And really 27 years ago from La Rue’s claim?
I heard Segal fled to Japan. He's now a Japanese.

On The Howard Stern Show a few weeks back, George started hinting that he might've messed up earlier in his life. I guess this is it, or just the start.

From the sports world:

Hope Solo says she was sexually assaulted by Sepp Blatter

Anyone else think Roman Polanski is somewhere laughing his head off?

Same here. Just saw them 3 times a few weeks ago. There have been rumors about how shitty Jesse Lacey is for years though.

I don't think so.

First off, what he did was worse than most of the stuff we're hearing now.
And secondly, with everyone else's career getting destroyed because of all these allegations - Polanski isn't going to get as much support and backing as he used to.

Not sure about the Captain but Bunny Rabbit would play "hide the carrot" with Mr. Green Jeans.

Yeah I mean, I had heard he was an asshole, and his lyrics always hinted that he had some skeletons in his closet, but damn. Didn't think it'd be stuff like this.

I know of a couple that are already feeling the heat:

Marilyn Manson bassist Twiggy Ramirez was kicked out of the band after a rape accusation last month and Crystal Castles had their tour canceled after Ethan Kath was accused of rape and abuse by former bandmate Alice Glass.

The hits just keep coming.

Supergirl and The Flash showrunner Andrew Kreisberg suspended over sexual harassment allegations.

Wow, just crazy.

Forget Polanski. Imagine if Michael Jackson was still alive. Pretty much every one of these stories is substantially more credible than any of the Jackson allegations yet the LAPD was obsessed with him for like 15 years. Just think about if they woulda devoted even 10% of their efforts against Jackson to any one of these creeps.

Paul Reubens too. God forbid a gay man go cruising with other consenting adults.

During an appearance on The Dr. Oz Show on Friday, Judy Haim addressed a recent National Enquirer report in which former actor Dominick Brascia, who was close with Haim, alleged that a 19-year-old Charlie Sheen sexually assaulted a 13-year-old Haim

With waves and waves of accusations coming out of Hollywood, I'm surprised professional wrestling has been so quiet. As bad as Hollywood is I'd imagine wrestling is on another level.

I need a score card or a spreadsheet to keep up as the accusations keep coming at a steady clip.

Was Richard Dreyfuss mentioned in this thread yet? Not as a disgruntled parent whose son was being stalked by Kevin Spacey, but as a perpetrator himself?

I hope he just releases the stuff via his website and gives the proceeds to a women's charity.
I do, too.

Worse than most is pretty debatable when it was one account, and I wasn’t defending Polanski’s alleged account, just pointing out how it took decades upon decades to finally show how that incident was less the exception and more the norm, and also how amazing it is that all of these stories are coming out all in a manner of just over a month? Woody Allen was right, it is a witch hunt. Perhaps they are all witches, but still, it’s a witch hunt nonetheless, and it seems rather convienent that all these people are being taken down all at the same time, no? I mean, C.K. obscenely masturbating and Takei doing something well outside the statute of limitations is the same as what Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey did? I don’t think so.

And all those openly misogynist rappers. Lots of athletes are like that too. Fashion industry.

Seems like pretty-much everyone in a position of power or celebrity is just there for sex. The attractive ones generally get it consensually. Then there's all the ugly ones who have to get weird.
