Golden Globe Hypocrites

I couldn’t watch the Golden Globes this year. The whole wearing black as a form of protest made me want to throw up.

 

In a recent interview Alec Baldwin admitted that everyone had heard stories that Harvey Weinstein had raped Rose McGowan. As in, everyone in Hollywood knew.

 

Meryl Streep recently called out Ivanka and Melania Trump for their silence.

 

Meryl Streep did not call out Georgina Chapman.

 

Last year Meryl Streep went on a rant about Donald Trump. Where is her rant this year? Where is her apology for her silence? Her donation to the politically correct cause?

 

There is video of Ben Affleck grabbing Hilarie Burton’s breast. He went on Stephen Colbert where he was supposedly “embarrassed” but then talked about the donations he’d be making. Because donations change everything. Thanks Stephen Colbert for giving him the platform for his damage control.

 

Oh, most of Hollywood still lauds Roman Polanski. They still can’t call him a rapist. They still are incapable of acknowledging that there is never ever a time that it is ok to anally penetrate a child. I mean, unless you are Roman Polanski.

 

Which brings me to, and I hate to say this, but Ronan Farrow. I loved his article that broke Weinstein-gate. Is it called that yet? Hmm. Still, I can’t help but wonder where his article about his mother is. You know, the one where he calls her out for her support of Polanski. Maybe Mia had a rough life, but she was married to Frank Sinatra. She was in a long-term relationship with Woody Allen. After the whole Woody thing fell apart, she still very publicly supported Roman.

 

No. I don’t expect Ronan to roast his mom, but maybe take a look at his mom’s actions and support of abusive men and look a little deeper into how the rest of Hollywood was on the same page, still is on the same page, even if they’re wearing designer black at an awards ceremony.

 

Mira Sorvino’s career was ruined. Who questioned that?

 

Kevin Spacey’s career wasn’t. Bill Cosby’s career wasn’t. Danny Masterson’s wasn’t. Brett Ratner’s wasn’t. There is a long list.

 

Oh, and Roman Polanski still has the support of Hollywood, probably most of those wearing the black tonight.

 

People knew what Harvey Weinstein was doing, what he did. This wasn’t some explosive secret that was blown open. Sorry Ronan. You just had the power and privilege that allowed you to write about what everyone knew.

I couldn’t watch the Golden Globes tonight because the all black protest was sickening. I’d rather all of those hypocrites say that they felt powerless, that they didn’t know what to do, the way Harvey’s victims felt, except they couldn’t possibly know how Harvey’s victims felt, unless they were victims themselves.

 

And if they were victims they’d know that no amount of black could ever make it right.
