Britt Hayes, who is an editor with ScreenCrush, retweeted a post from Knowles in which he said the allegations against him were “100% untrue.” She added her own experience with him as a comment, saying, “Harry sexually harassed me. he has sexually harassed other women in this community for years. this wasn’t an anomaly. he is a predator.” Hayes also became aware of the open secret about Knowles being an alleged serial assaulter, but said she was afraid to speak out because of how it could hurt her career as a film writer just starting out in Austin. “There’s just something really, deeply unsettling about him and the way that he enjoys the attention that he gets, and the way that he leverages his power for attention,” Hayes told IndieWire. … [Read more...] about More Women Come Forward Accusing Harry Knowles of Sexual Assault

Meaning, I was amenable to most anything. … [Read more...] about I Was Recruited by Allison Mack’s Sex Cult
There are so many thought-provoking Shia LaBeouf tweets we could have asked Alec Baldwin to respond to last night at the Academy of the Arts Lifetime Achievement Awards. But the one we went with was this one: “The theater belongs not to the great but to the brash.” Does Baldwin agree with his ex-Orphans co-star, who left the play on not-so-good terms? No, of course Baldwin doesn’t agree with him! Here’s what the 30 Rock actor had to say, exactly, when we asked him about the tweet. … [Read more...] about Alec Baldwin Is Not Interested in Anything Shia LaBeouf Has to Say About Theater [UPDATED]
