I certainly hope this is a turning point and not something that falls away after a brief media circus around Weinstein. It’s important that people like Terry Crews and Rob Schneider are coming forward since they aren’t the typical faces of sexual harassment. I kind of hope Corey Feldman will start naming names, because he’s been screaming about the culture of sexual abuse in Hollywood for the better part of 2 decades now (if not longer).
Not that Hollywood (or the broader entertainment industry) ever really helps itself since it still works with and celebrates films by guys like Polanski, Woody Allen, and Michael Jackson. And look I’ve enjoyed and still enjoy older works from all of those individuals, but I don’t idolize them the way Hollywood and the music industry do.
This is definitely not even close to an isolated incident. Neither in scope or in the victims demographics (though I suspect women and children get the worst of it). It really is one of the worst kept secrets out there and Hollywood needs to step up and fix it. And they needed to fixed it decades ago.
