Does everyone in Hollywood have a convicted sexual predator as a friend? Even the Predator?

    Here we have the biggest scandal in Hollywood...their cozy relationship with sexual predators..

    The Hollywood scandal that needs to be addressed has always been child molestors who get a free pass in Hollywood......even after they are convicted they are still hired and given work.....when will this end?

    Also.....Olivia Munn, the actress who outed this predator.....her career is, likely, now over........

    Actor and Registered Sex Offender Scrubbed from Shane Black's 'The Predator'

    Twentieth Century Fox removed a scene from the upcoming action thriller The Predator after the actor featured in the scene’s sex offender conviction was revealed.
    The Los Angeles Times reports that Steven Wilder Striegel, an actor in the movie The Predator, was taken out of the film after it was revealed by actress Olivia Munn that he was a registered sex offender.

    In 2010, Striegel pled guilty to trying to start a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl over the internet.

    The role that Striegel was playing in the movie was also strange given his past. The Timesreports that he was cast as a “jogger who repeatedly hits on Munn’s character.”

    I don't know why this is suddenly a shock to anyone ... an episode of 'Thirty Rock' from over a decade ago featured a joke about Harvey Weinstein's being a sexual predator. Everyone knows actors who dated underage girls ... Jerry Seinfeld dated a 17-year old High School Student (he was 38). A 41-year-old Don Johnson hooked up with Melanie Griffith when she was 14-years-old ... and not even in West Virginia. Luc Besson, R. Kelly, Taylor Swift (yes, even the ladies) and let's not even talk about Woody Allen. This has been going on in public view for decade and it's always been a 'nudge-nudge, wink-wink, say-no-more' from the movie going public. The celebrity-centric, 'People', etc., tabloids have made this stuff part of their weekly fare forever and people can't get enough of it.

    Now, in response losing an election to a self-admitted philander, Hollywood has suddenly gone all Margaret Dumont over Tinsel Town peccadilloes.

    Puh...lease!

    When you have an industry such as entertainment, that tens of thousands of the most attractive people (and some not so attractive) on earth would literally do anything to get into. Coupled with a lot of influential industry insiders who can make or break anyone's career on a whim ... what do you think will happen?

    In 1955, 20th Century Fox awarded Monroe the richest per-film contract of any actress. When asked her reaction, she is alleged to remark, "It means, I'll never have to suck another c-ck again!"

    #Metoo movement is the Inspector Renault of hashtags...

    The hypocrisy is interesting. Hollywood tried to ruin the career of (conservative actor?) Mel Gibson for a DUI and leaked recording of a crazy drunken rant but apparently sexual predator Harvey Weinstein is still invited to A list parties.
