On Thursday, actress Chloe Dykstra published a post on Medium detailing abuse allegations about an ex-boyfriend, which many have speculated was about Nerdist founder and TV and podcast host Chris Hardwick. AMC, which was set to broadcast Talking with Chris Hardwick this weekend, announced that it won’t air the series “while we assess the situation.”
It's sad people have no standards anymore. whatever happened to innocent til proven guilty?
innocent till proven guilty is the way things should be approached instead of this recent guilty till proven innocent mindset.
nowadays you can simply be accused of something and get in trouble for it regardless if it's true or not. until he's found guilty in court etc, no action should be taken against him. period. it's like people are just too afraid they will look bad if they do nothing. but I would say screw em, because it's too easy for someone to accuse another of something as if people base punishing people off accusations you could simply claim someone did something bad if you simply don't like them even if they did nothing wrong.
it's like ever since that Harvey Weinstein incident people are claiming sexual harassment etc for next to nothing.
It's become insane. The comparison some are making to the resemblance of #MeToo run amok to that of the Communist witch-hunt mania of the Fifties isn't that far-fetched--it's reached a point where all someone has to do is breathe the words 'sexual harassment' for an individual to become so radioactive as to become virtually unemployable. I'm not at all against seeing true bastards get their just deserts, and if genuinely violent and abusive behavior is proven against them they should receive the proper legal penalties for it; but it has to be proven first, not simply alleged and tried in the court of public opinion and the popular press. This is another case of reactive behavior becoming as bad, possibly even worse, than the abuses that prompted the reaction in the first place.
