    We should all start mining Family Guy episodes to see which shoes will drop next.

    Yeah, what a coincidence.

    I suspect a lot more hollywooders are in the know as well, but keep it in the family.

    Don't blame MacFarlane. He explained his motivations:

    “In 2011, my friend and colleague Jessica Barth, with whom, I worked on the Ted films, confided in me regarding her encounter with Harvey Weinstein and his attempted advances…It was with this account in mind that when I hosted the Oscars in 2013, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to take a hard swing in his direction, this came from a place of loathing and anger. There is nothing more abhorrent and indefensible than abuse of power such as this. I respect and applaud my friend Jessica and those sharing their stories for their decision to come forward, and for being champions of the truth.”
    He has clarified that by saying that when someone shares these stories with him, he can't directly publicize the details of the incident without the person's permission, but he can let the perpetrator know he is on to them by mocking them on his show (or elsewhere).

    Not blaming him, blaming an industry that has looked the other way.

    Makes one wonder what he or other writers at Family Guy know about Spacey.

    And that clip was so specific and so unrelated to the plot that it can't be an accident.

    This movement to expose predators is really starting to roll. We’re like two weeks from Kirk Cameron being hired for every 2018 release.

    I don't trust Kirk Cameron.

    Scott Baio and David Spade (look it up) have been rolling through Playboy playmates and such for 30+ years. In other words, they're doing the exact thing that any normal heterosexual male would do if given that level of fame and decent ability to pull the ladies. Although I can't stand him, I think we can trust Ryan Reynolds too.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    Very weird thing for you to know.

    ‘Kevin Spacey has set gay rights back’: Actor blasted for response to sexual misconduct claim

    “Coming out stories should not be used to deflect from allegations of sexual assault,” GLAAD president Sarah Kate Ellis said in a statement. “This is not a coming out story about Kevin Spacey, but a story of survivorship by Anthony Rapp and all those who bravely speak out against unwanted sexual advances.”

    Even worse, they said, was the implication that the two paragraphs in his statement might be related in any way.

    “Kevin Spacey has set gay rights back fifty years by a) conflating homosexuality with” Rapp’s allegations, one Twitter user said, “and b) Saying that being gay is a ‘choice.’ ”

    Andy Dick was trending today. I thought he must've died, but no, he got fired from his most recent gig (I can't remember his last one, thinking 10 plus years ago?) due to allegations of sexual assault. Just fyi, after reading through some tweets it seems he denies assaulting anyone but does admit that he has "licked" a few people's faces.

    He also gave Phil Hartman's wife, who was in recovery at the time, drugs. He's a pretty repellent individual.

    Not surprisingly, lots of Kevin Spacey abuse stories coming out now. So much for the "I must have been drunk" defense.

    I've been saying this for some time now...

    Pretty much every man ever has the potential to be accused of being guilty of "sexual assault", because the line and definition is being moved. What is "unwanted sexual advances"? I have an acquaintance that says claims she was "sexually assaulted" because she had a classmate ask her out to dinner 3 different times. The social outrage was so great that she is going to talk to an advisor at school to get counseling.

    Now this is a far cry from Weinstien obviously, but it is now on the forefront of everyone's mind.

    The biggest problem that I have with all of this is...proof. It is typically hearsay. Someone accuses someone, they are automatically guilty. No longer innocent until proven guilty, you are guilty if accused. Period.

    1. Kevin Spacey was accused.
    2. SAME DAY, Netflix cancels House of Cards after Season 6 that is currently being shot.
    3. Netflix issues a SAME DAY statement announcing how they will keep everyone safe from Kevin Spacey. SAME DAY!

    There is no burden of proof for a majority of this stuff. The serial predators are going to be legitimatized by the vast amount of accusers, but the one-off's are done. Careers are over.

    The hypocrisy of the whole thing is that Kevin Spacey won an Academy Award in 1999 for American Beauty. He played a 42 year old man who sexually fantasized about his teenage daughters best friend.

    1999 - Kevin Spacey portrays a man who is a predator of an underage child - Hollywood says "Academy Award".

    2017 - Kevin Spacey is accused of being a predator of an underage child in 1986. - Hollywood says "die".

    It's going to get much much worse folks.
