He admitted today that the accusations are true. Good on him for owning up to his heinous behavior, but he still failed to say one word: Sorry. All this public relations BS about remorse and regret, but no apologies to the people he harmed.

These indicidents occurred from 2002 to 2005, and he already apologized to some of the women years ago.  He has been directly apologizing to all of his current coworkers for the impact that his shunning is causing them.  

He's getting it done.  I don't think there's a stopwatch running on him to see how fast he's doing it.

And he waited until he had no practical choice in the matter.  What a jackoff.

Hollywood is a concentrated sample of Humanity.  All the hedonistic sins and crimes that people in Hollywood commit can be found everywhere else.  

We’re rapidly approaching the Age of Transparency.  Every nasty habit, dirty little secret or vice can and will be put in the public spotlight by anyone who has access to the proper technology.

That anyone is surprised about this shocks me.  There's a lot worse than this pervert piece of shit in hollywood.

And D.C.

But hollywood wins the prize.  It's gotten a lot worse. Pedophiles all over the place and plenty of money to cover their disgusting perversions and the consequences of their actions.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned Kevin Spacey yet, but he may as well kiss his career good-bye.  Maybe Meryl Street will give him a standing ovation at this year's oscars event.

We really don't know if it's worse today than in the past.  It could very well be that it was worse in the past.  We'll never know for sure.    

In the past, the Code of Silence was very strong in Hollywood, in Washington, D.C. and even in our local towns.  Sexual assault victims were terrified of speaking out, as the consequences were too great.  In today's world, victims have a lot more opportunity to speak up and have justice be done.

I don't think justice will be done because the system and those who run it are pretty much compromised. They might make an example out of one person - one scapegoat - to keep everyone thinking that they are on the job and on the ball, but that's it.  A lot of these men have billions of dollars.  That buys off a lot of people.

It's not easy to break ranks.  Most don't have the courage to do it.  A lot is at stake - their career, their livelihood, their families.

And now he will have to remove those kind of jokes from his routine. At least he owned up to it all. His career will be halted for a year or two and people will forgive him and forget about it. What he did was uncomfortable and perverted but it's hardly the worst thing he could have done. It's nowhere near the same level as being accused or molestation or rape. I'm not saying there was nothing wrong with what he did but it's a forgivable act.

listen i'm not EVER going to condone it.  or.......and this might sound a bit off.....actuall judge him.  Cause i wasn't there.  i do not know the real circumstances here.  at least.......as far as we know.....he didn't rape anyone.

this won't be as damaging.

Again I MUST repeat....i am NOT condoning his actions.
