Terry Richardson Continues To Be A Douche-Canoe, Gets Called Out On Twitter

As you all may have guessed, I spend a lot of time on Twitter. A LOT. I like to know what people are up to. So, as I’m “patrolling”, I come across this on my feed:

 

Excuse me while I heave!
Excuse me while I heave!

 

THAT’S RIGHT, KIDDIES! THAT “LEGENDARY” PIECE OF SHIT, TERRY RICHARDSON, STRIKES AGAIN! And this poor model must be a rookie because how dare she be offended by his disgusting and unprofessional behavior to the point of posting it on Twitter?! The injustice of it all! (/sarcasm) She, in her subsequent tweets, is genuinely shocked and confused as to how the way Terry carries on is acceptable behavior. Because apparently it is, if media has been teaching us anything! This was especially emphasized when she received responses like this from comparable ass wipes:

 

This is not a test of local moron system.
This is not a test of the local moron system.

 

Really, dude?! See, it’s totally not a big deal to folks like Carlton who figure, if you don’t like the heat, you should just stay out of the kitchen. The heat being blatant and unyielding abuse and the kitchen being, well, for a woman? THE ENTIRE FUCKING PLANET. Can ignorant men do us all a favor and stop acting like lack of control over their gross urges is anyone’s fault but their own and that they DON’T need to check themselves?! Stop telling women to just “buck up” and start policing yourselves as well as your fellow man. Sweetheart.

Furthermore, can the “industry” get it together enough to stop supporting this sort of predatory behavior that is, usually in Terry’s case, illegal? It seems like no matter how many women come out of the woodwork to expose this guy, people continue to turn a blind eye. Yeah, I’m talking about all your faves who’ve shot/hung with him for a slice of fame (hello, Jared and Lupita). There is nothing special about Terry Richardson that the industry didn’t actually give him. They need to go and give that shit to someone else and let Richardson end up in jail the way he should. Actually, scratch that; I hope, the next time he victimizes a woman (because he WILL), she bites his dick off. Clean off. And then beats him with it. 

*Update: Emma Appleton has just deleted her Twitter due to both fear for her career for being “difficult” and likely harassment. Since, you know, God forbid a person should defend themselves, right?  

‘X-Men’ Director Bryan Singer Accused of Sexually Abusing a Minor Again – LAPD Ignored 1999 Allegations

X-Men director Bryan Singer faces allegations that he sexually abused a 15 year old boy in a lawsuit filed in federal court Wednesday. The suit alleges that Singer forcibly sodomized Michael Egan (now in his 30s), when he was 15 and that they had numerous sexual encounters over the next two years. The suit describes parties at a California mansion where drugs and liquor were used to take advantage of young boys sexually.

The lawsuit is quite graphic in describing the main incident, stating that Singer plied the plaintiff drugs and alcohol in order to allegedly sexually and psychologically abuse Egan.

“…an alcoholic beverage . . . and mentioned finding a role for him in an upcoming movie that he was directing.. Defendant Singer solicited plaintiff to perform oral sex upon him, which plaintiff resisted…Singer flagrantly disregarded plaintiff’s unwillingness to submit, and forced plaintiff’s head underwater to make plaintiff perform oral sex upon him. When plaintiff pulled his head out of the water in order to breathe, defendant Singer demanded that he continue which plaintiff refused…Defendant Singer then forced plaintiff to continue performing oral sex upon him outside of the pool, and subsequently forcibly sodomized plaintiff.”

A lawyer for Singer issued a statement which states in part,

“The claims made against Bryan Singer are completely without merit… We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit.”

Egan’s lawyer is Jeff Herman, known for bringing suit against Elmo puppeteer, Kevin Clash.  He stated,

“Hollywood has a problem with the sexual exploitation of children…This is the first of many cases I will be filing to give these victims a voice and to expose the issue.”

While Singer has not been directly accused of abuse of a minor before, there were allegations of inappropriate handling of minor actors’ nudity on the set of Singer’s film, Apt Pupil,  wherein three young actors were allegedly told to disrobe completely for a scene without warning. The actors’ families brought a lawsuit against the production company that was later settled. It’s important to note that the LAPD was made aware of the accusations back in 1999, as per Variety’s article.

While this suit has not yet gone to court it is just the latest in a long line of tales of Hollywood star-makers leveraging their power over young people to exploit them sexually and emotionally. Going back to the Roman Polanski incident in the 70s, it seems that the casting couch has become even more insidious for minors. Drugs, liquor and promises of fame are used to oppress and abuse these children and youths when they are far from willing participants.

For years there have been whispers that a certain Nickelodeon mega hit producer has allegedly sexually victimized many of the stars of his shows. Power corrupts, but it seems if even a fraction of the stories that slip out are true, the people in power in Hollywood were probably pretty damn corrupt when they got to power.  Not helping the abusive culture are many of the stage parents who seem more than willing to whore their children out to ride the fame they may get in return.

Also disturbing is the naming of Marc Collins-Rector, former chairman of the Digital Entertainment Network, in the Singer suit as well. Collins-Rector has been convicted of sexual crimes against minors in the past according to Variety.  Even if Singer is cleared of the accusations there is some level of guilt by association that has to be questioned.  Who knows that these  go on? Everyone? If so, those who don’t stop them are just as guilty as the perpetrators themselves.

Let it be noted, that a handful of folks in Hollywood are referring to these most recent accusations of abuse as nothing more than a “shakedown“.  I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

What are your thoughts? Innocent until proven guilty? Or is Hollywood (and everyone involved, past and present) merely sweeping sexual abuse under the red carpet once again?
