Pam Anderson is bros with Julian Assange, which is the sort of "hyper-woke" that leads people to voting for the green party not out of distrust for Hillary Clinton/dislike of the democratic party, but because she really resonated with Jill Stein

I'd figure the more pertinent part of that is that he's got some feelings about being charged with rape anyway. I mean, as I see it, it was rape to slip off a condom during sex without telling his partner or just plain have sex with them while asleep after being denied but I'd bet he disagrees with me and has been talking about such things with Ms. Anderson.

On the one hand I agree with the accountability but on the other hand his attorneys are going to be giant shitheads on cross examination of the victims. Whatever happens I just hope they get some closure because jesus christ the charges are horrible.

Wtf? Was West accused of sexual assault? I thought his only issue is mental illness which isn’t remotely comparable to Kelly.

So why not compare R Kelly with musicians who are known child mollesters, like Bowie, Paige, Jagger, etc.

R Kelly's not even a rapper, he's an R&B singer, which makes your comparison even more irrelevant.

I mean, we all get the implication in your post, why feign ignorance when called out on it?

Kanye, first and foremost, is a dumb guy who likes attention. That can lead someone to accidentally stumble across a correct opinion such as Bush not caring about black people.

I'm not going to say he's a good guy, but he's not grooming and raping and basically imprisoning underage girls and keeping them from their families.

Emma Thompson has dropped out of Skydance Animation's "Luck" in response to Skydance hiring John Lasseter https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/emma-thompson-exits-skydances-luck-john-lasseter-hire-1187303

Letter sent to Skydance, with a copy shared to the LA Times https://www.latimes.com/entertainment/la-et-mn-emma-thompson-john-lasseter-skydance-20190226-story.html

quote:

As you know, I have pulled out of the production of “Luck” — to be directed by the very wonderful Alessandro Carloni. It feels very odd to me that you and your company would consider hiring someone with Mr. Lasseter’s pattern of misconduct given the present climate in which people with the kind of power that you have can reasonably be expected to step up to the plate.

I realise that the situation — involving as it does many human beings — is complicated. However these are the questions I would like to ask:

If a man has been touching women inappropriately for decades, why would a woman want to work for him if the only reason he’s not touching them inappropriately now is that it says in his contract that he must behave “professionally”?
If a man has made women at his companies feel undervalued and disrespected for decades, why should the women at his new company think that any respect he shows them is anything other than an act that he’s required to perform by his coach, his therapist and his employment agreement? The message seems to be, “I am learning to feel respect for women so please be patient while I work on it. It’s not easy.”
Much has been said about giving John Lasseter a “second chance.” But he is presumably being paid millions of dollars to receive that second chance. How much money are the employees at Skydance being paid to GIVE him that second chance?
If John Lasseter started his own company, then every employee would have been given the opportunity to choose whether or not to give him a second chance. But any Skydance employees who don't want to give him a second chance have to stay and be uncomfortable or lose their jobs. Shouldn’t it be John Lasseter who has to lose HIS job if the employees don’t want to give him a second chance?
Skydance has revealed that no women received settlements from Pixar or Disney as a result of being harassed by John Lasseter. But given all the abuse that’s been heaped on women who have come forward to make accusations against powerful men, do we really think that no settlements means that there was no harassment or no hostile work environment? Are we supposed to feel comforted that women who feel that their careers were derailed by working for Lasseter DIDN’T receive money?

I hope these queries make the level of my discomfort understandable. I regret having to step away because I love Alessandro so much and think he is an incredibly creative director. But I can only do what feels right during these difficult times of transition and collective consciousness raising.
I am well aware that centuries of entitlement to women’s bodies whether they like it or not is not going to change overnight. Or in a year. But I am also aware that if people who have spoken out — like me — do not take this sort of a stand then things are very unlikely to change at anything like the pace required to protect my daughter’s generation.

Yours most sincerely,

Emma Thompson
