#MeToo: Sexual Harassment Bonanza 2017
« on: November 09, 2017, 12:43:49 PM »
Clearly the revelations fest is here to stay. Well, maybe they're not revelations, but I never read celebrity news, so when people tell me Kevin Spacey is a creep, that's news to me. There have been mentions of what's happening here and there in the boards, but there is no one thread that has become the official spot for the discussion about everything that's happening, so I thought I would just make one. This is after philip surprised me with his post about Louis CK.

I am curious to see how long this is going to keep up, and I am sort of dreading who else is going to be outed. You'll be hearing Him too? Nooo... from me I predict.

Pretty sure the first two women in the article are friends of a friend who told me about this years ago.

I mean, was this so well-known ? It's always weird to me how when these things are revealed people say "well, everybody knew". Clearly "everybody" didn't "know", or this wouldn't be a scandal ? I mean I had no idea Louis CK was that kind of guy no, and I'm curious how one was supposed to ?

There were revelations by Jen Kirkman and Tig Notaro quite some time ago. Even if you hadn't heard about those, his comic persona is such that it shouldn't be this big shocking surprise that he's kind of a creep.

Although to be honest, I'm not sure ANYONE being a creep would surprise me anymore. Fred Rogers maybe?

Fred Rogers maybe?

His sweaters were knitted with the hair of his victims.
