I don't get the point of the Jessica Alba one. They had a consenting relationship, the guy was a bit creepy due to the age difference but that's it. Am I missing something? The headline makes it sound like he's raping virgins but as far as I can tell they were just a couple...

Alba didn't even say anything negative about him?

18 year olds can't consent.

They can only do war, gambling and smoking. Smoking with consent of parents. Or someone who is 21.

Very funny people will make you laugh, even if you don't want to. That's what being very funny is.

His tv show was well above par.

The part about not wanting to date a fat girl was interesting because well she spelled it out and he was just like 'huh'

Nevertheless he did something that if you do it on the streets of New Orleans or New York you will be classified as a sexual predator

which is not that funny

I'm just going to try to reiterate Louis CK is a scumbag and a monster

The show he did was great and his stand up act about white privilege was really honest

I do not support his return to public life or w/e

He should be held accountable

it was a drat good show though

Maybe writing herself as his rape victim was a way of outing him or mocking him? I dunno. Writing in a rape scene for yourself is creepy and weird as hell.

This describes most of Louis CK's body of work but it seemed like a commentary rather than a biography, until it wasn't.

Louis CK was actually one of my favorite comedians ever before all this poo poo became publicized and he became a giant loving reactionary baby about it. He sucks and it won't be the first time I have to give up on a performer or show I really liked (Bill Cosby: Himself is one of my favorite standup shows). :shrug: Life goes on. You don't get a pass because you are a great writer or performer.

I should probably give up on performers who are scientology cultists as well, as some of them like Tom Cruise are very powerful within that organization and likely have done stuff as bad or worse that will never become public because they're ten times as powerful as either of those comedians.

This is basically my take as well.

All those accusations disappeared quietly and were in all likelihood false. The account was deemed extremely fake and lots of crew chimes in to be like “this mysterious blonde woman who grooms groupies for Maynard doesn’t exist or at least none of sound/lighting/tech people have any idea who you’re talking about” then rolling stone supposedly got in touch with them but it was over a year ago.

God Hole posted:

we're specifically citing incidents that showcase his level of intelligence between the time he got big and before metoo.

you raise a point that I hear a lot though, and imo is a bit disingenuous. He committed the acts in question, masturbating in front of people under circumstances of dubious consent, arguably when he was still green in the industry and unaware of the power dynamics in play. Whether someone can still be considered "guilty" years later of transgressions like that, when they didn't "know better" is still within a grey area as far as the court of public opinion goes.

What really sinks his ship though, is his continual denial and denigration of his accusers, and their subsequent career destruction, which was still occurring long past the point where it's been established he "knew better". They were denied any kind of catharsis during that decade where Louis CK became a millionaire comedy mogul and household name.

I really dislike this post because it seems to accurately describe what the situation is. And I'm still a huge fan. Or I was, whichever.

As much as rapists and predators are terrible people, there’s a real witch-hunt feeling the way people go after their friends and family when these things go public that I find really distasteful and kind of disturbing. You can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep, true, but nobody knows anybody else 100%.

I read the article about the Apt Pupil set incident, and I couldn’t finish it. I know how that kid felt, and it was too much to take.

I saw that movie as a child myself. It was dark.

From Stephen King's real weird period.

I don't even know what the set incident was and almost certainly don't want to.

Accusations like these are probably a lot more damaging to actors than behind-the-scenes people. You can't watch a Kevin Spacey film without being reminded of his crimes, but how many people even know Bohemian Rhapsody was directed by Singer?

It's funny that this all, sort of, goes back to Weinstein who wasn't the first or the last just a first big splash in the pool. And most filmgoers couldn't tell you what he did other than have a private casting couch.

In Savile’s case, IIRC, even Maggie Thatcher was mentioned, pretty much confirming she was a poo poo-tier garbage person.

The thing about Savile was the extreme nature of what he did.

Putting the iron lady on the list is wow, okay. poo poo. But raping kids in a hospital and even the morgue that guy was a piece of work.

Vagabundo posted:

While there's no specific evidence to suggest Thatcher was involved in Savile's, uh, hobbies and interests, it's possible or even likely that she was at least vaguely aware of it, and it's not implausible that her estate has gone some lengths to covering it up - the redacting of documents requested by Operation Yewtree does not reflect favourably in this context and it is now known that she was warned by the honours committee about his lifestyle but nevertheless continued to lobby for him to get a knighthood. That said, she was racist scum, so I admit I am quick to assume the worst about that piece of loving poo poo.
