All this knee-jerk over-reaction and PC, social media bullshit is getting out of hand. Netflix have just lost a lot of respect with their handling of all this.

That's what happens when people have waaaaaay to much spare time

Flush men is the new black so followwww

So people not wanting to work with a child molester is out of control PC? The fact it happened years ago doesn't change what happened. It also means he got away with it for years, and it only came out now because an environment exists where the victim won't automatically be stiffled.

I dont condom any of this type of crap. but the real question is, why is this now just coming out? Thats what urks me to no end.

Whats the real motive behind this coming out so late and now?

Most likely he tried to extort Spacey for money and he refused. and didn't get the payout he wanted.

A couple of things. First, it's a snowball effect. People have known for decades about people like Weinstein and Spacey. The predatory behavior in Hollywood is legendary (Corey Feldman has been shouting from the rooftops for years about the way directors have been abusing young boys, ditto that for Rose McGowan and Weinstein). And the vast majority of the people who would normally focus the outrage haven't cared, because of the power, influence, and politics of the people doing it.

Then Harvey Weinstein's brother wants to eject Harvey from the company they founded, primarily because they hate each other and the company is tanking. A story that has been spiked 2 times earlier gets the green light (with leaked info) and Harvey is in the spotlight. You have real victims like Rose McGowan (who has been consistent in her allegations for years, but no one would listen) to back it up, and suddenly, now that his power is gone and he's no longer a gateway to stardom, Harvey gets in the crosshairs.

Here's where it gets interesting. Along with the obvious victims who have been vocal all along, you start to get the victims who were too afraid to talk. Everyone in Hollywood knows about Harvey and his sleaziness, so now the spotlight is on the other actresses who have worked with him. That's when you see the pile-on happen. What actress is going to say, "Of course I blew him for a part in his movies! Five minutes of discomfort have translated into a lifetime of wealth and fame that you couldn't dream of!"? All of the women who worked with him now have to position themselves on the side of "disturbed, but afraid to talk" as opposed to "willing to tickle his balls for fame." Thus the flood of accusations, as everyone wants to position themselves in the best light. And thus the normal holier-than-thou screechers (who were perfectly willing to ignore him so long as he was "their guy" ... see Clinton, Bill) now have the green light to condemn it all.

The problem with this kind of thing (for Hollywood) is that you can't direct an avalanche. As soon as the revelations start drawing news coverage, everyone who has been afraid to talk starts getting braver, and then it starts taking down the other pervs who are still profitable. Hence Kevin Spacey. And there will be more, because Hollywood is a cesspool. Wait until the pictures of Brian Singer (who is not shy about being photographed with boy-toys of questionable age) or the stars of Nickelodeon start appearing on the nightly news with stories of what they had to do at 14 or 16 to keep their jobs. Hopefully the coming flood will flush all of the human garbage out of Hollywood...
