Hollywood used to have one big problem: Rampant liberalism. Now, it looks as though Tinseltown may graduated to two big problems.
Over the course of the last week, we learned a whole lot about some of our favorite producers of film and television; namely, that those are the top of the Hollywood pile have been getting away with vile and atrocious sexual behavior for decades, despite widespread knowledge of their sins.
And we’re not talking about your deviant bedroom shenanigans either. Hollywood’s latest dirt-bomb has scattered rampant allegations of harassment, misconduct, groping, and rape throughout the industry, so far centered around notorious movie producer Harvey Weinstein whose filthy antics were a well-known reality of doing business with his media empire. The allegations against Weinstein were so well known, in fact, the NBC news’ heads are about to roll after the network opted to ignore a breakthrough report on them back in 2004.
Now, as Weinstein’s accusers continue to come forward, finding strength in numbers, a great many more Hollywood higher-ups are being accused of similar behavior, including some of the film industry’s biggest names.
“A former ‘ER’ actress claims that she was sexually and racially harassed daily on set — and George Clooney helped ‘blacklist’ her from Hollywood when she complained.
“’Clooney helped blacklist me when I spoke up abt harassment on ER. ’women who dont play the game lose career’ I did,” tweeted Vanessa Marquez, who played a nurse on the show’s first three seasons.
“She accused actor Eriq La Salle and a crew member of being ‘p—sy grabbers’ and said racial abuse about her Mexican heritage came from ‘Anthony,Noah,Julianna,’ referring to cast members Anthony Edwards, Noah Wyle, and Julianna Margulies.”
Shockingly, these sorts of abusive behaviors seem to be the norm for Hollywood in general, and have been bubbling just below the surface for a great many years.
While Weinstein’s misconduct has been the focal point of the new Hollywood accusations, hearing Clooney’s name brought into the mix hasn’t surprised many. Clooney, a staunch liberal who has been using his position of relative notoriety to defile the very office of the President, has been far too entrenched in the leftist Tinseltown swamp to have come out clean in this awakening.
In the days and weeks to come, we should expect to hear a great deal more about these improprieties, and a wholesale shift in the Hollywood power structure is likely to follow.
