I also feel like people can be bigger superfans of musicians than of actors/directors/producers. Like yeah Kevin Spacey has been in a lot of good movies, but nobody is going to go to bat for him like they would for, say, David Bowie. Maybe it's because music is a lot more of a personal statement, and thus a better representation of that person, than acting, which has an inherent element of fakeness to it? I dunno, but the sentimentality around even the most mediocre of musicians will shield them in ways that very few actors can ever achieve.

The Simpsons and Futurama still seem safe from shittiness? I mean, along these dimensions I guess. It's Always Sunny also seems pretty low key, which is kinda weird considering the material.

Add Parks and Rec to the RIP list, too, although I guess that started by hiring Rob Lowe. The Office is half-tainted since one of their biggest moments (Jim and Pam's wedding) uses a Chris Brown song very prominently. I believe this was even after the Rihanna stuff.

This is the only thing I can think of: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/heidi-fleiss-her-arrest-macaw-cause-drug-addict-tom-sizemore-1117449

quote:

How are things with your ex-boyfriend Tom Sizemore, convicted of abusing you in 2003?

We had done those drug addiction shows together — Dr. Drew. Afterward we were friendly and he'd call me every now and then. He'd act like he had his stuff together. But it was all a lie. Everything is a lie. I brought him to a Humane Society event at Paramount Studios last year. He was just such a mess. So out of it. He stole money from my purse. He's such a drug addict because he's so afraid of being fat.

Fat?

Yes. He once did some movie with Will Smith, Enemy of the State, where he was, like, 280 pounds. I like a heavyset guy. But he is so afraid of being fat. That's what his addiction is about. It's all narcissism. It's gross. I guess after #MeToo, some reporters were calling me about Tom touching a prepubescent girl — like an 11‑year‑old little girl — inappropriately. I don’t know what to say. I don't know if that really happened. If it did, he should be castrated. That is so disgusting to me.

Did he ever show signs of that when you were together?

No. He liked horse porn, though. He did like horse porn. This one woman that would have sex with a horse on the internet, he told me that’s his favorite actress. "Better than Meryl Streep."

Chloe Dykstra posted an essay about emotional and sexual abuse while in a relationship with a fairly well-known Hollywood person. She doesn't name him but it's super incredibly obvious if you even follow nerd poo poo a little bit, and he's still growing in stature in Hollywood so his power-tripping has probably only gotten worse since the two broke up.

For people who aren't into nerd poo poo, it's probably about Chris Hardwick. gently caress being coy.

Edit: Just realized that the nerd backlash against her is going to be harsh :( God I hope she has a really great support network. gently caress that guy.

So then... what's the statute of limitations on saying that sort of poo poo? If he'd made those tweets today, people would call for his head, sure. How much time has to pass?

I mean generally one's present actions tend to reflect the kind of person they are, but I guess since people find comfort in numbers instead of exercising any sort of common sense, self reflection, and own judgments, let's put the threshold at 5.3 years (95% CI ± 0.6).
