and help my wife has offered me. I love my family with an intensity and realness that I have never felt before, and as a husband and a father I have been granted the opportunity to wake up each day with the intent to serve my family and the people around me, and to feel, for the first time that I have purpose.

The fact remains that none of us get to put a wall up between who we are and who we were. I need to earn forgiveness. Concepts like repentance, compassion, and love, are made real through actions, and it’s through my actions that I need to prove change. I hope I can show humility, and that the pain I have caused people can heal. I am not above reproach, and no one should be.

Jesse Lacey"

ya. i?m not entirely shocked because i?ve heard rumors, just like i did with c.k., but reading the victims? accounts really does make me sad. so does reading some of the dialogue it?s triggered on the original facebook post where one of his accusers came out, the vinyl record board and brand new?s social media... lots of opinions on very opposite sides of the spectrum.
the chilling factor for me is that another woman?s account is a lot like one i had in the past where regardless of the manipulation, i still considered the guy i knew a friend.

people are calling jesse lacey a pedophile but i wouldn?t go to that extent. definitely a manipulative creep. such a bummer to have it confirmed.

Well, now it's personal. The Cinefamily was a beautiful throwback haven for me and Kingsqueen. So many memorable experiences over the years. And now, because of alleged predatory behavior, I have lost something that I dearly loved. It's funny how on social media apparently EVERYONE knew(of course they didn't say anything until after the legal proceedings started to occur) how there was something wrong behind the scenes...yet nobody said anything. And because it went unchecked...well, this is why we can't have nice things.

He yelled and pleaded for the girls to wait for him, but they were laughing and just kept walking away. It was obvious he was trying to pick up on them while they weren't interested.

Bourdain is a ****ing hypocrite of the first order. Spurred by his relationship with Asia Argento, who claims to have been victimized by Harvey Weinstein, Bourdain has been shouting from the rooftops at folks like Quentin Tarentino, who may or may not have overlooked Harvey's crimes.

The guy has long been a bully and holds others to a standard that he himself refuses? I get if you like the guy, but still it's indefensible.

Fair point. It's absolutely hypocritical to call someone out and then shield your friends from the same accountability. But realistically it's difficult for me to be angry over someone who's friends with a jerk. The blame is squarely on the jerks shoulders. I'm typing from more of a personal responsibility standpoint. Tony still has to look at himself in the mirror and if he's cool with standing idly by while your friends are being pigs...that's your cross to bear.

This reminds me of a quote I read in "Rant"*- "Some people are just born human. The rest of us, we take a lifetime to get there."

Stan Lee Has Been Accused Of Groping And Sexually Harassing Nurses Who Worked At His Home
http://uproxx.com/news/stan-lee-sexual-misconduct-accusations/


The mountain of sexual misconduct allegations in Hollywood (and other industries) keeps growing, months after the first bombshell report dropped on Harvey Weinstein. Comic book legend and former editor-in-chief of Marvel, Stan Lee (age 95), has now been accused of sexual misconduct against young female nurses who worked at his Hollywood home. The allegations include claims of Lee groping the women, requesting oral sex, and strolling around nude in front of them.

Lee’s attorneys have been in contact with the Daily Mail, which published the allegations on Tuesday that have not been revealed by any of the alleged victims but, instead, by an anonymous source:

“[Lee] doesn’t seem to care what people think of him, he’s lost his filter. There has been a stream of young nurses coming to his house in West Hollywood and he has been sexually harassing them. He finds it funny. He walks around naked and is vulgar towards the women, he asks them for oral sex in the shower and wants to be pleasured in his bedroom … He’s also very handsy and has groped some of the women, it’s unacceptable behavior, especially from an icon like Stan.”

The Daily Mail notes that no lawsuits or police reports have been filed by anyone accusing Lee of sexual misconduct. Further, a Lee attorney (via Page Six) has issued a denial that includes claims about threats that, if true, would amount to extortion:

“Mr. Lee categorically denies these false and despicable allegations and he fully intends to fight to protect his stellar good name and impeccable character. We are not aware of anyone filing a civil action, or reporting these issues to the police, which for any genuine claim would be the more appropriate way for it to be handled. Instead, Mr. Lee has received demands to pay money and threats that if he does not do so, the accuser will go to the media. Mr. Lee will not be extorted or blackmailed, and will pay no money to anyone because he has done absolutely nothing wrong.”

Meanwhile, the Mail’s source insists that the unspecified nursing company’s owner has “openly said to people that Stan has sexually harassed every single nurse” who has worked at his home. And Page Six notes that Lee is now using a different nursing company, which characterizes him as “polite, kind and respectful” to all of their nurses.

Keep in mind, Page 6 is about as credible as the Enquirer.

Bill And Ted? Star Alex Winter Opens Up About Being Sexually Abused As a Child
http://uproxx.com/news/bill-and-ted-alex-winter-abused-child-actor/


opening up during a recent BBC interview about how the #MeToo movement was a ?light bulb? moment for many that made it easier to share according to Deadline:

?Had I been older, had I had more resources, every victim goes through this whether they?re a child or adult rape victim, you hear this over and over again. All of that was irrelevant because I only had the resources I had and it was absolutely taboo in the popular vernaculars so I didn?t feel like I had any place of safety to unlock an extremely sensitive and potentially dangerous secret because there is a power dynamic that does put you in a place where you?re afraid for your own safety,?

He continues, praising the current climate in Hollywood and elsewhere for giving those who felt similar to him a chance to speak out without fear:

?That?s the vital importance of whatever?s going on that the moment and it?s going to keep on going is that, had I existed in a culture that?s like the one that is happening at this moment, that?s a very different culture. These sorts of things are now being spoken about, in a much more accepting way on a societal level, it gives you a lot more freedom to tell anybody because usually you?re not telling anybody. That?s a very dangerous place to be in mentally.

?I never thought in my lifetime that I would ever be? sitting here talking to a BBC radio person about my childhood sexual abuse,?

Uma Thurman says she was assaulted by Weinstein, and I'm not sure what to call what Tarantino has done to her.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/03/opinion/sunday/this-is-why-uma-thurman-is-angry.html

Tarantino needs to pay the piper. He knew about Weinstein assaulting Sorvino, he knew about McGowan (If Rose hasn't stated it, it's a safe assumption), and now it's out that he knew about Uma as well. On top of this, he stood in for Kill Bill actors when it was time to spit in Uma's face, and to choke her with a chain. It's also been said that he insistently stood in for Christoph Waltz to choke Diane Kruger in Inglourious Basterds. These pieces are making quite the sick puzzle.

Edited to add QT's response.

http://deadline.com/2018/02/quentin-tarantino-uma-thurman-harvey-weinstein-kill-bill-car-crash-new-york-times-1202278988/

He did well to wait a few days, think about it, and calmly explain his side. It seems that he was completely blind to the severity of Weinstein's actions. HW stayed away from Sorvino afterward, so he let it go. HW apologized to Uma, so he let it go. Meanwhile, these women and many others were left devastated and the rampage continued.

i post this clip to memorialize it?s full exposure in the nyt by Maureen Dowd. the circumstances of this event were negligent to the point of criminality. i do not believe though with malicious intent. Quentin Tarantino, was deeply regretful and remains remorseful about this sorry event, and gave me the footage years later so i could expose it and let it see the light of day, regardless of it most likely being an event for which justice will never be possible. he also did so with full knowledge it could cause him personal harm, and i am proud of him for doing the right thing and for his courage. THE COVER UP after the fact is UNFORGIVABLE. for this i hold Lawrence Bender, E. Bennett Walsh, and the notorious Harvey Weinstein solely responsible. they lied, destroyed evidence, and continue to lie about the permanent harm they caused and then chose to suppress. the cover up did have malicious intent, and shame on these three for all eternity. CAA never sent anyone to Mexico. i hope they look after other clients more respectfully if they in fact want to do the job for which they take money with any decency. o

The Stunt Coordinator From ‘Kill Bill’ Speaks Out About Uma Thurman’s Crash: ‘At No Point Was I Notified Or Consulted’

I love QT, but this is really not making him look good. It doesn't sound malicious...but it was a different outcome away from being the whole Landis Twilight Zone incident. I do think it was the work of someone who wanted what they wanted and nobody said no. So, in a roundabout way it is about power in Hollywood. And it all seems so pointless. That scene could have been done so many other ways. But budgets, schedules...whatever. Very irresponsible, almost criminally so. Disappointing.

It seems that the #metoo (http://letsgokings.com/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=metoo) movement has ceased to be interesting to folks, as far as being shocked anymore. Hopefully, and I apologize if I am wrong or indelicate in my theory, but I think we need to stop assuming that the victims are telling the truth. You have two former child actors, in Eggert, someone who has chased elusive fame for years...and, let's be honest, is questionable as far as credibility. Baio is very unlikable...but that does not mean he is guilty. I am a little surprised that he has not initiated a defamation lawsuit, but it bears watching.

Yes, this one is very sketchy but I find it odd that no one from the show has defended him. It's also odd that only one person so far has corroborated the alleged behavior. Willie Aames used to always be thirsty for attention, so I'm shocked that he hasn't chimed in one way or another on this.

David Schwimmer, David Arquette, And Other Hollywood Men Launch The #AskMoreOfHim (http://letsgokings.com/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=AskMoreOfHim) Movement
https://uproxx.com/news/askmoreofhim-movement-hollywood-oscars/


As men, we have a special responsibility to prevent abuse from happening in the first place. After all, the vast majority of sexual harassment, abuse, and violence is perpetrated by men, whether in Hollywood or not. And in entertainment — like many industries — men continue to hold most of the decision-making power. Therefore, one of the most powerful things that men can and must do is make it clear to other men — including their friends, colleagues, and co-workers — that sexual harassment and abuse are never acceptable. This goes for everything from sexist and degrading comments, right up to domestic violence and sexual assault.

Some may question our motives for signing this statement and we aim to counteract their skepticism by being painfully honest. Men are imperfect. We are imperfect. And many men, including perhaps some of us, may have enabled the bad behavior of others or acted in ways we now regret. Nonetheless, we believe that men must speak out against sexism, even as we engage in our own process of critical self-reflection, personal growth, and accountability.

So consider this our pledge to support survivors, condemn sexism wherever we see it, and hold ourselves and others accountable. As advocates, actors, writers, producers, and directors, we hope that our actions will inspire other men to join us. Until now, only a small number of them have been actively engaged in this effort. This must change. It’s time we #AskMoreOfHim (http://letsgokings.com/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=AskMoreOfHim) .

Ok. Nice, I guess. But all these hashtag movements don't really change anything, do they? I would suggest an Academy Awards drinking game where you have to drink whenever a 'Girl Power' mention is made...but I like you guys, mostly, and don't want you to die of alcohol poisoning.

Female Crew Member Leaves Stranger Things Alleging the Duffer Brothers Were “Verbally Abusing Multiple Women”
https://www.themarysue.com/stranger-things-duffer-brothers-women/

This is a good article...facts presented well...

And then



While Brown seems to regret naming them publicly, I’m glad she did. This whole Time’s Up movement doesn’t work unless we collectively start being braver, bolstered by each other’s support, when speaking out about abuses. There has already been too much secrecy surrounding so much abuse in Hollywood.

Naming names publicly to warn others is often the only way to do anything about abusive behavior at all in an industry that grants men (*cough*David O. Russell*cough*) free pass after free pass and in cases where legal recourse for behavior like this isn’t an option.

She automatically assumes that the accusation is true. And begins to editorialize in the middle of an article. Even more troubling is this is from the Mary Sue, which, if I am not mistaken, is a 'geek girl power' website. No objectivity. An immediate visceral reaction followed by negative reinforcement.

At the risk of sounding like an apologist(which I am not, if they are guilty, hang em) is there going to be a heightened sensitivity to the point that people are no longer going to be able to chastise an employee(in the case where it is warranted) for fear of it being confused or turned around into a harassment claim. There really needs to be some vetting of these accusers before we all automatically assume they are telling THE truth, not just THEIR truth. It's just become too easy to cry wolf. And NO, I am not standing up for the guilty, but the unjustly accused...yeah. Not saying that applies to this case, just saying.

Terry Gilliam Equates The #MeToo (http://letsgokings.com/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=MeToo) Movement To ‘Mob Rule’ And Blasts Harvey Weinstein’s Accusers
https://uproxx.com/news/terry-gilliam-metoo-mob-rule/

The headline is misleading. Gilliam is known to be a little salty, and while his comments are a little bit of an over simplification, they are not without merit.


“It’s crazy how simplified things are becoming. There is no intelligence anymore and people seem to be frightened to say what they really think. Now I am told even by my wife to keep my head a bit low,” he told the press outlet in Paris. “It’s like when mob rule takes over, the mob is out there they are carrying their torches and they are going to burn down Frankenstein’s castle.” As for his comments about Weinstein, who he said “is an ******* and he made so many enemies,” Gilliam’s opinions took a far darker turn:

“It is a world of victims. I think some people did very well out of meeting with Harvey and others didn’t. The ones who did knew what they were doing. These are adults, we are talking about adults with a lot of ambition.

“Harvey opened the door for a few people, a night with Harvey — that’s the price you pay… Some people paid the price, other people suffered from it.”

It hurts me to post this. In fairness...he has yet to respond.

I've been a bit of a fan, too, so I'd be really interested in seeing that response. It's gotta come at some point, and soon.




That being said, there are two things that this situation brought immediately to mind:

1) In his stand-up, he's told a story about a girlfriend he had who was way younger than him. She got them these onesie pajamas with animal heads and tails, and there was a humorous anecdote about a fainting dog and a pizza guy. I think it's a safe assumption that Ms. Dykstra, known for her cosplay and other nerdy tendencies, was that girlfriend.

2) Hardwick seems to have it in him to be pretty hard on things he doesn't enjoy or is not interested in. And he can be a little bit of a dick about it. I say that because of the way I've seen and heard him discuss certain topics, like sports. He makes no secret that he was never into sports, never liked them, and in the things I've seen, he has little time or respect for them. When sports happened to be a pop-culture or trending topic, his comments were often about how everyone else was into "sportsball" and the tone was pretty dismissive or superior. A few years ago, he was talking about some changes Nerdist was making and that he grudgingly felt like he had to create a sports beat, because apparently other people were into stuff like that. Now that is a faaaaaaaaaaaar cry from what is being laid at his feet today, obviously. But for glimpses of that attitude and how that could be extrapolated... I hear this and I'm very surprised, but I'm not exactly shocked. Nor do I find this completely unimaginable.

I had a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooong discussion about this today, and I made it quite clear that I don't to discuss it any further. He made his statement, and it furthers my belief that what she said happened, happened. It was a non-denial denial and the "she wanted to have my babies" garbage at the end was pretty shi*ty.

Also, this is from her current boyfriend Robert Kazinsky: "As @hardwick has chosen to deny Chloe?s account, I?ll take the opportunity to say I have seen the proof myself, I have seen the evidence first hand, I?ve seen the people who have come forward to tell @skydart how Chris ordered her blacklisted, there isn?t just one, there are many"

When his statement said she cheated, and that he broke up with her and she wanted to have his babies, he completely lost me. Those things have nothing to do with the allegations, and that is exactly a thing that psychological abusers do, which is tear others down to make themselves look better. If he had taken the high road I would have gladly reserved judgment until the allegations were corroborated or not, but he exposed his bad side so gets no benefit of the doubt from me. Whatever the truth is about their personal relationship, he deserves to lose his gigs if he had her blacklisted. That is an evil, power tripping, psychotic thing to do.

While I agree with you on the blacklisting, I am perplexed as to why his statements are being condemned without examination. If his side of the story is true, then it could very well show that she has a potential axe to grind. And, once again, if true and she did cheat...it shows that she may not have been the caged bird she is claiming to be. ONCE AGAIN, before you sharpen the axe...I do not know what happened between them. I don't dismiss her claims. AT ALL. But I won't dismiss his either. I wouldn't be surprised to see they are both telling some form of the truth. I think the pendulum has swung way too far in the opposite direction as far as AUTOMATICALLY believing the alleged victim. I really don't think you can erase one injustice by creating another. And I reserve the right to hold my opinion until someone verifies their claim. I find the internet's hanging mentality to be all pitchforks and torches, and anyone who preaches for caution is immediately gangjumped as a 'victim shamer', 'rape culture apologist' etc. The folks who are saying she has nothing to gain...that's simply not true. In a turbulent relationship there is motive to hurt someone you once loved. So yeah, coming out with this a week before his show was going to return, and 30 some odd days before Comic Con was meant for maximum exposure. These are all facets of the case. I am not claiming to KNOW. I just think that we have to get back to a more impartial way of looking at things. I still am unsure what happened here, and we may never really know. This guilty until proven innocent thing is a scary proposition. As someone who suffered at the hands of an ex's lies, I can honestly tell you a false accusation that you cannot disprove is potentially life changing. We need to be careful going down that road.

While I agree with you on the blacklisting, I am perplexed as to why his statements are being condemned without examination. If his side of the story is true, then it could very well show that she has a potential axe to grind. And, once again, if true and she did cheat...it shows that she may not have been the caged bird she is claiming to be. ONCE AGAIN, before you sharpen the axe...I do not know what happened between them. I don't dismiss her claims. AT ALL. But I won't dismiss his either. I wouldn't be surprised to see they are both telling some form of the truth. I think the pendulum has swung way too far in the opposite direction as far as AUTOMATICALLY believing the alleged victim. I really don't think you can erase one injustice by creating another. And I reserve the right to hold my opinion until someone verifies their claim. I find the internet's hanging mentality to be all pitchforks and torches, and anyone who preaches for caution is immediately gangjumped as a 'victim shamer', 'rape culture apologist' etc. The folks who are saying she has nothing to gain...that's simply not true. In a turbulent relationship there is motive to hurt someone you once loved. So yeah, coming out with this a week before his show was going to return, and 30 some odd days before Comic Con was meant for maximum exposure. These are all facets of the case. I am not claiming to KNOW. I just think that we have to get back to a more impartial way of looking at things. I still am unsure what happened here, and we may never really know. This guilty until proven innocent thing is a scary proposition. As someone who suffered at the hands of an ex's lies, I can honestly tell you a false accusation that you cannot disprove is potentially life changing. We need to be careful going down that road.

Bro, you know I love you...

He hasn't denied a single accusation other than saying he didn't sexually assault her. Never said he didn't blacklist her. Never said he didn't yell at her in private for talking to other people. Never denied telling her she couldn't go out without him when they were at a convention. Literally hasn't said anything other than he denies sexually assaulting her. Here's the thing though, that's just ONE of the allegations. The one that he can hide behind and say, "well I didn't think she was upset by it." The only one where she can't prove she was crying when he was trying to pressure her into having sex with him.

He did these things. He was, at the very least, emotionally and psychologically abusing her. At the very worst, he was also sexually abusing her. If he didn't he'd have said so. Time to move on. He's not worth it just because he made us laugh at SDCC or on TV.

We had this conversation ad nauseum. Maybe you're right. But you made up your mind before even hearing his statement. And you were just waiting to hear that so you could dismiss it. Maybe he prioritized the sexual assault because that was the accusation that truly horrified him. I DON'T KNOW. And neither do you. I find it troubling that you aren't even a little impartial. From the jump you committed. And that's too cavalier for me. It isn't even about Hardwick for me anymore. It's the process that I have trouble with. You are making a leap based entirely in emotion. It's an overreaction and its frightening to me that this seems to be the model moving forward.

I really think you oughtta excuse yourself from jury service in the future...


EDIT: Yes, I was the person SK mentioned at first. We literally spent the whole day discussing. So, beyond this...would just cause friction between us, and not the good kind. I'd like to think I gave you something to think about...and I hope my questioning was not taken as any kind of sleight to victims everywhere. so, that's about all I wanna say about that.


p.s. sorry about that friction double entendre and possible assumptions implied...I forgot where I was.

Bobcat Goldthwait Asks Disney To Remove His Voice From A Theme Park Attraction In Protest Of James Gunn?s Firing
https://uproxx.com/hitfix/bobcat-goldthwait-disney-protest-james-gunn-firing/


I love @jamesgunn. He?s a loyal friend, super talented, passionate and kind. I wanted to say something, here it is:

Dear @disney, I would hate for you to come off as hypocritical so I?m suggesting that you remove my voice from an attraction that?s coming to your park. It?s called WORLD OF COLOR ? VILLAINOUS, and I reprise the role of Pain, a role I played in HERCULES. You see here?s the deal, years ago I made a lot of sarcastically shocking and offensive jokes. Many that I?m embarrassed about now, and I?d hate to make you guys look bad seeing that I?m openly critical of the president and his administration, and you seem to be taking your lead from some of his radical fringe supporters. I think James Woods may have recorded a voice for this new attraction, too.

Why not check out some of his whacky past tweets?! They?re a hoot! For the record I do stand with survivors of sexual abuse and I was wondering if you guys are still making money off of your movie POWDER? Asking for a friend. Thanks, Bobcat

I have no issues with people being punished by private employers for their horrible words and/or actions, but this James Gunn situation is really ****ty. His tweets were gross and NOT funny, but Disney was aware of the tweets and he apologized for them YEARS AGO. And Disney was fine with it!

For them to suddenly change their minds and fire him now is absolutely ridiculous. If new allegations from years past had surfaced, then I'd get it. If he posted these tweets last week then yes, I would 100% support Disney's action on this, but that's not what happened. I really hope he gets re-hired.

"I have said what I wanted to say on the matter, and I wish to move on with my life. For that reason, I chose not to participate in the investigation against the person I spoke of.

Odd, Miss Dykstra has been very active on the Twitter today. That's after she said "she wasn't looking for an eye for an eye" type justice. Ok. So she chose to NOT co-operate with any of the investigations that were initiated. Fine. Still feel like she has a point to make, then initiate charges. Anything else feels a little disingenuous. You can't keep trying him in the court of public opinion if you aren't going to prove it/substantiate your claims.

JD: Perhaps this is an oversimplification but it could be that she does not have the means to hire an attorney and spend eight to ten grand to prove her ex is kind of dick. Sorry, alleged dick. So the court of public opinion is her only option. Just something to consider.

Fair point, but I am pretty sure she could find an attorney, especially a Gloria Allred type, who would take the case. And, if she was lacking in funds, she has had more than ample opportunity to back up her claims. To keep saying she isn't trying to punish him, while continuing to rehash the same vague threats isn't really helping her credibility. I'm not saying she doesn't have proof, but if you aren't going to share it you can't keep holding it over his head. And I know...there is at least one person out there who considers my opinion is 'victim shaming', so I should probably quit while I am ahead.

What party?

Hmmm. Welp maybe this is a non confrontational way dealing with this situation but I am taking the broad view. We are on the cusp of social change so evidence of all indiscretions big and small are important to the cause for perspective sake. It can't all be a bad guy that raped models with the promise of jobs. There has to be the petty cases as well, my girlfriend cheated on me, boom, blackballed. Maybe you can view Chris' case like one of those criminally brilliant crime dramas from the 70's everybody's dirty, wrong and petty but there is still an injustice. Yes, yes?

As far as her motives, actors run a little shall we say thirsty so if i understand social media* that's where people get hydrated. So perhaps her re-engaging in the "debate" is being unable to turn down that social media attention. Compulsion and whatnot.

The 'victim shaming' label seems harsh but that person absolutely knows you better than I and out of context it is difficult to decipher. So if it really bothers you i guess ask them to expand on their thoughts and see how they got there.

*resident weirdo: not on social media.

Chloe Dykstra Comments on Possible Litigation Regarding Chris Hardwick Allegations
http://comicbook.com/thewalkingdead/2018/08/10/chloe-dykstra-statement-chris-hardwick-litigation/


remember, she isn't an 'eye for an eye' kinda gal

God forbid this was one of your family members Chris Hardwick may have crushed professionally and personally.
I don't get the feeling this is a 'sour grapes' (for lack of a better term) smear.
I get that you like Chris, but damn man. . . what if everything she has said is true?
In a world that has historically sided with the offender in cases like this, I am very willing to allow some leeway in the case of the accuser until we can bring to light what has truly happened.
(also, I listened to Hardwick's Nerdist interviews over the last few years while commuting to work in Chicago. I find his 'some day I could be a dad' reasoning to be off-putting at best and possibly damning at worst. I would like to see everyone put on the sidelines and all of this figured out)

Maybe. I would probably be shaken and maybe a bit illogical for quite a while if I were a person put in this circumstance.
We can agree that the James Gunn firing is complete bull**** though.

And what if everything she said is a lie? What if it were a family member of yours who was falsely accused. This rush to judgement is dangerous. Yes, victims need to be protected. But not at the cost of innocent people. I could go into all my reasons for feeling she is less than truthful, but why? You have your opinion, I have mine. WITHOUT PROOF as useless as male nipples. She was asked to co-operate with multiple investigations, she refused...as she was 'not protected'. Fine. Then lawyer up and present your evidence. Otherwise, don't claim to not be trying to punish him, meanwhile you keep threatening to expose him over and over again. If she has proof, it shouldn't be that hard to back up her claims. And, if true, I will be the first to apologize. It's just time to show her hand . Look, everytime someone makes one of these claims, there should automatically be a police investigation, with consequences for the guilty. I just can't abide the international court of Twitter. It's madness.

The world is a sadder place today. And the joke of it...Disney is still going to use James Gunn's script. So...not only do they turn their back on a passionate team member, who, let's be honest, gave the Marvel movies the boost, and credibility they needed. He feverishly promoted...and put everything into his project. So his reward...a kick to the curb, and oh, btw...we are going to complete your vision, just without you. So, the misguided a-holes that prompted this will still be pissed. And the FANS, who spoke very clearly about what they wanted...well, **** all them. They will buy anything we sell. Feige is complicit. ****ing toady who still wants to lick bootheel despite OWNING his job. I will be honest, since Guardians and Gunn are soooooo personal to me. I may not post Marvel news for a while...if ever again. I cannot promote a company that takes the cowards way out. I will finish with A4:Infinity War 2, but...that may very well be my last Marvel movie. Shameful and tragic.

Odd, Miss Dykstra has been very active on the Twitter today. That's after she said "she wasn't looking for an eye for an eye" type justice. Ok. So she chose to NOT co-operate with any of the investigations that were initiated. Fine. Still feel like she has a point to make, then initiate charges. Anything else feels a little disingenuous. You can't keep trying him in the court of public opinion if you aren't going to prove it/substantiate your claims.

I'm sure she's getting a ton of people online, like you, but on her actual accounts, who are making these "Prove it! Or just shut up and leave our boy alone!" demands.

If she wanted to make a bigger deal of this whole thing, she probably could. If she has incriminating evidence on him and she wanted to, she probably could. She's not out there complaining about how he still has jobs or is back on the Nerdist masthead. She's not organizing boycotts. She seems okay with letting him come back and do his thing.

She wanted the ordeal off her chest. She felt like she needed to air it out the way she did in order to move on. She didn't feel like she needed to cooperate with any investigation to get him fired. Especially one that might compromise her legally. But when HardBoys come at her saying she should be sued or something (that lying b***), she just pipes up and says, "He's welcome to if he feels like he needs to, but I have the goods on him, so best we just go our separate ways and let this one go."

Remember, she also says he got her blackballed and cost her work once they ended. So, in her mind, he can be at least a little vindictive.


So she's not holding it over his head like a sword. She's showing that she has a shield.

In your scenario, you are assuming she is at least telling a partial truth. In which case all your arguments are sound. In my scenario, where I question her 'truth'...the current state of 'if you post it, they will believe you' on Twitter allows her to constantly give people a reason to continue to assume guilt. Trial by social media is becoming an alternative to actually having to prove anything. If you have ever been falsely accused...well, it would give you a different perspective.

Okay, so let me ask you this: What makes you question her trustworthiness?

Nothing from her essay is being outright refuted or disproved. Hardwick's seemingly not fighting it outwardly. His response didn't cover a lot of her claims. And she, for her part, is not actively going after him. She said she wanted to say it for her own reasons, she did, and now she's walking away.

Is she getting new jobs? Doing tons of interviews? Writing a book about it? The only things I'm hearing is that Hardwick is slowly coming back.



I get the false accusations thing. I do. I wouldn't want to walk around with it. But why would she say it? Especially knowing that to this point, this may be the most noteworthy thing she's known for among the broadest audience?

Again, I'm weird. I can see a scenario where they're both telling the truth. The way this is playing out reinforces my scenario. And, in the end, Hardwick looks like he's gonna be fine.

I have learned to keep my arguments to myself...no point in discussing. Nothing personal, I have just had too many 'hot' conversations about it. I think it's a little cavalier to say he is gonna be ok. Look, he has worked tirelessly to establish his 'brand' and while this lingers it still does damage. Like I said, if you had ever been falsely accused of something you would have an idea of the toll it exacts. I have no idea what the truth is. I just know that until someone takes someone to task for the wild west lack of responsibility on Twitter we are going to keep sliding down a slippery slope.
