    ^^^ that US magazine article is what I was referring to when I said everyone condemning Weinstein were very tame in their comments.

    Well I think most of the women were pretty adamant.

    I think some of the men were strong (Cumberbatch comes to mind). I thought Affleck was by far the weakest, but I believe he's got his own demons (and his brother does too) so he can't be too critical or he'll be outed as a hypocrite.

    Listen to Barbara Walters response. IMO, she didn't wanna hear it.

    That was a weird response from Barbara Walters.

    Is that really surprising? Kimmel started out with crude comedy, I remember he and Adam Carolla used to do the Man Show on Comedy Central as one example. I’ve always felt his current late night tv show host persona was the phony one.

    Yeah I actually don't mind Kimmel. He's turned into somewhat of a liberal spokesperson for one reason: the health care situation.

    The only thing I thought was hypocritical was that none of the late night guys really took it to Weinstein when the news broke. I don't know if they had directives from on high, but they should have crushed that man. A source of pain in their own industry guilty of far worse misogyny than the tape of Trump (not excusing Trump).

    That lady is a hideous, self absorbed c***. Always has been, always will be. The Mariah Carey of journalist. Just a massive hole of a t***

    There are very few black and white things in life. You abuse a woman and/or children. You deserved to be destroyed. Just like a dog attacking a human being, the dog is destroyed. That is the same thing that needs to happen to abusers of women and children. And they ALL need to be destroyed.

    I wish I could find Roman Polanski somewhere and introduce his noodle to his a** so he can experience what he did to that 13 year old girl long ago. Time to bulldoze all these f***ers. I would gladly volunteer to drive. I would sleep like a baby every night too.

    Disney has done it for decades. I don't necessarily see a big problem in it, but it definitely doesn't seem appropriate today. They weren't condoning it and Disney could easily come forward and say, "it was done to make sure people never forget what happens! It was done with bitterness just like Seth MacFarlane's bit at the award show!"
