I’m sure someone is.
I lose respect for any actors I see in his movies. I don’t give a single fuck how awesome of an artist he is. He is a rapist. I don’t give a shit that it was well over two decades ago. This is how my mind goes when you mention his name: Rapist, criminal, asshole. Oh yeah, and director.
The people who work with him, when you’re on set for a few months at a time, do you make sure to leave your teenage daughters at home so he won’t rape them, or do you bring them along to set? I mean, maybe he’ll give you some money or a credit in the movie for their virginity. Nah, he wouldn’t do that! I mean, he’s been rehab- oh wait, no he hasn’t. He has never done any time, or had any actual repercussions for what he did, aside from two months in prison and a few months under house arrest. He’s been living the fucking high life in other countries, winning Oscars and shit everywhere, and the only people who seem to even care anymore that he’s a rapist is me, and American law enforcement.
You may think I’m over reacting, so let’s have a conversation:
Me: I’m so excited to see you! Its been so long! Want to go to that new mexican place for dinner?
You: Sounds great! I’ll have to find a sitter for Tasha.
Me: Isn’t Tasha like 13? She can’t be home alone?
You: Yeah, but I’d feel better if she wasn’t by herself you know. You can never be too careful.
Me: True. Oh, you’ll have to meet my new boyfriend Dave, he’s awesome. I can see if he can watch Tasha if you want.
You: Um, maybe? Whats he like? Does he have kids?
Me: OMG, he’s this amazing artist, he’s a fashion photographer. He’s actually getting really famous. And he’s from Switzerland, very sexy accent! He has two kids too.
You: Yeah, Tasha can stay with him. We can order them a pizza. Why did he move here?
Me: Well, he got into some trouble in Switzerland and was convicted of rape. He didn’t want to go to jail so he’s been living here for about 20 years.
You: Holy shit, you want to leave my daughter with a rapist??
Me: It’s totally cool. He promised he wouldn’t rape her. It was like 20 years ago.
You: Go fuck yourself.
