Seems like the latest trend in Hollywood is to accuse people of sexual harassment and crimes. It is really quite disturbing. I’m not trying to downplay what many of these actors and actresses have gone through however the timing is suspect. Many of these women – and a few men – are being heralded as heroes. I think not. They are coming forward NOW after years of silence and their perpetrator victimizing other people. Hero, they are not.
