Hollywood’s Accused Sexual Harassers, Molesters, Rapists – The List, So Far
Hollywood’s Accused Harassers, Molesters, Rapists – The Rap Sheet, So Far

As the Harvey Weinstein scandal spreads like a wildfire through Hollywood and worldwide, the courage of those coming forward to name names inspires similar courage in others, we cannot allow ourselves to become so accustomed to the allegations that they lose their power to outrage.

A Hollywood mogul’s ouster has brought forward more stories of misogyny and abuse in cinema and other industries, and renewed focus on old accusations against alleged predators. Some men have faced serious consequences after the Weinstein affair; others haven’t. Check back here for updates to the list.

Although some male victims have come forward, the alleged victims here are mostly vulnerable young women and children. Worse, so far, all of the alleged abusers are the very men whose primary responsibility in any civilized society is to protect women and children.

As a means to understand just how, yes, institutional these allegations are, here is a list (in no particular order) of the accused and their alleged misdeeds, which will be updated as needed.

The only thing nuttier than what these sex-addicted pervs did is what they get at rehab

Background: From Weinstein to #metoo

For three decades, producer Harvey Weinstein was one of Hollywood’s most powerful players. Miramax, the production company he co-founded with his brother Bob, won dozens of Oscars for movies like Shakespeare in LoveThe English Patient and Pulp Fiction and launched the careers of major film stars.

Rumours persisted for years that Mr. Weinstein was using his prestige and influence to sexually exploit women in the film industry. Then on Oct. 5, The New York Times opened the floodgates: In an investigative report, several actresses and former employees gave firsthand accounts of Mr. Weinstein demanding sexual favours, promising fame and threatening ruined careers.

More women came forward with stories about his alleged abuse. Three women, including Italian actress Asia Argento, told The New Yorker magazine that Mr. Weinstein raped them. Further reports alleged that Mr. Weinstein tried to quash the New York Times and New Yorker’s investigations using private detectives, including former Mossad agents, to track the journalists and the women who spoke with them.

After the initial Times story broke, Mr. Weinstein took a leave of absence from The Weinstein Company, which later fired him. Police in New York and London reviewed sex-assault claims against him and the state of New York began pursuing a civil-rights probe of his company. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voted to expel Mr. Weinstein from their ranks. Directors, producers and filmmakers faced intensifying questions about how much they knew about his conduct and when.

But the public conversation also shifted to broader questions of institutional sexism and violence against women. Using the hashtag #MeToo, women and men began sharing their stories of harassment and abuse. New complaints, official and otherwise, surfaced against powerful men in film, TV, the news media and politics, while old complaints got renewed public attention. Below are some examples of the major ones.

Unless otherwise indicated, these stand only as allegations.
