It pisses the fuck out of me that Trump was so easily let off the hook when he is as much of a fucking monster as these people, and now he's the president!

Yeah, not excusing his behavior at all, but isn't this known? The only change is that he's apologizing now.

Calm down. Puck said that it happens everywhere, not that everyone does it. This is an absolutely widespread problem. Women who are harrased and assaulted by men are much more victims than dudes with sad persecution complexes.

I don't think he's saying that in support of Affleck's actions or to defend him, lol. He's right, this type of stuff happens all the time in every industry.

They'll just recast him and move forward.

Then people will forget.

More or less. As said in the other thread, Mel Gibson was welcomed back, not to mention others. He'll take a time out. People in Hollywood are too quick to forgive their own.

You really doing a "not all men" thing here?

This happens in every industry. It's a fact.

I can appreciate that most men don't ever see or understand the experiences of women who get catcalled, groped and raped.

And when women are victimized, it's hard for them to see and trust the vast majority of men who would never dare.

No... youíre reading it wrong. The point is that we canít stop at exposing Ben Affleck as garbage. We have to keep going and accept that this is an epidemic that isnít exclusive to the film industry.

Easy enough to explain Reeve's new Batman, just tie it in with Flashpoint.

Batfleck was a mistake. A ton of Hollywood is all messed up. Thankfully I'm not that interested in their movies and tv shows anymore. I hope the cast and crew of Better Call Saul are on the up and up. That's all I need, even GOT is kinda boring to me now.

I doubt it. It was the alcoholism and his general sense of unreliability as of late that probably got them spooked. He doesn't seem to be keeping in shape and all that

Not only does Hollywood have a short memory, they also don't really care that much at the end of the day

I think Ben can get out of this unscathed if his PR works on it, but also it's looking like just maybe the industry is having a culture shift towards holding some people accountable for this kind of shit

I dunno, we'll see

Oh I know it will happen in all walks of life. I guess I misconstrued the 'everywhere' aspect of the post.

Yeah, whatever weird stuff was going on with him maybe getting booted or leaving, it had zero to do with this incident specifically.

This happened like 14 years ago and the reason he has to address it now is because Burton brought it up after Rose called him out for making a statement about Weinstein. There's like 6 degrees of shit going on that got us here lol.
