Has this article with Tarantino defending Polanski been posted yet? Because it is extremely disturbing. From 2003 Howard Stern:

https://jezebel.com/heres-audio-of-quentin-tarantino-defending-roman-polans-1822745916

"Tarantino: No, that was not the case AT ALL. She wanted to have it and dated the guy and—

Quivers: She was 13!

Tarantino: And by the way, we’re talking about America’s morals, not talking about the morals in Europe and everything.

Stern: Wait a minute. If you have sex with a 13-year-old girl and you’re a grown man, you know that that’s wrong.

Quivers: ...giving her booze and pills...

Tarantino: Look, she was down with this."

I recently started listening to a podcast called The Canon for semi-intellectual analysis of movies on my commute. I'd only listened to newer episodes with the permanent cohost Amy Nicholson and a rotating guest host and I found it a fun, nerdy dive into movies.

I recently downloaded some older episodes that had a different format with a second permanent male host and it was unlistenable. He was completely closed to his co-host's opinions, bulldozed over interesting arguments, was insulting and egotistical and came off incredibly abrasive with no capability of self-reflection.

Then I realized it was Devin Faraci who got brought up earlier in the thread. I am completely unsurprised that the dude got accused of not respecting other people's boundaries.

Emily Ratajkowski wrote a really depressing article about male entitlement and appropriation of her body and images of it.
https://www.thecut.com/article/emily-ratajkowski-owning-my-image-essay.html

It includes a graphic account of an assault by Johnathan Leder who says this while he's photographing her:

quote:

“iCarly,” Jonathan said, smirking as he shot. Only his mouth was visible, the rest of his face eclipsed by his camera. That was the name of the Nickelodeon show I’d been on for two episodes while in high school.

Also an artist who blows up Instagram photos and sells them for tens of thousands of dollars with puerile captions.


quote:

Prince’s comment on that post, included among several others at the bottom of the painting, alludes to an imagined day he has spent with me on the beach: “U told me the truth. U lost the [anchor emoji]. No hurt. No upset. All energy bunny now that it’s sunny,” it reads. I liked the comment he left on this one far better than his comment on the black-and-white study, where he asks, “Were you built in a science lab by teenage boys?”
