Absolutely gutted! 😫😫😫
Love(d) him so much. Really don't want it to be true but fear it very much is.

Sad isnt it

Just saw the twitter comment that said something like 'if you saw an actors name trending it used to be that they were dead. In 2017 its because they are an abuser'

???????

Iamagreyhoundhearmeroar Wed 01-Nov-17 17:28:56

No! sad

CrazyDuchess Wed 01-Nov-17 17:31:05

Gosh I thought you was going to say he was dead sad but this is just terrible

I was just looking for the other long running thread but seen its been deleted.

Is that the Corey Feldman thread? Towards the end it felt like big names were deliberately being said to get the thread zapped.

ZeroFuchsGiven Wed 01-Nov-17 17:35:25

Yes, I was lurking but didn't comment, its a shame it was zapped tbh but I never seen it since this morning so don't know what was said.

At this point, I wonder which male actors/producers/directors haven't sexually harassed anyone. sad

pipistrell Wed 01-Nov-17 21:17:17

I haven’t read the accusations but just because someone’s name gets mentioned once doesn’t make it true.

ownedbySWD Wed 01-Nov-17 21:22:34

He admitted to it, iirc.

I'm not surprised by any of this anymore.

Lweji Wed 01-Nov-17 21:22:37

Dustin's apologies:

"I have the utmost respect for women and feel terrible that anything I might have done could have put her in an uncomfortable situation. I am sorry. It is not reflective of who I am."

Clearly he isn't denying doing anything, because he knows he was capable of doing it and has done it in the past.

I am absolutely gutted. He’s my favourite actor and reminds me very much of my dad.

I just think he’s vile now!

I wonder if most men over a certain age are guilty of sexual abuse/harassment.
I remember waitressing in the 80s and it was considered normal to be groped by male customers, if we complained to the restaurant owner we were told there were other girls lining up to take our places if we wanted to leave.
This is a very much engrained male behaviour, I hope it's finally recognised and something done about it.
In the meantime I bet there'll be many other much loved actors facing allegations of abuse.

Is that why he was "ill" and couldn't be on the Graham Norton show last week?

pipistrell Wed 01-Nov-17 21:45:09

Lweji’s quote doesn’t read like an admission of guilt to me

Lweji Wed 01-Nov-17 21:46:42

Lweji’s quote doesn’t read like an admission of guilt to me

He didn't say he'd never done anything like that. So...

IfYouGoDownToTheWoodsToday Wed 01-Nov-17 21:47:34

Slim you are probably right. We were all so disappointed as I’d sat down with my dds to specifically watch him.hmm

Slimthistime Wed 01-Nov-17 21:56:59

I was watching for Emma and Claire, if Emma was mates with him as she said, she will be so upset.

I have been accused of being paranoid around men after an incident at work, I hope all those people are eating their words now.

Oblomov17 Wed 01-Nov-17 21:57:58

No surprise! None of them surprise me now.

hmmmmm Wed 01-Nov-17 22:05:21

sad

Slimthistime Wed 01-Nov-17 22:12:53

After what he did to
Meryl Streep I thought he was an arse anyway

IfYouGoDownToTheWoodsToday Wed 01-Nov-17 22:45:36

What did he do to Meryl?

SaskiaRembrandtWasFramed Wed 01-Nov-17 22:50:13

He slapped her in the face when they were working together, then made nasty comments about her late boyfriend www.independent.co.uk/news/people/dustin-hoffman-slapped-and-taunted-meryl-streep-with-the-name-of-her-dead-boyfriend-book-claims-a6959356.html
